    There is no valve, just 2 O rings which as Wammers said can be replaced. I've had a new air bag with only one O ring fitted which will not give a good seal.

    Any idea what size o ring? Are they like changing the o rings on the valve block. Pop out the brass ring with a screwdriver? I took a little off the end of the pipe where it looked rough but there are still a few bubbles coming out of the connection ( not as many as before )

    Use a plastic crochet hook to get the o rings out once you've removed the collet so you won't score the inside. As posted there should be two o rings.

    If you shorten the pipe too much, it will no longer go fully in as there is a raised collar near the end, it's there to aid insertion of the pipe, giving the insertion tool something to push against.

    Cars not dropped over night either might just have to get. Should I just get a selection of o rings and see what fits best?

    If it isn't dropping overnight then no leak from the bag part of the system.

    It will self-level down, more sometimes if a wheel is down a hole or the car is at an odd angle.

    It’s tricked me into thinking it was fixed before I’ll keep an eye on it there were a couple of tiny bubbles still once the pipe had gone back in

    Both of the rear bags would only leak if I put pressure on the pipe

    Enough to deform the o-rings?!

    That suggests that the pipe was not in past the second O ring.

    Get some Red Rubber Grease smeared around the end of the pipe before re-inserting it. The pipe is 6mm so I imagine you'll want "O" rings with a similar inner diameter.

    When fitting pipes into O'rings on EAS system use a little silicone grease on O'rings and end of pipes, push pipes fully into opening. Then pressurise system and push pipes in again until they can go no further.
