    Hi, after a week of use this morning the rear was just about at the top of the tyre, the compressor could pump it back up. This just leaves a small air leak somewhere in the pipes of air springs. Wouldn't it show quicker if it's a leak like over night ? cheers chris

    most probably the bags! you can check em before you take em off with soapy water, jackit up and take wheels off and apply soapy water, mine leaked, could not get my head around it, did what i said and it was the bags, changed em and had no problems since

    Hi Chris,
    Had the same on my 04 TD5. The problem is usually caused by the "crease" where they roll over. Muck gets in and causes intermittent leaking.
