    Yet again my air ride, the switch is showing & lighting up (almost) as it should, registers going up and down, but no air going on, I have now looked at it yet as I need to calm right down before I lift the bonnet up just to look!! but from normal height to low, it will just flash, and wont go on to the next stage

    I figured that's what you'd say, but the force of the Dark Side compels me to try.

    You saying it will not lower? Unscrew the air silencer on the side of the valve block and look for white deposits.

    If you stab each of the bags with a stilleto knife I can guarantee to you that it will lower fully on all 4 corners. ;)
    Hope you get to the bottom of the problem, and the suspension.

    Think @Datatek meant dessicant from the dryer can play havoc with the valve block.

    I reckon feed pipe to reservoir has pinhole leak from past exhaust blow. You need some pipe?

    Are you leaving the door open for the reservoir to have enough time to fill seems you were pushing the control but not leaving much time for ti to raise or lower but also grrrrs post is a good shout that's what I had on mine the feed from valve block to tank pipe had hole

    But a pinhole in feed pipe would not stop car lowering?
