Qsilver7

Thank you for this and my apologies for missing your original link. I shall have a go at getting the sensor out to clean it and see how we get on. It is priced at 87.00 GBP in the UK and appears to be main dealer only? It is also "non-returnable" so I really don't want to be buying one to find it was repairable just be giving it a clean up, or an adjustment.

Thanks again.

Bruce

I've never had to take the rear ones out and the one issue I had with the front is just a misaligned arm. Hopefully your one only needs a clean and maybe wd40 around the hinges. Keep us posted.

Well today I got the car over my pit. Even armed with the instructions posted here!! It is not immediately obvious how to get this sensor out?

The arm is in place and does not appear damaged. I gave it another good squirt of switch cleaner and the fault clears, only to return within a few minutes of driving.

> puncture warning light comes in Amber.
> air suspension inactive comes on and dash switch lights go out within about 30 secs of puncture warning light.

Park the car up and leave it for 30 minutes. All is fine again with no warnings and suspension raises and lowers on the button. No leaks and no sagging. Compressor is not over running.

I will try again and remove the sensor.

Have a look at the other sensors just in case. The tyre warning is usually triggered when there is an issue upfront and not when the rears are bad.
