The way I see it, a thread is like a child except it's left where it was birthed. From there, the wolf pack nurtures it into whatever it may be.

And I'm sorry to hear about the pup. My daughter has been looking for the eventual replacement for our rescue. He's either 9 or 10 and sleeps alot so his day is near. We've had him for 6 years.

I agree. Your dog looks like a sweetheart.

Well lets try posting this again. Seems the site is having issues.

Anyways the air suspension module shows to be in PERRYSBURG, OH.

With tomorrow being the delivery date to here in Alabama.

That's the good news.

The bad news is it also shows in red letters :

Shipment exception
Weather delay

So I don't know if I will get it tomorrow or not

Man, I had the same aggravation since Monday! USPS left me a card to sign as the eBay seller sent signature req'd. Smart, sure. But no less annoying.

I signed it and TAPED it to the mailbox in a plastic sandwich bag. Ain't NO "I didn't see it" going on here. I have the video of the letter carrier taking it off and promptly driving away. No package. So I promptly went online yesterday, filled out a request for redelivery (playing by the rules) and set up camp to await the mail delivery today. And there he came. And went. I know his route means he's coming back to the neighbors across the street, so I wait a few minutes and ask him.

He was nice enough to give me a direct number to the local station. I called and was told, "It's on the truck. Should be there today." So we went around a bit and the man came back to say it was awiting my signature at the station.

The good news is two-fold: That experience didn't take even 1/2 as long as I expected. Nobody goes to the post office anymore. And second, The i7 3.6Ghz processor is swinging away in my desktop where it replaced a fully-capable i5. The i5 will find a home in my NAS build.

So, hopefully you'll get some relief without too much effort as well. Good things *can* happen!

Wait to use isn't as bad as waiting to see if its fixed by replacing this

The air bags could be cracked or worse but I have no way of knowing till I replace the module.

Drinking rum and diet is probably contributing as well. But, thanks all for the thoughts/condolences.



Actually, perhaps I should edit that first post and start another thread? Though even in that would be sort of off topic in the e53 area. I'm rambling...


Nooooooo not critical about it at all. The sad face was for the pup.

Fingers crossed for you Crowz that the delays aren't bad. From the evening news you would think it's the next ice age upon us. And thanks for your understanding, I agree with you about organic conversation in online forum interaction... but not everyone does.

Thanks all for the well wishes regarding the pooch. We got a nice hand-written card today from the vet hospital we took him to which was nice and I'm going to write a review for them as that was unexpected. Upset the wife a little though as it freshened up the would again. But it was still a nice bit of unexpected thoughtfulness.

Well I tried the module and forgot to take pictures of the holes I drilled. Sorry about that.

Pump came on when plugged in and did its whole routine. Dash light went out so no air suspension warning.


Then after about a minute it turned off and the warning light came back. But it was doing what it was supposed to do. Since there was air hissing out of the passenger side airbag

So now its either get a bag or do the swap to non air. I want to see it work right once before I disable it.

So Im off to watch vids on swapping the bags then I need to find some cheap bags.

Was the hissing coming from the bag or lines?
