That sucks as you just rebuilt it, no? Was it installer error during the rebuild? Fingers crossed you can find a compressor for a decent price.

Yes, literally not even a week ago. I can‘t say, when it comes to my car I always check every screw 5 times before I put it all back together, but I‘m not going to claim I couldn‘t have missed something. It just makes no sense to me how the screw could have broken off like that.

Oh well, I think I would‘ve bought a whole new compressor anyway, as even after the rebuild it wasn‘t exactly silent. Found one for 350€, like the original, which I am fairly satisfied with, should arrive sometime by the end of next week. So air suspension on pause till then!

Update:

New compressor arrived today! Was a very quick swap, had it up and running within an hour. Sounds like this might have been the issue all along, I am getting a higher pressure than before and so far my front is holding, I’ll see in the morning *knock on wood*

Now only thing I’m trying to figure out, one side is 2cm higher than the other, despite INPA showing them as the same height. Would this indicate something is wrong with my height sensor? Or how can I reset this?

Great! Glad you found the issue. There is a calibration procedure but be careful messing with it. My truck is now sitting on the tires at all 4 corners after trying height adjustments.

Oh man, sorry to hear, still no resolution to that?
