E70 rear level sensor bracket help

hi don't know if right section but just done a rear suspension bag replacement after error code on dash, all went good but my bag only inflates to 700 cm when it should be 736cm for 20 in wheels, ive got no error code now but it still is low on new bag, i've gone under to have a look at the level control sensor and the side that is low, the bracket that comes off the sensor to the nipple is curved but the other side is straight is this correct.

Those infamously get rusty and stop bending at the elbow. I think you need a couple new bars. Look them up on realoem.com and buy from Fcpeuro

It's called a regulating rod and there are two sizes listed for e70 : 71.5 and 80.4. Figure out which you have and order one for each side.

Nope there is one part number. There is another word for the curved one: "broken".

You could take that one out and heat with hot air gun and straighten if it's thermoplastic. Also pull apart the rusty ball joint and clean it out. It's almost 100% chance the ball joint rusted and stopped moving causing the bar to get bent.

I recently did rear suspention work and both of mine had completely rusted ball joints which I refurbished by pulling apart and spinning in a drill over wire brush then packing with grease.
