Re: The usual P38 problem - air suspension!
Done a bit more investigation, and I can definitely hear a leak
from the front o/s, but I'm sure this has been here a while and
is not the cause of the EAS fault.
After reading around I think it is probably an electrical connection
or height sensor.
Local LR Main Dealer absolutely useless, I am due to go away tomorrow
for a while, and just wanted a quick diag. to see if it was anything
serious, they refused to plug it into their equipment unless I booked
it in for a whole day.
I don't have the 35MPH message, so as far as I understand it is
a less serious fault than it could be!
Anyone further help would be appreciated on which connections
(and where!) I can check / refit.
