    Now that you established a "fixed itself" while commuting is to now establish your commuting vehicle ride height first then remove the compressor fuse or disconnect the compressor at its connector then repeat your commuting trip. I bet these suspension bags will have collapsed during your commute vs the compressor keeping up with the leak while driving. A false "fixed itself" wish.
    In my neck of the woods talking to several LR Disco owners over the years most of them got tired of throwing good money at air bags by installing steel spring suspensions, problem solved. There must be a reason why steel spring replacement kits have been available, ya think?....~~=o&o>.....

    I personally like the air suspension, and I also wasn't just "wishing" for a fix... my different conclusion came from it not leaking while it was sitting (for days) while in the raised position. That and after my longer trip, it started remaining inflated even during standard setting. So not sure how ya think the compressor is keeping up with a leak when it's not running.

    Rally3 did offer a good example on how/why it may be the case though.

    Reread what I typed in reply #11 of disconnecting power to the compressor "then repeat your commuting trip" was my reply.
    I never mentioned "compressor is keeping up with a leak when its not running". those are your reply words. I gave you a simple (free) test instruction, if you can not or will not follow an advice reply your on your own like paying for a dealership's diagnostic fee (ouch), replacement parts (markup ouch) plus add their hourly labor fee which all adds up in keeping your friendly LR dealership rolling your in money.

    As one LR service writer (tech) friend always told me when I happened to stop and chat,
    "this a lifetime job i'll retire at LR knowing i'll always have a job do to LR's excessive failures requiring expensive repairs". .....~~=o&o>......
