Ok, so all summer my car sits lovely, doesn’t move overnight, but as soon as the wet or cold weather comes my front right drops overnight, It’s been doing this since I bought it, ive changed the valve block for my spare, sprayed the bag all over, it’s just weird that it only happens with damp or cold weather.
I have a 4 pin relay so not the self levelling.
Any thoughts welcomed

Change the bags. For 100 notes it isn't worth risking burning out the pump.

A method I have used to verify if it is the bag leaking, is to put a temporary manual valve in the airline to the bag. Blow it up, valve it off and leave it overnight.
If it still drops, it must be something else ...... probably the solenoid valve leaking. Get a cheap plastic ball valve with 6mm connections on Ebay.

I know that,, BUT why is it only when damp or cold it does it, all summer it will sit for weeks before dropping, ive sat it on different heights as well, so I’m pretty sure the bag is good, it doesn’t look too old, although this year EAS is getting overhauled completely,,

Solenoid makes more sense, it’s been a while since I’ve had a valve block apart, must grab the spare and have a look

So it gets even stranger, past week I’ve had the battery disconnected, and low and behold, hasn’t dropped a mm in height,, I’m now wondering if the sudden battery drain I’ve got is doing something to the valve block,, scratches my head,, 🤬😤
