Put the suspension on high, jack it up a bit more (one jack on the front crossmember just in front of the radiator, the other one under the towbar) and put your blocks in, starting with the highest. Release the jacks, then poke the rocker on the dash for access height. so it drops down and sits on the blocks. Open the door to inhibit it. Go to the Heights tab in the software and click, Get Sensor Heights, make a note of the readings for each corner. Go to the Calibrate tab, click Read All and you'll see two sets of numbers. Top ones are what it is programmed to now and the bottom set of numbers will show the same numbers. Change the bottom set to what you have just noted down and click Write. If you then click on Read All again, you'll see that the top set, the programmed heights, will have changed to what you have just input in the bottom set.

Jack up, take your blocks out, fit the next set (Standard) and do the same thing for each height setting. You can only change one height at a time, you can't amend more than one set of numbers and then Write the whole lot. The software will try to always put the car back to standard height so make sure it is sitting on the blocks and the door is open before reading the existing heights.

How much did you have to alter the heights by, quite a bit I would think. When you come to do the access height, the blocks are about flush with the end of the bumpstops. No problem putting them in but a pain to get them out again. I drilled a hole in the end and tapped it with an M6 thread so I can screw a bolt in to pull them out with.

So now you can either do the motorway and access heights or clean your idle air valve......

The heights were all over the shop, every corner was a different height, i entered new numbers how you said to do them and it levelled up

I nicked my granddads broom handle, he swears it is a good bit shorter now lol " nah it's fine" came my reply!!

The IACV was an odd one, i noticed the throttle cable was looser than a manchester lass, i gave the pedal a hefty prod and it tightened back up.

idle is back to normal..

hmm.
