Morning all,

SWMBO has reported that on the local test drives that as the car is rising when the bags pressurise it's now feeling a bit jerky and making clunking noises (front and rear) as it goes up and down. I get her to put it up to full and down on the bumps at least twice a week.
Prior to my EAS saga caused by tightening a leaking oil cooler nut (other posts) and swapping out a leaking ROS airbag it was silky smooth with no noises.

Any ideas please? My thoughts (wet finger in the wind) is bushes but this is a new challenge from Rommel this time!

cheers all!

By heck, we get around, don't we?

Is there a correlation between P38 ownership and wanderlust?

The clunking could be the height sensors, bushes are a possibility, remember it’s 20 yr old car, going to have some odd sounds,
Must admit, as long as mine rises to height I don’t pay much attention to any sounds it makes, will have a listen tomorrow morning if it’s down at all.

Ok thanks mate. We might just be over sensitive due to having done the work recently hahaha

Both mine and Gordons made a bit of a thud when lowering down sometimes, like it's getting hung up on something then gives. Must be a very tiny hang up though as it doesn't physically jump much when it goes. Would be nice to figure out what it is.

Mine does it too, almost as if something sticks slightly then gives. It's always done it, never got any better or worse, hasn't changed after replacing air springs or shocks and is just the same after 7 years and 153,000 miles.
