Air leak

I am new to RRS and have just noticed that after not using the car for 3-4 days it has dropped down to access height from on road height, when I start the engine it goes back up again, there are no warning lights on the dash, do I have an air leak, I still have 6 months RAC warranty

Perfectly normal, so long as it goes up evenly again. Always best to lower it to access height to preserve battery life if leaving the car for more than a couple of hours - lowering puts all the electrics into “sleep” mode rather than keeping them in “standby” mode looking for your key fob. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV on order for April delivery, bye bye Land Rover after 21 years and 11 LR products..... all because you won’t give me reassurance that should my SDv6 crankshaft break because of a design fault, not MY fault, but the engine builders fault - it will be replaced for free.

As you've got a warranty get it fixed, you have got an air leak (ok it's a minor one, but air leaks only get worse..) the car technically shouldn't go down if left for year, but to put it into context, my 06 sport can be left for 2 weeks and not drop.

It could be a cheap fix and just need a pipe tightening or it could be something more expensive like a leaking air bag or valve block.

You've got a warranty, use it Thumbs Up

or the seals in the values could need cleaning/replacing. (£17 on ebay)

You can remove a 20A fuse from under the bonnet before you leave it parked up. (this will stop it self leveling)
If one corner/end is down when you come back to it, it can give clues as to where the problem is.

Worth be worth doing before you let a garage f**k it up
