I try to use everything occasionally just to make sure it's still working and to keep it freed up.

Which would you rather do? Take to a garage for them to tell you it's gunged up and broken through lack of use? Or take it to a garage who tell you it's worn out? Might as well have the use of all your toys Smile Robin

Hi,

Turn off "Auto". It turns climate into a conventional heater , stops using the compressor and reduces the engine load.

Sure I read somewhere that you are best selecting access height before you come to a complete stop to preserve tyres and suspension, as there is some side ways pressure on the wheels as the car drops. Nanocom Evo

I have got into the habit of pressing the down arrow as I slow down to park. That way, the car is pretty much lowered before or just a little after I switch off the engine. I do like the idea though of having a menu set option that is your prefered parking height Idea

I also lower my D4 when I have parked. This, together with gathering my wallet, keys, etc., lets the turbo cool down a bit before I switch off. Thumbs Up --

Yes it is less stressful on the handbrake, gearbox parking claw etc. etc.

I may be going mad but having stopped the car and forgotten to lower to access height for the dog, when I press the lower button with the ignition on ( engine not running ). The car actually rises.

Starting the engine thereafter, and selecting access height - the car lowers as expected.

Very different from our D4.

Has anybody else noticed this?

2015 RRS.

Post updated 1/7/19
Had a series of suspension faults / IEB braking not avaiable.

LR Assist attended and diagnosed inability of gallery to vent on compressor. A small sintered bronze silencer on the compressor was blocked. It was replaced with a modified one with a hole drilled in the centre.

The car now lowers rather than rises going into access mode. I was not going mad after all! ---

I am a newbie, but I believe the LR button on the key can be coded to several features - one of which can be to lower the suspension to access height, or to raise it. Once you have ‘coded’ the button, you then press and hold the LR button and lock button to raise, or LR button and unlock button to lower.

As I am new to my 2008 RRS TDV8, I have just read the manual cover to cover - page 38 if you’re interested Thumbs Up



Cheers,

TC.

I believe there is a button under the steering column which does this if it either pressed or not ...can’t remember which N
