Limited space, got one of those a facom brand. Did manage to get it in and broke it on the bolt. This car fights me on everything. Found a blade for hard metals to fit a multitool so going to fetch that in a few minutes. Don't know if it will go inbetween the chassis and bracket, but will try anything at the moment. 55 plate

United Kingdom 2005 Range Rover Sport TDV6 HSE Arctic Frost

Rebuild complete and it's worse
Compressor is nice and quiet, runs for the correct amount of time, but the front goes up slow and i get the slow to rise message.
Rebuild went really well and their isn't any leaks as ii can find. No fault codes, but i have read the live data and the gallery pressure was 706Kpa, but was dropping while i was watching down to 437Kpa, so it seems to me there may be a leak i can't find, but why is it worse now than it was before.
All ideas appreciated. 55 plate

I got the vehicle raising in progress message after changing my compressor too. Turns out pressing the button a few times makes it very slow. Give it a while to fill the gallery with pressure and then try raising it again.

I left the car idling on access mode until the compressor shut off (couple of minutes) then tried again, still the same. Back goes up but the front is slow, and the slow to raise message. 55 plate

Leave it in off road height over night and see if you get any corners dropping that should eliminate any leaks on the bags, if thats ok then you might have a blockage or partial blockage some where.

Could try cleaning and servicing the valve blocks. They sometimes get a bit sticky.

You most likely have an internal leak via the exhaust valve - might be cracked open allowing air out via the exhaust port - that should have been replaced as part of the rebuild.

Have you cleaned the main valve block? 07MY RRS TDV6

Is that the one on the dryer,? as i replaced that cap with an aluminium one. I had the full kit from 8xr. The dessicant in my dryer was white and a lot of powder in there as well, so i thought i had found my problem. Everything seemed to go well, i took my time and everything went back in as it came out, plus new seals.
And no i haven't cleaned any of the valve blocks, thats got to be my next job, but the weather outlook here for the next week is rain, and i am working on the drive. 55 plate

No it is the exhaust valve that allows the air out of the system - it is a pressure relief valve so is normally closed and as air needs to be exhausted the pressure pushes the seal open against spring pressure and the air leaves the back of the compressor.

In my compressor, some of the crud was stopping this valve seal so as the aircompressor was running a lot of the air was escaping through the valve. In my case tapping the compressor moved the obstruction so all was good.

On another aspect - I hope you put the aluminum desiccant chamber cap on - if not you may also have a leak with the old plastic one.

jumped in the car today and suspension worked perfect almost all day. Then it started playing up again, so definately a sticky valve somewhere 55 plate

You need to get the suspension codes read and take things from there. 07MY RRS TDV6

there's no codes, no lights bongs nothing. Just the suspension slow to rise message. Sometimes it's fine other times the front is slow to rise with the message, even if the compressor has run and shut off. 55 plate

So you have put a code reader on the OBD2 port and got no codes. If you are getting a slow to rise message then you most likely it is not the compressor as it would through up a code - if there are no codes you have a small leak in your system - will most be related to the tank.

If you had a compressor issue you would get the fault code "C1A20 pressure increases too slow when filling reservoir" as minimum. 07MY RRS TDV6

Yes i have a hawkeye code reader for the sport and no codes. Sometimes it acts normal other times not. I have left the suspension up for 2 days and nothing drops so the struts are ok. Had wondered about the tank, but sometimes i can go to it when it has been sitting for a couple of days and it goes straight up to normal height. That's why i originally ruled out the tank, as there was obviously enough air stored in the system to inflate it. I have checked around the tank with soapy water and can't see anything, but as you know the top where they usually go is inaccessible on the car. Will have another look when the weather is better. 55 plate
