Customer Question

Seriously upset 😕 my ***** *****ght has been on for a couple of weeks, I've not driven everyday until Monday when I went back to work after illness. Car is/was booked in for Monday.
So, typically, on the way home, the red light comes on & the suspension falls flat (at the back) I stick to 30mph or lower & stop at next available point. Back tyre is flat again (had a prev puncture repair 3 weeks ago)
Am I going to need to remortgage to fix it? It's had one owner before me, I don't drive it hard, get 28 to the gallon & I love it, or I did. Now feeling very sad &!

Ok normally on these the suspension compressor is the cause .the compressor has to be replaced with an updated part and the vehicle software updated to prevent further issues this is a common failiure

What sort of price is this?
Is there anyway I can tell? Eg can I ask to see the diagnostic?
I imagine I'll need it towing now too! Argh!!!

Sorry, is there just one compressor? Or one on all wheels?
Forearmed is forewarned after all...

Just one compressor .There will be a code listed in car with the description pump resevoir filling too slowly .you will need to have car plugged in to confirm .from memory its around £800 but you need to mank sure an amk compressor is fitted and software is updated otherwise you will have further issues down the line
