Hi it over time it has become worse my EAS is taking ages to go into any heigh setting once it gets there there are no problems about lowering and when I leave it over night it holds its height.Im thinking the compressor is not putting out enough air is there a set of seals or gaskets I can change to improve the output of the device. One other thing I changed the inlet filter over the weekend but it did nothing.

If it is your compressor,then get a compressor rebuild kit from Rover renovations.(shupack) :thumb:

But your compressor will probably have worn out due to excessive use due to a leak.Remember there is a air storage tank under the vehicle and when the eas is raising the air comes from the storage tank,so if it is not holding pressure then the pump will have to compensate for this. :think:

My thinking is that there is not enough air in the storage tank or it is taking ages for pressure to build up.Will get one of those rebuild kits and work from there thanks for the quick reply

Check for air leaks first, soapy water in a squirty bottle is you best friend when it comes to hunting down air leaks.

Compressor head o ring will require changing but I just had my reed valve go on my larger compressor
As you are in dusty Namibia I would also carry out the air filter mod, works really well, pics on my blog will give you more info

Hi yes in dusty Nam i did see the mod on you blog might try it out but I did recently change the filter with no change. Im planning on checking for leak on saturday will also open up the compressor and check the seals.

I have a piston seal in the garage (if I can find it) - I never got to fit it as the Allen key head broke in the crank screw and I can't get it out.

If you need it then it may be quicker to post up from here and we can work something out once you get home?

Is this with the EAS timer removed or not?

A compressor fault will not cause the front to drop. You need to find why it is dropping. Remove the EAS relay/timer under the seat and leave overnight. If it still drops you have a leak. If this isn't sorted you will just destroy any new or repaired compressor.

but a dead compressor will stop the front from coming back up. Since it's not sucking in at the filter, it's not working right.
