Jacking up vehicle w/ air suspension


Recommended Posts

Wonder if anyone knows if jacking up one corner of Cayenne GTS without turning off air suspension would adversely affect vehicle somehow. I had nail in RR with slow leak. Tire shop I took it to used hand jack on that corner. After it was jacked up I noticed that wheel slowly drop another inch or so as the air released in the suspension. Everything was done ok. When it was lowered back down it seemed to be fine after I switched rocker to normal position again. Drove it home and it seems fine. I don't know if turning off air suspension first is just so wheel doesn't drop further OR if not doing so messes something up.

 

Thanks  :unsure:

You are supposed to put the system in "service mode" before jacking it up.  Should be in the owners manual.

You are correct, it is. I realized I should have disabled it after it was already jacked up, and other than that wheel dropping a little more the vehicle luckily never moved. I won't make that oversight again. wall.gif

Other than the vehicle trying to level itself and subsequently falling off jack and maybe injuring someone, there appears to be no adverse affect on vehicle. I drove it again today and it's as superb as ever.

Thanks for the reply.
