Re: Sound Clip of Air Suspension "discharge" -- Is this normal?

Yep, that's normal. My Touareg and Cayenne, both with air suspension made a similar sound. It's the valve closing on the nitrogen storage tank. Remember, it's under a lot of pressure. If you listen closely you get a similar sound from a compressor when the fill valve closes and you have more than 100lbs of pressure. I've only heard it a couple times on the road and that was when the radio was off and the windows were closed. It happens when it drops to aero height then when it raises as you slow down but it shouldn't cycle. That would indicate a you might have a leak and it's having to adjust height more than normal.

Re: Sound Clip of Air Suspension "discharge" -- Is this normal?

I was also wondering if the noise made by my air suspension is normal, and now thanks to everyone's comments know it is. Mine makes the same noises as the sound clip, can only be heard while inside the vehicle and mostly comes from the back. Regarding the member who said his system continues to make adjustment noises while driving at highway speed, maybe you are hearing the system adjust to aerodynamic mode.

I get the same noise while I'm driving. I too hear more by the back seat area, and until I read this thread thought it was coming from the back door speakers like there was an issue w/ head unit not being able to connect. It's the suspension?
