Could check if you hear noise when you change the height. Like an air noise passing through a pump and also a stumping noise? It very important

I can hear it if I don't have the music on or windows down. I like to hear it, though.. because i know it's working, especially every once in a while you hear it auto-leveling the suspension.

I just got it back from the dealer, and they did alignment work, so I am afraid that the lift the car without deactivating the auto-leveling, and the QL got messed up. It makes more noise than before. I could only hear the noise at Of road level 2 at the end of the run, but now it seems that it is at all levels (Park, normal, level 1 and level 2)

Also the front air dam is damaged( out of place) and the brake pedal goes all the way down (spongy). I am afraid of being paranoid, but I do not think it was like that. I checked the brake fluid level and it is at max.

I really do not have item to take this car back and forth to the dealer. I got a new car cause I didn't want to deal with issues.

I'd be a little concerned about techs working on a WK2 with QL until they break enough of them to learn to disable the QL system when putting them on the lift.

If the engine is off, like it would be to do an alignment or other suspension work, isn't QL already disabled...?

Hi so I made a quick video with the iphone. I had to increase the audio so you can hear the pump or what ever it is.

From sec 20. you hear the end of Off road level 2, then you hear it deflate to level 1, and then back to normal.

TO me this does not sound normal. Could you confirm that you have this sound with your QL

video at the following link:

mine sounds like that too.. just not as loud. If you want, I can record what mine sounds like with my iPhone, just to compare.

I processed the video and increased the audio, so as to hear the sound. So in it is not that loud. But inside the vehicle you can definitely hear it. It was not as loud before, it it as only doing it at Level 2, at the end of the run. Now I can hear also the air flowing and I guess the valve is lauder.

It would be nice if you can record it and compare.

My engine was quieter the first 100 miles. Then I noticed the V8 really started to sound like one. I think everything has a break in and will get louder over time. From the video it doesn't sound like it is any louder than it should be.

Alignment work already?

Here is the sound clip I took with my iPhone sitting on top of the center armrest. Figure I'd give you the raw footage so you can enhance the sound like you did with your video just to keep things consistent.

I processed your feed using the same settings, but the sound coming from yours is less noticeable. I was pointing the camera at the lower right back sit from the arm rest. It may be that you are pointing the camera differently.

Nevertheless, I think mine is louder.

I do not want to even bring it back to the dealer because I am afraid they are going to screw up something else.
