Hi all, if I do not use my C6 for a couple of days the suspension height drops.

Being a new C6 owner I wanted to know if this is a normal 'characteristic'?

Photo included.

When it is this low the rear tyres are just touching the inner wheel arch.

No, the C6 should be "no-sink" when parked. A small internal leak somewhere ? But if it's not a problem and gets up for driving fast, maybe nothing to use money on.

As Tjensen says it should stay at ride height when switched off. The front may drop very slightly and lift when unlocked but it's a very small movement.

Hmm, there are rear rubber end stops. They are visible when the wheels are taken off - are they still there?

Hello Xantiaboy,

The rear firmness regulator may be slowly leaking back to the reservoir tank. If you search the forum you'll find posts on this. Not an immediate problem once you remember to let it rise before you move off.

Best regards,

Phil C.

Hi, update on my C6 sinking.
The problem seems to be intermittent. I can drive the car fine, but when parked overnight it usually sinks as per picture above.
If I then unlock the car, which triggers the pump to activate, the car will rise and stay up for days.
Anyone had this? Or any ideas on what would cause this scenario?
Thanks
