Rear Suspension stuck up high. Level Faul Workshop

When I first got my 06 GT a few months back, I replaced all the air shocks and the air compressor. I then installed the adjustable lowering links. About a week after put the lowering links on, the rear suspension raised up and has been stuck there since. My buddy said when I would raise/lower that one side rear would move, but the other would not. I replaced that side level sensor, but still having the same issue. Now both rear stay up high and will not move. The front raises/lowers as it should. Any ideas?

You man need to use Ross Tech (or the likes) and calibrate your suspension. I did my fronts and now it looks like Iím driving a dune buggy. When I try to calibrate the suspension, I get a error code.


When I try to calibrate mines, it gets hung on on the last wheel with an invalid error message and I canít go to Channel 5 to finish. Now Iím stuck with a workshop fault but it still drives.




Where did you get your sensors from? Iím going to change mines in hopes that it helps my situation.

Hadn't heard of 'lowering links' before. Don't most peeps just recode the VCDS to lower the suspension?

Wondering if the change to the suspension geometry has faked out the sensors?

Sorry I don't recall. It was from one of the big German parts places. But you can also source via VW dealers - here's one I found. Price is about what I paid from the warehouse place.

The part #'s are different left and right:

https://parts.autobarnvwcountryside....E0616571E.html

https://parts.autobarnvwcountryside....E0616572E.html

You may want to take a look under the car and see if the arm is physically broken. That's where mine failed.

As a caveat, I'm assuming the Phaeton and Bentley parts are the same. I don't know for sure.
