Is this a car with a ELC Electronic Level Control. Or do you have something like a air valve that you filled with a air compressor?

Just to clear things up, the original poster is my father. Its an ELC from what I understand. Pushed the button to inflate but doesn't know how to deflate it or even if its necessary. The car is new to myself as well as I haven't had a chance to see it yet to assist. Please help if you can. Not filled with an external air compressor.

The ELC will change the pressure it'* self. No need to let the pressure out.

Thanks for your help. I have ordered an owner'* manual, so I will be able to understand more about it .

This is my first Bonneville, and love it.The previous owner had it oiled every year, so he told me. There is not a mark or a bit of rust on it, and is in beautiful shape for a 1998 with 177 thousand km on it.
Thanks again for your help
