Default Forcing ELC to vent out....

my level sensor is dead, and yesterday i unplugged the valve in the trunk to force the rear to go up after i oiled the piston (so some of the oil would make it back into the shock boots) well now that its up, i plugged it back in, expecting it to vent out and go back down. well since my level sensor is shot, is there a way i can force it to vent out excess air? my rear end it about 3 inchs too high...... and it looks rediculous...

thanks,
devon

Pull the connector off the selector valve in the trunk, and deflate the rear struts by depressing the schrader valve on the inflator until you achieve the ride height you want.

Hmm, if you did that, hooked the hose up, ran it into the cabin, put a valve on the end of the hose, and left the compressor on, you coul raise and lower the back from the driver seat...
