Where is the ALC exhaust valve?

I got sick of looking at my jacked up rear end today, so I took out the schreider valve in the trunk again, and it setted instantly to the correcy height. I really think it is just the exhaust valve not letting out any pressure.

It appears to be part of the pump assembly. Should be on the right rear side of the vehicle.

acck! thats gonna be messy with all the snow/slush we got yesterday.

The removed schreider valve is going to have to suffice for now.

Yup. Unfortunately there aren't any good clear diagrams in the FSM. There are cautions everywhere about cleaning dirt from surrounding areas before taking anything apart. Definitely something you want to do in a more controlled environment.

This caution is also noted throughout the procedures anytime all the pressure is released. I don't know if it'* possible to damage these shocks without residual pressure or not. Thought I'd pass it along though.

Important
Before driving the vehicle, turn the ignition on and wait approximately 45 seconds. This will permit the ELC system to execute the air replenishment cycle (ARC), ensuring that the air adjustable shock absorbers are filled with residual pressure.

the release solenoid/valve is part of the compresor head.
