OK I'm new to all this VCDS stuff so go easy on me pls.

I've changed the piston ring in the compressor and replaced the front right air spring but......in the process the ride height calibration is now all over the place.

Tried the suspension recalibration process - followed the video - but when I go to do the adaptation after login (program crashes sometimes) I get an error along the lines of control channel not found? soz I don't recall the exact message.

Anyway I can 'see' the individual spring heights under measured blocks and I can run the step test program although the lowering steps doesn't appear to be doing much.

Many thanks for looking.

I've also got a 2015 A6 C7 BiTurbo .... seem to have a bit of a soft spot for the Allroad 😁

Here are the scan files.

Is the large discrepancy between the rear heights real?

Hi Uwe many thanks for looking, I am measuring (top of rim to underside of arch trim) a real difference of 25mm between the rears.

Currently with car at level 2 I have rim to trim distances as follows.

FL 160 FR 170

RL 180 RR 205

Had another go at the suspension calibration, got to commence a read of channel 01 but before a value was displayed I got the 'channel not available error' I was receiving yesterday.

Also a couple of new error codes one of which I could not erase.





Here are the scans.

Eh Noobie Question, Do I need to delete the old logs to get the correct date stamp on todays logs??

I am measuring (top of rim to underside of arch trim) a real difference of 25mm between the rears.
OK, then the readings you previously posted are plausible.

But why are you measuring from "top of rim"? You're supposed to measure from the axle centerline, like this:

It's "six of one and half a dozen of the other" as we say over here in the UK.
Thought this technique works well.....

I place the end of my tape measure on the top edge of the wheel rim and note the distance to the highest point on the fender arch edge. For example, if the distance from the wheel rim to the fender is 160 mm, I add that number to the radius of the wheel rim (235 mm) and get a height of 395 mm. It is the 395 mm which would be programmed in the "402 Mod" to get the car back to the standard specs.

Whats your take on the 'Adaptation channel not available' error message?

Well, the values you need to enter into the Adaptation channels in order to calibrate the suspension must be measured in the manner I described. Measuring them that way would also tell us how far out of whack things actually are.

Whats your take on the 'Adaptation channel not available' error message?
Not sure. That's the module itself refusing for some reason.

OK by way of a wrap-up, I left the car for a couple of days and then went back for another go at the suspension calibration.

Wasn't expecting much but my perseverance payed off as this time when I went to read the channel values instead of the previous error message channel not available the module returned a value and I was able to read all 4 channels ( and the 5th ) and enter the miscalibrated actual measured values.

So job done, went for a test drive, rescanned and got a clean scan of the level control channel.

Happy days 👍
