Hello,
just got the car 4 days ago.
2007 q7 4.2
the main problem is.....
Front Driver wheel airbag is lower than the rest when left overnight.... Im going to say this is a leak.
I did have a code that said "air leak detected in system" 9or something along those lines) i was in the proccess of lowering the car 464 Front / 490 Rear.
so i accidentally deleted the code :/
i dont remember the code stating that a specific bag was leaking.

Questions is ...

-How can i find the leak with Vag com is theirs a way.
-How to find the leak manually. i was thinking of spraying glass cleaner and look around but i know its a slow leak so idk if it would work.
-can the leak only be in the bag or hoses and fittings.? im hoping somebody that knows Q7's could lead me in the right path.

VCDS can only tell you what the car knows, and I don't think the car has any way of knowing where the leak is. ;)
