Does DRC leak on the floor?

Post by robster » Thu Feb 07, 2019 10:11 pm

Picking up my RS4 next week, anyone got a guide on checking the DRC? Will leaks be obvious or do I need to get underneath the car to check the shocks and the steel pipes?

Cheers fellas, if system sealed what should the pressure read if I ask them to test it? Car from main dealer so they should have the equipment

23 PSI I was told. Guess around that mark is reasonable.

You are all wrong.

It’s Bar, not PSI 18-22 is the range.

Cheers guys
20 bar is quite a lot pressure, hope nothing fails catastrophic
