|Change temperature for the below data. This function is based on Rover's recommended figure of 0.6mm per 1°C.|
Trim height is measured from the centre of the wheel straight up to the wheelarch. Tyre pressures should be correct, the vehicle should be parked on a level surface, unladen but with a full petrol tank, and spare wheel in its correct storage position. The vehicle should not have been driven for at least two hours. Put the steering straight ahead and the handbrake off, bounce the car a few times, allow it to settle and then roll the car forward about a metre. Bounce the front of the car, allow it to settle, then measure the trim heights. They should be within the specifications above, and One side should not be any more than 10mm different to the other side.
Valves are located on each side of the rear subframe and can be accessed just in front of each rear wheel.
