Came across this today and thought i'd post as it maybe useful to someone else.
Too much moisture in the compressor could well be why I had issues back in the winter of 2018, when my suspension system failed and the car was recovered, not knowing what had failed.
Mine turned out to be a fuse, and I posted the following comment in the topic at the time.
"The suspension failed due to the compressor blowing a fuse. They can find nothing wrong with the function, no faults logged. So there is only a suggested reason for failure. Was possibly frozen when I started the car, the compressor load was too high and blew the fuse. But it is only guesswork.
Yes it is a logical answer, but was not the coldest day up here, although it was below 0C over night on Tuesday/Wednesday".
I'll have to be more aware if it happens again, whether it is a rare occurrence to freeze up, or more to do with just too much moisture in the drier. Does pose the question, why? Humid air, like my situation on many days? Or picking up water some way? Will have to look to see how protected the air intake is.
Thanks for posting Kev.
