Last month my red triangle would pop up along with the yellow head light symbol. Most times it would be for a few seconds, other times it would stay on for a few minutes. Today I rotated my tires and I thought I would check out leveling sensor while the tires were off. I took my left rear tire off and this is what I saw when the sensor was removed. So everything looked normal to me. Looks can be deceiving. I've seen pictures on here of leveling sensors where the guts are completely rotted out. That's what I was thinking I was going to see. Here is a picture of the bolt side of the sensor: Again, it looked normal to me. If you don't know what you're looking for, especially if parts aren't mangled, it can look normal. So I took the four screws off of the sensor and this is what I saw: The inside of the sensor was in pristine condition! The springs are shiny gold and there was only a small amount of dust inside the sensor. I started to think about how the sensor works and I figured out that the sensor must move in some way. Hmmm. But there was no bracket on it to turn the sensor. Hmmmm. But it's a potentiometer, it must move! I tried to turn the shaft and it would not move. I looked more in detail at the bolt side of the sensor and realized that there was part of a broken bracket on the bolt. I went back to the area where the sensor is mounted to take a closer look. Ah-ha! Now I understand what happened. Here you can see the broken leveling bracket: Ok, so at this point I figured out that the shaft seized somehow and it broke the leveling bracket. This led to a more detailed investigation of the sensor and why I'm unable to turn the shaft. With the bolt and broken bracket removed (and some cleaning), I was able to see what happened. The seal failed! I took it out and it's clear that after the seal failed it let water penetrate into the shaft, which caused a lot of rust. Here is a picture with the seal removed: You can see there is a lot of crap there. That also means there's hidden rust in places that we can't see. I removed all of the visible rust and here is a picture of the debris (with the shiny like-new spring): Here is a picture of the busted seal and part of the leveling bracket. I also took a picture of the seal part number: And finally, what's left of the leveling bracket: So here's where I'm at now. This sensor is pretty damn expensive! Used sensors on E-bay at listed for more than $250. I'm not much of a mechanic due to a career in electronics. I sprayed white lithium grease into the sensor a bunch of times. I would work the sensor back and forth, use Q-tips to remove the lithium grease and debris and then repeat. It's definitely easier to move than before but having previously worked on a leveling system for transportation vehicles, it still seems there is too much friction. A new or used sensor isn't an option right now so here are my questions: 1. Would something like WD-40 be a better option to try and revive the shaft back to like-new condition? Is there something better I can use? 2. An internet search for BE3177F (the seal part number) reveals nothing. Providing I can get the shaft to move freely again, not having a good seal in there will only create more problems in the future. Does anyone have another option I can use for a seal? For now I just pointed the lights lower so they don't blind other drivers.
