Hi I replaced r/f airbag amd all was well. 3 hours later the left side dropped way lower than the right side. When I started the car it said auto susp inactive. Bmw dealer told me to release pressure in r side by loosening air line to even it out and sys should restart, it diddent so my question is there any way to get sys back on line so I can inflate it to find the keak other than going to bmw, akk I need is to get compressor started, all fuses and relays are good

Try disconnecting the battery and reconnect after 30 minutes or so, restart the car. Let me know what happens

First of all, the rule of thumb is to replace air springs in pairs. Keep in mind that a coil conversion kit can be had for $600-$700 and you'd be done with air suspension forever.
