It had a bunch of codes, cleared them all but the only ones that keep coming back are these two, when I activate them they all start to rise. Compressor I think is not 100% functional cause it says it reached its time limit of 1 minute, so either there is a leak to the front right or compressor is weak. Hard to diagnose. Tested compressor and it showed 7 bars when it should have been 14. So not sure. The car airs 90% correct, the front right is a bit lower, but I drove it 40 miles and it was okay.

You are right about the leak in the right front, this happens when the airbag starts to leak, which is common, I would do both fronts. Here are instructions in the diagrams below on how to do the job. To confirm the issue, you can try a spray bottle with a soap solution but that is about 1/2 effective. Check out the diagrams (below). Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.

Replaced strut and compressor since they were not too high and all fixed.
