My 96 mk 8 had been sitting on its from in my drive for near 2 years . Last year I bought all new arnott air parts intending to rebuild the air ride. However I could not find A WAY TO LIFT UP THE CAR ENOUGH INCHES TO GET A 3 INCH jACK FOR A START TO RAISE IT UP. ONE OF THE GUYS HERE SAID TRY A 2"X3" BOARD . THAT SOUNDED promising as the end of the board can be tapered allowing me to drive the rear wheels up onto the board. Plan to have same in front of the front wheels . Provided I get it up my next question is. What steps are necessary to reach the air compressor. The front bumper has to come off to reach the rt front corner of the MK 8 thus allowing axcess to the compressor. The compressor will not run with the key in on position. I have a super star 2 tester. Suggestions appreciated expecially disassembly of the front bumper cover and removing the compressor.
