    Default What is this?

    While looking under my 2021 RTL to see if it came with the belt idler (which it does) I noticed this disconnected. Does anyone know what this is in the picture?

    Ride height adjuster lever....should be connected to lower control arm.
    Picture not super clear....is there a bolt in the nutsert on the lower control arm....if so....attach.
    It controls air bag for ride height.

    Yea, the red oval needs to be thicker to see it well. That's what I thought it was but I didn't know the right name for it. There is no bolt in the nutsert on the lower control arm. I don't think it was ever attached.

    If you have a BASIC RT it may Not have auto ride control ( my basic 14 RT didn't ) ....without Auto Ride Control it has no function .....jmho .... Mike

    It is an RT Limited. I will put a bolt in it. It's not worth the hassle to take it back to the dealer for this.

    Was it left out or fell off??

    I heard of dealers not installing those bolts.

    Are you bottoming out??

    I'd guess it was left out. I only have 50 miles on it. Not sure if that is something that is installed at the dealer or at the factory. I haven't felt it bottom out but haven't been on rough roads.

    Call the dealer and have them send you one for free. JMO

    After putting a bolt in the linkage and starting it up I could hear the compressor release air every now and then. It will be interesting to see if it rides any different.
