Have you read the thread below - question by Chris Peddle on Xantia suspension which sounds exactly same as yours - some useful replies there?

Hi,
My problem is similar in that intermediate is the same as maximum (either going up from normal, or down from max.) but no-one I have spoken to can suggest a remedy for this. It means that the intermediate setting can't be used as the suspension is solid, making it too bouncy bouncy for my liking!.
After changing the accumulator (knackered if the pump ticks - when raising rear particularly) and anti-sink spheres, the speed of movement (upwards) was much better on my car so it may be worth checking these out? I think the condition of the LHM and return filters can affect the up/down speed as well. Anyone else any comments on this? All depends on the miles/age of car.
Hopefully this is some help, Chris

Today the car went back to the dealer who found that the rear height adjuster fitted by them in February was not set up correctly and was 60 mm's out. Car now back to it's old self.Thanks for the replies. Mike.
