Default 2001 allroad air ride question

Hey guys, my name is Adam and I run a Hotrod and Kustom shop in WV. Don't normally find myself working on Audi's, but a friend of my fiance with very limited finances has a 01 Allroad with an air ride problem and can't afford to take it to the dealer so i am trying to fix it for her as just a favor. She said the drivers front would leak off slowly for a while and then she had a flat tire at the same corner. She had it taken to a tire shop and all was fine. When she picked it up the front suspension was completely flat and the rear completely up. Compressor comes on and runs, but absolutely nothing happens up front either side. Is there any sort of proportioning valve that separates the front system from the back? also, why would the rear be in the up most position at all times. The manual controls on the dash do nothing either, can't even raise or lower the rear with them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. She's a great lady and I'd really like to get her on the road as soon as possible.

She has an air leak in the front and probably burned out the compressor
The cheapest way to fix is go to buyautoparts.com she can get the compressor and both front air bags for about $950.00 total the dealer is more than double this
