Default had same issues. my boot strap solution

if u r under warranty take to dealer.

if you are big on budget replace struts, compressor, maybe valve block, maybe some other hoses. $10,000 here in Canada

OR.

1- put car in 'jack mode' from MMI.
2- safely jack listing tire and remove tire.
3- visually inspect strut rubber bladder. 90% of bladder failure happen at bottom seal.

now try to determine if you have a tear or hole.

take a jack and lightly lift the suspension to simulate the car being on ground at all 4 points.

grab a bottle of 50/50 soap and water.

take care out of jack mode and try to lift/or pressurize the air shocks.

spray the shock really well all over especially underneath.

if you see bubbles then you got punctures or leaks.

now you decide to replace or repair.

lots out here on how to do that.
