    VW Touareg - Air suspension Creaks

    My 2007 Treg has Air Suspension - which squeaks and creaks.
    Can this be sorted out by using a light lubricant?
    Or is this a sign of a bigger issue?

    Recently acquired a 2007 3.0 tdi touareg. I notice that the air inlet to the air filter box is below the RHS headlight.
    Is this why there are a number of posts on Drowned Touaregs?
    Anyone...
