No. The levelling valve leak is usually an indication that there is wear in the hydraulic system elsewhere. Probably in the suspension cylinders. They supply too much hydraulic fluid on the return system when they get worn and as all connections are push fit on the return side leaks will show up at the weakest point.
The valve itself only moves 2mm max and not really a servicable unit.
How is the rest of the suspension? Do you have the electro hydraulic system with the larger pipes feeding the spheres? Some unscrupulous people neglect to replace or recharge the two centre spheres because they are difficult to access and this increases pressure on the whole system.
Replacing the valve is not a big job. But please be aware there are serious pressures involved and could result in injury. Also the set-up procedure has to be carried out on a 4 post ramp with Citroen tools.
Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Good advice and useful information I was not aware of. Cheers"
not that i know off ,if its not coming on then you have two choices --connect airbag light to the oil light switch and hope the vehicle inspection man doesnt know this dodge,fit a heater glow plug unit under and connect light via this to bring light on and then make it go out without starting engine because they are getting wise to the oil light trick at the vehicle inspection.Or take it to the dealers ----normal cost at dealers is about 2000euros .If i have one failed at vehicle inspection then i have to have a certificate from dealers that airbags have been changed .More often than not the glow plug relay one will pass providing that i have checked the vehicle first ,because if they see it first?? then it will not pass without the certificate

the fuel filter should be on the fronnt right of the head (black canister with 4 allan key bolts on top) or front center of the head(oval unit)
it is possable that the fuel pump has gone down or the fuel cut off switch has been activated this is located on the n/s/f inner wing on the top strut mount
