the old elantras and accents have problems with the struts siezing up; especially if the vehicle has been lifted/jacked recently.
i see at least a few elantras/accents at the shop every week with locked up struts, its very very common. i am a hyundai tech, so trust me i see this a lot.
to replace the struts you will need a spring compressor and common hand tools.
check the front struts as well, they all tend to go around the same time, push down on one corner of the car at a time, if the car does not come back up after you release pressure, the strut has siezed/locked up.
DO NOT attempt to replace the struts if you dont have a spring compressor...that spring can really mess your day up if you dont properly compress it before removing that top nut.

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
