Default Air suspension deflating

Hello guys, this is my first post. I tried to search for this problem but found nothing.

I have an Audi A6 2005 3.0TDI with around 130.000km on the meter. Drives real smooth and I love it. But sometimes kinda randomly when I park it for more than 4hours the air suspension deflates. Only at the left rear wheel. Than when I start the car I have to wait for the green air suspension light to turn off(it turns of when it has finished pumping the air back).

My first thought is that the bag might be leaking. Does that mean I have to replace it or can it be fixed?

I live in Iceland and the official Audi dealer here sells parts for way too much so I might want to order online myself and have and indy mechanic install it.

spray it with a bottle of soapy water and look for the bubbles

Okey so the left rear bag is defiantly leaking.

Can you guys recommend any aftermarket bags for replacement?
