So, escape from the MF and go Claas, surely can’t be a bad move. Assured by the vendor all was good and been checked over by a recognised company pre sale as he wanted it sold in full working order.
Hmm, what a mug I was, hooked header on, get to the field, switch auto contour on, header drops and goes full tilt to the left 🤬

Been in the book, scrolling through Cebis but can find no way of manually levelling the header. HELP 😕

The 2 on the right of the pic aren’t fully on their chains as the left side
Don’t matter what you do with them, still the same, the springs need replacing underneath by the looks of it as they don’t have enough in them to power back and a spring holder was broken, but fixed that now

There used to be a switch to tilt it over manually as well, but a long time since I've had a claas you might also need to drop the header off and resycn the rams turn the tap on the bottom left pump both rams to the top, then close tap and put one side right down, put header on and off you go. But I think its just because your sensor is jammed on the left hand side, give it a kick and make sure it isn't jamming again. Cou,d be a bit be t to one side and jamming on a bolt when the header is right on the ground.

Should have enough weight in them to drop to the end of the chains without springs. Could try learning header heights but without those sensors drooping down I think you'll struggle.

Does it manually level with the switch on the back of the joystick? As above I’d learn the end stops to start with. It does tell you how to do it in the book.
