98 v230 Ambiente Faults HELP!

I finally got my own 230 this weekend after much deliberation, but has a couple of flaws i need help with:
1) I have no user manual and wish to know what the 4th from left warning light pertains to? Is this the auto gearbox, brakes or suspension?
2a) Does the air suspension commonly kick in and pump up as often as every 5 minutes?
2b) Is it unusual for the compressor to kick in and rise the rear when you turn off the ignition and close the doors?
3) The autogearbox occasionally sticks in( I presume) 2nd and takes 4500rpm to release into the next gear, is this on its way out?
4) Rarely under braking it makes a noise on the front nearside and feels like a spring pushing the brake pedal back up, is this related to question 1?
5) Does anyone know where i can download a user manual so i can view the meaning of lights on the dashboard panel or is this an expensive Merceds purchase?

Thanks in anticipation for any answers
