Thanks for pointing me in the right direction

Update: So i removed the splash gard & found the copressor and pump. I then unpuged the wires to find a bit of corrosion build up. I gave the conections a clean & put it back together.

It seems the preasure sensor was coroded stuck and wasent telling the relay to switch on. I guess thats to expected for a 12 year old car.

I dont understand why MB put an electric motor where its bound to get wet...

Thanks again Eric
