2001 S500 Airmatic mystery
Here's my airmatic mystery and what I've done. After the car sits the right rear lowers as low as it can go, the left rear not as much but still the wheel is about an inch from the wheel well. The left front is noticeably high and the right front is about normal.
The pump works well and raises the car. The car level is about normal when the car is started, but the rear struts are a little low as compared to the front. Front struts checked out ok and their connection point to the air tube too.
Replaced the rear shocks 2 weeks ago. Checked for leaks with the soap in the water bottle trick. Looks good. Checked for leaks before removing pump-valve block last weekend. Normal with no cracks, corrosion, etc. Replaced a cracked vacuum hose that connects the pump to the round vent thingy. The air tubes connected to the valve block just fine (10mm wrench).
I will check the front hight sensors tomorrow. Running out of things to check. Help.
