Last Friday I inanvertantly accidently on purpose rescued/bought a 300SEL 3.5.
Anyway since this is the first air suspention car I've ever owned (I also own a 280S and a 280SE 3.5), I have a couple of questions on the operation of the system. I spent last night reading all the posts in the forum regarding the suspention on these cars.
The car was purchased in Albury and after waking her up from a 8 year slumber on Monday, I promtly drove her back to Melbourne (with back up) a total distance of 318klm or 197 miles.
Other than the near new looking tyres all having flat spots from sitting around causing the car to vibrate I felt the suspention to be very wollowy, even at 60mph that I was travelling at for the duration.
With the car safely back at home I was going through the various dials and knobs till I got to the height control knob at the kick panel, I pulled it all the way out (I felt the indents) and I waited for the car to raise up to it's highest point with the engine running, and nothing happened, I checked all the positions and there was no change, the front drops down over two days, not the rear and when the car is started the front comes up, there is no change in the rear height.
I am slowly going through the car, but any ideas and help would be great to get me started on the right path.
