Reset Airmatic suspension? Car sitting lower on 1 side because of tire puncture

Got a nail in my tire - patched - sitting lower on that side

Hey all, there was a screw stuck in my rear passenger tire. found it yesterday.. raised the car up and put it on spare. by this morning the spare had lost a lotta air and car was sitting low on it all night.
so today got the tire patched and re-balanced from a shop. after raising car and installing new tire again, it seems the car is sitting lower on that side and higher on the other side. i drove it back and forth a few times. couldn't feel any vibrations or noises coming from tires or anywhere. its just that that side is sitting lower and im afraid it might screw up air suspension if im driving and i hit a pot hole or some crap?

can someone guide me on how I can reset the airmatic suspension?
thanks in advance!

It really should be scanned for a problem like a level sensor.
The only other thing I can think of would be that that the rear air spring on that side
gave out during the tire episode, but I doubt that. If it did the compressor would be running a lot.
How much lower is it than the other side?

i made sure not to drive the car on the spare or flat. only took it into and out of the garage to change to and from the spare.
the car is sitting about 2-4cm lower on the side that had the spare on it.
i tried driving it in sport 2 mode to see if it lowers at high speeds as it should. didn't notice a difference. i left it alone over night and am hoping the car automatically lowers it self as it usually does when u unlock the doors or lock them in some cases. im afraid of driving the car at this point... any suggestions? is there a hard reset for suspension? or software reset? im sure benz dealership will charge me a fortune if i go there to show them.
