    driver side front strut doesn't lift, even though i replaced the strut itself (arnott continental) , valve block has been fully changed, but it wont lift up that side only. i changed the leveling sensor as well but i think it wasnt working properly, hmm maybe it could be the sensor , BUT i...

    The car has been sitting since 2017/2018 after it went into limp mode and the indie shop I was taking it to quoted $1,200 for a module then told me well because of the age and mileage(174,000mi) what you really need is to rebuild the transmission for $5,700. I had to park it and get something...

    Hello all, just got my 2008 gl450 out of the shop for diagnostic. They said my Arnot air suspension compressor was not working and sounded shredded as if metal was rattling inside. I just had it replaced in September. A little background info: it is missing the right finder liner and the car is...

    So I bought a 2008 mercedes s550 3 months ago, car was riding fine and leveled, I may have noticed the right front passenger side sit a tiny pinch low but no problems when driving and the car was smooth, I kept getting a yellow malfunction message with an arrow pointing up after driving a few...

    Hello! As I am a new owner of a S500 (pre-facelift) 4matic with a M273, I have no clue about anything about them, so I have some questions for anyone who might maybe know :). The car is on its way so I decided to do some research. First question is how the hell do I get an aux into this car...

    My car has a fairly lightly used arnott strut i found at the junkyard. Also has a valve block , height sensor, and a compressor, all from the junkyard. My front driver strut somehow always goes low, the stut holds air but always goes down no matter how much air i put in it manually (from a hose...

    Hello from France, I acquired this Mercedes W220 320 CDI from an old man my father knew, it had been asleep for over a year and I could not take care of it as I was not financially independent. I have now been able to make some money and I would really like to give it back its magnificence...

    Replaced front strut (passenger) and was working fine after. Reset the light and calibrated it (left to right technique) . The thing is , i made sure both the wheel speed sensor and the strut line were both plugged in correctly, and they were (done in December 7th, 2021) today is December 22 and...

    According to the Wiki, the last step is: "Unscrew bolts (86d) on retaining plate (86a) and remove front left and right level sensors (B22/8, B22/9)" That's it. Unscrew bolts. How? A socket won't fit because the bolt is too close to the pivot. I got the outboard one out with an open-end wrench...

    Hi all, My first post on this forum but I think I'm here to stay. I own a 2007 face-lift w211 320cdi with the Airmatic suspension system and I love it. Both the right front and rear struts were refurbished less than a year ago. There are 2 issues: 1. The rear dips equally on both sides...

    Hi all, I just acquired my grandmother's s430 and I am going over it repairing/finding issues. In this process I noticed that the instructions for the valve block repair on the wiki had some questionable o ring specs attached. Airmatic - W220 S-Class Encyclopedia Notably, the pressure sensor and...

    Hey all, I bought a nice looking 2002 a few months ago, and I'm now having issues with the Airmatic suspension as I go to sell it. It seems to be able to sit for one night with no problems, doesn't even go down a little, but if it sits for 2 or more days it will eventually collapse. It seems to...

    Hello all, I know airmatic has been beat to absolute death on all Mercedes forums but I'll make it quick. I have a 2000 S500 with 150k miles and I recently replaced a leaking strut in the driver side front. After replacing, the car stays up for roughly 20 hours until it completely bottoms out...

    Hey I have a w220 s430 4 Matic. The mechanic replaced the back right strut for $800 I did the left one for $200 plus some tools. But I think my fronts are going out and was wondering if anyone knew if the drivetrain mattered for the strut. Or if I have to buy a strut that is for 4matic only...

    Good day all, I was going to take a test drive (2000 S500) after just fixing limp mode via the ESM but when I started the car it was very resistant to raising. I thought this had been maybe because it sat completely bottomed out for 2 weeks and it just having rained maybe would've had it acting...

    Hi all, first-time poster here. The dealership told me I needed a new cable harness / connector for the ride height sensor on my car. I bought an OEM part but it doesn't come with any of the wiring pins inside! Does anyone know how to get these? Are they a standard size I can find at Autozone...

    Hi guys. Yesterday, I jacked up my 2007 S 550 4 matic for the first time. I was going to paint the calipers. I jacked the car up on the drivers side. Everything went well, until I took the car out today and I got an “Airmatic Malfunction” code with the picture of the ride height indicator. The...

    Hello everyone, I have a '01 S400 cdi and I'm encountering an issue I can't fix myself. I've always had draining battery problem since I got the car, so one day I decided to take apart the left front SAM box (K40) to clean it and inspect it for oxidation marks. After reassembling it, the...
