You may have any or all of the problems I mentioned in response to your first post on Airmatic problems. Others have written up information on DIY changes, including the need for a special tool, its cost and where to get it, the part numbers and cost of the upper seals, the location and cost of the Airmatic relay, and replacement of the Airmatic pump. Also, if one front strut seal has a leak, the other won't be far behind; and you may (or may not) need adjustment of the ride height sensors using STAR diagnostics after the parts are replaced. That's why I suggested you use the search tool a bit in response to your first post.

If you don't want to have the car towed and seen by a qualified technician as I suggested, then I again suggest you use the search tool on this forum, and on MBWorld. I don't have all of it bookmarked. When you do your search, don't forget the "similar threads" portion that appears at the bottom of the page.

When did the British start issuing a Driver's License and allow a Baboon to register and plate a W220?
