Here's a current number which replaces a whole lot of other numbers:If that isn't the cd cartridge it looks d..d close. I can have a look for a part number for you tomorrow.
Do you have a code scanner?Yay me... After sitting the garage all day/night, the car is sagging on the front driver's corner. Appears to level out properly when I hit the raise button. ;-) & ;-(
Will take it to my local Benz guy and see what is what.
I've never even tried that button on mine.... not driving in the rain, LOLThanks all. I’m about to pull the trigger.
Carfax is superb, inclusive of MB service up to recent.
Extended test drive went well.
The only thing I found is that after testing the headlight washer button, it started draining washer fluid. They are discounting $750 for the replacement pump and labor.
The left side view mirror is discolored to the point where it’s difficult to see through, anyone know if that’s a fairly simple job?

I do not... maybe that should be a purchase sooner than later!Do you have a code scanner?
Thanks, my local shop is recommending both a new valve block and strut. Can an old strut contribute to the sagging? (Car has 83K miles)Yay me... After sitting the garage all day/night, the car is sagging on the front driver's corner. Appears to level out properly when I hit the raise button.
You have an internal leak in the front valve block in the ABC hydraulic system. It's like the lock on a hydraulic floor jack, when you turn the handle to lock it in position. As everything ages, fluid leaks back to the tank.
You can rebuild it for low cost. Search 'ABC valve block repair' to learn more.
Actually the ABC 1 block with discrete valves is the one discontinued (2203200358). It is replaced with a new style with twin, non-removable valves (2203201258). This valve block is only for ABC 1. The ABC 2 blocks have a single wire plug to each solenoid block, pressure sensors for each strut, and an o-ring plug type line mounting.Only the first generation ABC 1 valve blocks are obsolete. You can buy new ABC 2 valve blocks from MB and fit them to ABC 1 cars. Cost will be the only issue.
