You need to have the fault codes read out before anything can be diagnosed.

Good question, I would have explained before but many people understand the fault code system. Your car has many computers that control different aspects of the car. In this case the Airmatic is in question.

For MB we use Star diagnostic system or SDS for short. When SDS is connected to the 16 pin socket inside the car we can run a fault code scan and this will check all computers and modules and post up a list of fault codes.

One the components on the Airmatic system is failing or failed on your car and a code for this will now be set on the Airmatic computer (control unit). Armed with this code we can then go directly to the suspect faulty unit and run further tests.

Both the dealers and specialist workshops have SDS and for a one off price will run a fault code scan and give you a copy of the print out.Post that copy here on Benzworld and we can then help you to find the problem.

I do not know the price of the pump but before you spend lots of money on a pump read all about the faulty Hella relays;

Start of problems and strut diagrams post 15 Air-matic failed !! - MBWorld.org Forums - Hella relay at post 18 (Relay goes in slot “O”)

Make sure they change the relay as well, sticking relay is often the cause of a bad pump.
