Report: Active Body Control System Can Leak Hydraulic Fluid
Mercedes-Benz S55 AMG Problem
Average Mileage: 95,735 mi (10,900 mi - 145,000 mi)
The active body control system can leak fluid from numerous areas, including the tandem pump, hydraulic lines, struts, and/or seals. If it is not repaired, the vehicle ride height could drop too low and cause damage to the undercarriage.

Need new ABC pump.
I had a power steering fluid seal go bad and the garage that worked on it put power steering fluid in the ABC fluid housing which made the ABC system suck up the power sterring fluid and it caused the whole ABC system to go bad. mercedes fixed it, but it was $3000 to flush the system and buy a new pump.
starting to notice regular ABC visit workshop messages. I keep my eyes on the Hydraulic fluid levels to ensure that the system doesn't run dry. Now car won't raise or lower, also noticing continuous drip underneath the car. Seems to be occuring in the front, near pulley but can't tell due to the frame. I can see fluid dripping from the bottom of what looks like the tandem pump, but could be coming from a high pressure hose connected to it, can't tell. Starting to prepare for a huge repair bill.

I had the ABC pump replaced twice as well as some of the hoses and the ABC notification continues to come on whenever the suspension rocks. Mercedes should do a recall on this system. My auto shop told me recently (the same shop that replaced it twice) I need to replace my ABC pump. Does this ever end?
