A sticking relay, causing the airmatic pump motor to constantly run, may causee the airmatic pump motor to fail or the battery to go dead when the car is shut off. Worn airmatic pump mount bushings can causes noises in the front axle while driving on bumpy roads or a buzzing noise.

Turned the car off, pump motor continued operating for about 15 minutes. Made a loud buzzing sound and then an intermittent buzzing sound. Just happened last night so haven't had a solution yet.

ride height fine - eveb a bit high but compressor runs anyway even after shut off - I am replacing the entire system with manual springs and struts - screw them - its cheaper than constant repairs

my car currently in shop for malfunction to the airmatic system... not sure exactly what's wrong yet. my paddle shifters failed at 36k miles. I love the car but i don't think i'll buy another MB. These cars are very nice but not very reliable and for the 80k that my cls costed, i think it's crazy. I'm going to try my luck with a lexus i do believe they are much more reliable and less maintence
