    Is your car a 2004 e500? If so, the ride control is a hydraulic system, not an air system . I have found problems with the accumulator leaking as well as the pressure lines. This is not a trivial repair. Have a qualified shop who knows this Mercedes ride system inspect your car and then recommend what repairs are needed.
