It's a complex system. You need to find a good MB specialty shop and let them to leak test it and run a computer diagnostic on it. It could be a simple thing as a leaking hose, but it can be a control unit also.
Based on the results they can give you an estimate.

This happened to my E500 last year. I had it towed to RBM and I had to have a strut replaced at a cost of a little over $1300.00.
