what is the part number for the starter motor in a mercedes benz s500 1997
I have a 2002 S500, [132K miles]the Air Matic has been acting up for months. Particularly when it is cold [below 30] the car would lower all the way around. As soon as the car turned on it would elevate to proper level. Next observation was that I would hear hissing every time I turned car off. Finally the air compressor would not click in and the Red, Stop Car,Air Matic light comes on...and of course the car is lowered all the way around, the rear lower than front....I think it is the compressor pump but reading the other posts and viewing You Tube videos a variety of fixes appear....such as
1.) Replace Air Pump Air-Matic pump (p/n 2113200304)
2.) Check for leak in connection hose/replace hose with new style hydraulic hose...says don't use old hose,it leaks.
3.) Check 40 amp fuse/relay (fuse 32) if replace relay (p/n 2542131)
4.) It may be the S500 AIR MATIC SUSPENSION RIDE CONTROL MODULE, if so replace it.
5.) Also all of the struts appear to be fine.I don't think any of them need o be replaced. [How do I verify this assumption?]
6.) I replaced the Air Matic two and half years ago at an approximate cost of $1,750 at MB dealer.
7.) My desire is to get it fixed for a lot less then the $1,750...example: last month, the local Firestone shop repaired the crank shift sensor for about $100 total...the dealer wanted $600...
8.) If I know what to tell the Firestone repair shop what to look for they can fix it for about 75% less. They have done multiple repairs on my S500 that the dealer would have charge 3 to 5 times more.
SUMMATION: In what order should I check for problems with the Air-Matic; can you give me a probability from first to last what I should check, i.e. most likely cause of issue, problem first, then second most likely problem, and so on.
Who ever answers this, I sincerely appreciate your advice, response and the time you took to help me out.

My car is lower to the ground and it sometimes scrapes the ground.

WHEN EVER I HIT A BUMP I HEAR SQUEEKING NOISE AND A KNOCKING SOUND BY THE RIGHT WHEEL
I start the car, no problem, when I stop at a light or in traffic and then I step on the gas it stalls or hesitates. Then the check engine light comes on, I go to mechanic and computer show a #104, we change the air flow sensor, two days later same thing happens, go back to mechanic computer shows #104, again... HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! don't know what to do.
I was doing a google search to look for a problem with the auxiliary fan motor and came across your website, it had highlighted the search I was looking for but couldn't find it. Just wanted to see if this was a problem Mercedes would fix or if I have to do it on my own
Please note that your model listings do not contain S350 so I have had to list as an S500 to submit. Mercedes have looked at the car and could find nothing. They suggested it might be engine mounts. The noise and vibration goes once the car warms up. It's a W220 chassis, last Australian delivery of the pre 2005 model and has done 40000 kilometres.
