Which also usually means the air compressor is worn out.
The cost is around $300 for parts to replace...
The compressor can be pretty easily changed by jacking the LF of the car way up or putting it on a hoist for access to the small air suspension air compressor...
BUT you need to fix the air leaks or the compressor will fail again from overwork...
If you love the car, buy some shocks with overload springs to replace the airshocks....
Your lines could have a breach and don't hold the air pressure or the air bags could be ruptured. The rupture on every e class without warning. This can be caused by a mere pot hole or speed bump.

Insurance will cover the failure under either comprehensive or collision as a pot hole or speed bump caused it. Bad design as US full of both, however try to claim under road hazard thus comprehensive and lowest deductible
