Hello serge. There are a few different valves in the system. Can you give me the part number of the valve they told you ? Or a picture ? Or I can upload some pictures and you can tell me which valve they told you. Also what is the problem with the car ? I am very good with suspension issues. I'll check back later. Lou

Hello Lou,I do not know wich valve, but the problem appear one or two months after my extended guarantee ended.
.
The mecanical guy told me, at that time, that the valve can be filled with some dirt and he change all the fluid and after done the rodeo with the car. That do not resolve the problem, and I continue to use the car and time to time a white warning appear on the dash board. Yesterday, the system stop working and the read warning appear and stay. I tried to change the level of the car, but up or down did not worked.I hope that can help you to determine witch valve is faulty,Thank you for your attention (and excuse my bad english).Serg

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Unfortunatly no, but He told me, at that time, that the valve is expensive.
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

ok Serge. it will be very difficult for me to tell you any more info without knowing the codes. i can always give you all the information, but it will not help if we do not know what the codes are. does the level of the car stay normal? or does the car drop?
