MY 2008 GL450 has an intermittent aromatic issue. Sometimes the rear will lower itself on both sides to an low-rider position. It doesn't do it all the time in fact it will stay at a normal position for days.

Mechanic's Assistant: What model is your '08 Mercedes?

GL450

Mechanic's Assistant: Huh?

I suspect the leveling sensor

Mechanic's Assistant: Nice car. The Mercedes Mechanic can help you with your ''08 Mercedes. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Within reason

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you ready to speak with the Mercedes Mechanic now?

Sure

Hello, my name is***** and i will do my best to assist you.

sensors are almost never the cause. usually its the rear air bags. or a failed valve block or compressor. the best test is to spray down the valve block with water and soap after shutting down to see if there are any bubbles. are you good with cars?
