Hello

If you're getting a 'too low' message then there's a fault with the air suspension

if the car is sat down on its bump stops then this would back the error message up

the next step would be to plug the car into a MB diagnostic tool such as STAR this can communicate with the car and pull off the stored fault code

usually to get a low suspension fault there's a leaking airbag or a faulty compressor or a sticking valve block but getting the code will point to the fault and save a lot of time & money

if you try and raise the car on the ride height switch you may hear if 1 corner is hissing air
