Here is a diagram to help you locate relay. If that doesn't work I'd manually power on pump to make sure it works. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have any questions, thanks.

I start car cold take off in hose and its blowing air , so my guess its working. no noise runs quiet ? but I have the error code for pump and cant get inspection sticker here in Ma
Mercedes Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 25 days ago

It should blow about as hard as a hair dryer so if it is blowing weak that could be problem Fact it is blowing at all means relay is working, what code are you getting?

This usually means weak air pump or the Air Injection Reaction Diverter (AIRD) Valve​ is not working. So I'd check to see if pump seems to be blowing as hard as a hair dryer if so then replace the reaction diverter valve, also make sure to check the vacuum line going to the valve. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

On cold start the AIRD should be getting enough vacuum to open. If no vacuum or weak vacuum then problem is likely a leaking hose or switchover valve which allows vacuum to go from engine to the diverter valve.
