Vehicles with semi-active air suspension or Airmatic have several issues to be concerned with. Compressor failure is often attributed to increased air demand due to leaks or from a faulty relay causing the compressor to run on and overpressure.
Leaks are common at the front Airmatic struts on the W220 chassis S-class. A repair kit is available to retrofit these struts and repair the leak without strut removal. Although less common, for other leaks the strut must be replaced. A new strut is always the best solution but aftermarket remanufactured OE air struts are available in many cases at half the cost of new units.
