How Do I know If My SL500 Air Suspension is failing?

Look for the following signs that indicate a failed or leaking air suspension system on the 2002-2012 Mercedes-Benz SL500. Early detection of a bad suspension is the key to avoiding total failure. The most noticeable sign is a sudden uneven height difference between different sides of the SL500. A sagging rear end with an inflated front end is typically seen. This makes the SL500 look like it's “squatting down.” Sometimes there is a shifting lean from one side to the other. These height imbalances will wear out the air compressor over time. In fact, if the air compressor has already stopped running, a suspension warning light will be visible on the dash. At this point, suspension failure is advanced. The SL500 owner will need an expensive repair immediately.

Suspension Components List

The 2002-2012 Mercedes SL500 is built with the following suspension components:  2002-2012 Mercedes SL500 Hydraulic/Air Springs (x4)- (models with air suspension only). These "air bags" are made of plastic and rubber and fit on top of the strut. They use air under pressure to cushion the ride and suspend the vehicle off the ground instead of a metal coil spring. These components are by far the most likely cause of an air suspension leak. These need to all be replaced in order to repair the vehicle properly. If your SL500 has hydraulic springs/struts, then it is filled with hydraulic fluid instead of air to adjust the height and dampening of the vehicle.  2002-2012 Mercedes SL500 Hydraulic Reservoirs (x4)- (models with hydraulic active suspension). If your model of Mercedes-Benz has this, then the steering pump also sends hydraulic fluid to the other suspension components.  2002-2012 Mercedes SL500 Struts (x4)- This is a metal tube that connects the wheel of the vehicle to the frame. it is filled with a gas-charged hydraulic fluid that allows it to soften the impact of vertical travel along rough or uneven road surfaces. The air spring, which is assembled on top of the strut, is commonly referred to as an air strut.  2002-2012 Mercedes SL500 Height Sensors (x4)- Located next to each wheel of the SL500, these connections are constantly observing the ride height of the vehicle and sending that information to the suspension control module.  2002-2012 Mercedes SL500 Air/Hydraulic Lines- These tubes, which run from the compressor to the air struts (or in the case of hydraulic suspensions, from the hydraulic pump to the struts) carry air or fluids to the struts to adjust the height of each wheel of the vehicle.  2002-2012 Mercedes SL500 Solenoids (x4)- usually L-shaped, these plastic components connect the electrical connection and lines of suspension components to the suspension control module on vehicles with active suspension. The solenoid regulates the air pressure for each air spring. Solenoids start to leak as they wear out causing the vehicle to sag or to lean. This will cause the ride height sensor to send a signal to activate the compressor in an attempt to inflate the air suspension and level out the vehicle. This excessive work load will eventually lead to total failure of the compressor.  2002-2012 Mercedes SL500 Compressor Assembly- (models with air suspension only). This compressor generates pressurized air and pushes it out to the suspension components. Once the suspension parts start to leak, the compressor will attempt to compensate and run constantly. This will cause it to wear out very prematurely and fail quickly. It is one of the most costly and time-consuming components of the suspension to repair or replace. 2002-2012 Mercedes SL500 Hydraulic Pump- if your Mercedes has hydraulic suspension instead of air suspension, then the hydraulic steering pump will also serve as the reservoir for the hydraulic fluid that goes into the struts.  2002-2012 Mercedes SL500 Suspension Control Module- This is a small computer that maintains all the functions of the active suspension system, including the ride height.  2002-2012 Mercedes SL500 O-rings- These o-rings maintain the seal where the air lines connect and should be replaced whenever the suspension system is repaired.
