Is Your Suspension Failing?
How do I know if my 2006-2013 Mercedes R350 Air Suspension is failing?If the 2006-2013 Mercedes-Benz R350 is unable to reach and maintain the proper ride height, it may have a failed or leaking air suspension system. Early detection of a bad suspension is critical to avoiding total failure, so look for these common symptoms in the R350 before it's too late. Any sudden height variance between different sides of the R350 is a red flag. Look for one sagging end, one inflated end, a squatting down appearance, or a shifting lean from one side to the other. If these imbalances are not fixed promptly, the air compressor will wear out. Once the air compressor has stopped working, a suspension warning light will illuminate on the dash. At this point, suspension failure is advanced. The longer one waits to repair the R350's suspension, the more expensive the solution will be.
What kind of suspension does my 2006-2013 Mercedes R350 have?
2006-2013 Mercedes Benz R350 Electronic Shocks (x2)- shocks whose dampening capabilities are controlled by the suspension control module.
2006-2013 Mercedes Benz R350 Air Springs (x2)- commonly referred to as air bags, a plastic and rubber bag that is fitted on top of the strut that uses pressurized air as a cushion instead of a metal coil spring to hold a vehicle off of the ground and off of its wheels. These are the number one cause of all air suspension leaks. All air springs all go bad at about the same rate. If one is leaking, the others will not be far behind. For a proper repair, all of them need to be replaced at the same time.
2006-2013 Mercedes Benz R350 Height Sensors (x2)- a linkage located near each wheel of a vehicle with any electronic suspension that, either mechanically or electronically, constantly measures the height of the vehicle, and reports this information back to the control module so that the computer can identify if changes in height need to be adjusted accordingly. The ride height sensor is a moving part, and like all moving parts, they will eventually wear out.
2006-2013 Mercedes Benz R350 Air Lines- tubes that run from a compressor to the air springs, which carry pressurized air to the air bags.
2006-2013 Mercedes Benz R350 Solenoids (x2)- 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.
2006-2013 Mercedes Benz R350 Compressor Assembly- creates/sends pressurized air to active suspension components. When the air suspension starts leaking, the compressor/pump starts working harder to try to keep the system inflated. By the time air suspension leaks down completely, sitting the vehicle on its tires, the compressor will either have failed or be well on its way to full failure. Buying replacement struts and taking the time to install them only to find out the compressor still needs to be replaced can be very frustrating, time-consuming, and expensive.
2006-2013 Mercedes Benz R350 Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.
2006-2013 Mercedes Benz R350 O-rings- although they are the least expensive parts of the air suspension, they are responsible for maintaining the seal where all of the air lines connect. Be sure to replace the O-rings when repairing any air suspension system.
