I have a 2006 ML500 and the ADS Suspension is losing pressure and dumping both front and rear overnight. would bad rear airbags do that?

Asked by Mar 29, 2017 at 10:45 PM about the 2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML 500 4MATIC

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had the rear bags replaced 2 years ago and the shop that replaced them told me they're under warranty so they will be replaced at no cost to me.  But would rear air bags dump front and rear.  The same place is now telling me that I need to replace the front struts...opinion?

Yep (if indeed is a problem with them) if you don't want to damage the compressor. And yes again, a problem with the rear, would lower the whole car. Or, could go 'classic' replace with no air-ride, but this is a bit tricky. One of your struts (air ride) should cost about 1000$ right? It's a pity, because they are really nice cars, but quite expensive...
