What does an air spring do?
The air springs are part of your Mercedes R350s suspension system. It makes up one of the key components of the air suspension system. This system requires an air pump or compressor to make it operational. The air pump creates air pressure, which then causes reinforced rubber bellows to expand, and creates space between the car's axle and the chassis, essentially lifting the chassis to the correct height for normal operating of the vehicle. There is a self-leveler to keep the car level from side to side, as well as the air spring that raises and lowers the vehicle. The air suspension system in your R350 has the important task of providing you with a smooth ride, especially when you are going over bumps in the roadway, by keeping the car stable and improve braking capacity and handling. Having good air springs also means that the tires and the entire suspension system will receive less wear and tear over the long haul, and ultimately also helps to improve your car's gas mileage.
What are some Mercedes R350 air suspension problems that can occur?
As with any used vehicle, over time and miles comes wear and tear to various parts and systems. With the air suspension system, parts can become worn out if they get rusty from repeated exposure to moisture, or the rubber portions of the parts can dry out and become worn. Driving the car can cause debris from the road to puncture the air bag, or air lines can succumb to abrasion and get Mercedes R350 air suspension leaks in them. The compressor may also go out if there are leaks in other parts of the system
