Hi
Hydraulics on suspension of my CL55 (2002) is playing up. Left rear went down . Rebooted everthing in the hope that it would reset,but when I tried it both left rear and left front are down now! No fluid leaks. Any ideas? Accumulators etc? No point in buying parts until I find out exactly whats gone. Also anyone know where I can buy a coil spring conversion in uk?
Any help apprecated

Thread from the “other side forum “
 
Have car take the "Rodeo"-test. This will exercise the ABC-system and it is initiated and perfomed using the Xentry system.
In the beginning, many service stations replaced valvs that had been "frozen" but after realizing that a valve could be accidentally stuck
the rodeo test was introduced and many problems could be resolved without expenceive repairs.

During this test, data is gathered that will indicate any component failure. Also readings of pump pressure, etc. will be recorded.

And if not done so recently - Change the ABC oil as well as the filter in the oil container. An oil change is (or was) not part
of A- or B- service but the oil will rot with time. A fresh ABC-oil is clear green. When it rots, it changes into a grayish color
and becomes more or less "waterish".
 
Does it pump back up when you raise the suspension? How long does it take to go down?
 
Could be so many things.

Best get the codes read and see what turns up. But, very unlikely for 2 things to go wrong at the same time...so looking for a single cause.
 
Yellowspeeds….ABC light on - just get rid off, pandora’s box. Had s55, nearly lost my mind on it, one thing after the other.
If it wasn’t well maintained it will be your worst nightmare.
