    Hi.
    Just joined the site.
    I have a e320 cdi estate and the rear suspension is bouncy. The car is a year 2000 model.
    Does any one have any ideas.
    Thanks

    No need to bleed, it is a recirculating system, so will self bleed.

    So I will need to change oil as it is dirty and bolt off and on. Is that right.

    Thanks guys.
    It just say central hydrolic oil.
    So I take it that I can take the old spheres off, drain the system and refill.
    Is that right.
