2004 Mercedes Benz E500 4Matic Sedan
AIRmatic help!

Hello!! I'm new the Benz family, just purchased a 2004 E500 4Matic. The car was sitting very low when I first purchased it. Changed the airmatic relay (S) near the engine and car rose to correct height. Well now I see the front is very high and back is very low.

What should I check? I would love your opinions and will start the process of elimination.

This is easy for me to say because I have the diagnostic tools----the system is very challenging----get a scan and or take the car back to the seller and have him fix the issue!!

+1 for Plutoe's comment. Should be a relatively painless fix for an experienced DAS operator.

Fix, painless and Mercedes doesn't seem to fit in the same sentence.

I agree but He did say painless fix for DAS operator. Now the pain for the owner of a Mercedes is a different matter all together.
