Airmatic Visit workshop

So my e500 got the airmatic message a few days ago .....but I didn't pay it no mind because my car was still on the air ....then the other day I pressed the raise button (just to check) but the car didn't go up at all (The compressor never came on). Then last night I am walking around the car and the right front is sagging ...it pumps up then goes back down (real fast)

My first question
Do I need a new strut

2nd
if I do need a new strut why isn't the raise button working .....because when I changed the left front the raise button still worked

3rd
Where can I get the strut for cheap (not going coilovers)

Thanks

I don't think it's the compressor because it still cuts on

arnott industries is highly recommended on here and I heard parts geek has better pricing than arnott's own website. Arnott is a sponsor on here I believe so you may want to message them and see if they still have specials for us members.

Ok thanks for the info. One more question, when I jack the car up I hear air escaping, is that the strut?

Arnott is your best option. Realiable affordable and from what i have read on here warranty and customer service is very decent! If you can find access to star or someone who can do the pnuematic test for these compressors...
