2011 CL550 Malfunction Arrow / Airmatic Issue / Right side Leaning

So I was driving my 2011 Mercedes CL550 yesterday and all of a sudden the "Malfunction" Arrow Up error message comes on. I turn off the car and go outside to check out the car and it seems as though its leaning to the right (passenger side) slightly. The front passenger bumper seems lower then usual. I turn on the car and the car is able to rise, including the right side, however, it still is not leveled with the left driver / side.

Any ideas what issue this is? I'm pretty sure it's not the compressor because the car rises fine. With more initial research, I thought it was the front passenger strut having a leak. However, wouldn't the airmatic not work at all and it would not be able to rise when I turned the car on? Could it be the airmatic control module causing the car not able to level evenly? Could it be fuse, or would that case the entire airmatic system not to work?

Also, keep in mind, I am in Dallas, Texas, it temperatures have reached to around 105 F or even higher, so not sure if this is a contributing factor.

You have a leak in that strut, be careful or you'll burn out the compressor.
Fix is replacement strut.
