I don't know about the KW kit, but with the BC, it's the kit plus the rear lower control arm from the e350 and it's corresponding bolts.

E220 CDI Avantgarde
Hi

I have a S211 2003 Avantgarde, I just made the air leveling suspensior conversion for the Arnott coil springs.

But im having some issues, according to Arnott instrutions it says to turn off the module that lies at the feet of the passenger, but doing that my bi-xenon doesn´t make the 4 leveling mods.

But if I plug the module back on, it makes all the 4 leveling setps, but doing that I have the error message saying that the wagon is down.

Has any one done the coil spring conversion on the wagon and if so, how did you reset the error.

(will be possible to disable the compressor)

You mean air compressor?
I'm not sure how i did it but i had same issue when I disabled some modules in SDS.
Anyway at the end i removed the relay of the compressor out.
And the auto leveling is working.

Yes the air compressor

When you say that the auto leveling is working, do you refer to the xenon leveling ?

You removed the the relay of the compressor did it apear error, and did you still disconet the module under passenger side, our just as said the the air compressor relay?

Hi,

yes. bi-xenon auto leveling.
i didnt remove any module under passenger side.
I just removed the relay and after that the compressor too (sold).
I also played with SDS modules settings but dont remember what exactly (it was few years ago) and i dont have any warning after that.

I have the Active Headlights Bi-Xenon on my S211, that dont work with the passenger module disconected like said on arnot instrutions, if I plug it on agian it works, but it makes apear the information of wagon with the up arrow.

My mecanic tryed to reset it with sam unit, but without success.

I may try and remove the relay, do you remember were is the compressor relay and what collor?

Dont remember where it was but here is the pic of it:

But you NEED to do coding in SDS to disable warnings.
Look in the first post.
I suggest you to do it one by one and test it.
If i remember right, you should NOT change Airmatic suspension setting to Coil suspension setting in SDS.

I dont have airmatic suspension, I have rear air suspension only, And I cant change it to coil suspensio, because there is only that possibility for the cars to the wagons (S211) does not exist on the SDS

Hi mate,

even if it's only air suspension the modules should be listed in SDS.
Check carefully.

That relay location is the one inside the engine back that is located in the back towards the windshield?

Thanks for such a detailed post, and for sharing your knowledge. That E55 looks amazing! I just ordered a coil over kit for my w211 e500. Do you have any suggestions about where I can find the torque specs for all the parts?
