The air compressor is the centrepiece of the Airmatic air suspension system by Mercedes. It provides enough pressure for all air springs, so they can carry the weight of the vehicle and cushion the bumps on the road at the same time. The compressor is also responsible for the automatic levelling. The compressed air from it ensures that the rear axle doesn't sink when the car is heavily loaded or a trailer is pulled. Because the compressor of the air springs is necessary for the proper functioning of the suspension, it's related to safety and comfort.
A Functioning Compressor is Important for Safety
A compressor like that of the Mercedes-Benz ML W164 consists of three parts. The pressure housing is used to compress the air. The drive of the compressor is a powerful electric motor. There is also an integrated air dryer. It extracts moisture from the ambient intake air before it's fed into the system.
Compressors are subject to wear as car parts that are in frequently in operation. Wear is also the main reason why the compressor of the Mercedes ML-class W164 fails. Another cause of damage to the compressor may be a leak of an air spring or other air suspension part. In this case, the compressor must compensate for continuous pressure loss in the system by continuous operation. This often leads to overheating and wetting of the dryer, and ultimately to a total failure of the compressor.
Loud Noises Signal Disturbances in the Compressor
Defects of the air suspension system are often acoustically noticeable from the compressor. If the compressor becomes loud during operation, something is definitely wrong. Another alarm sign is when the sign "Airmatic Malfunction" in the cockpit lights. In this cases, you should soon have the defective component replaced by a replacement part. Therefore, also our tip: After the replacement of the compressor, a pressure test of the air suspension must be performed. This ensures that no leakage was overlooked as the cause of the damage.
