In part 2 of his multipart series on troubleshooting and repairing the air suspension in a W109 Mercedes Kent talks about the theory of operation and shows you the key components that make up the system. He also points out some of the key reasons the system "lets both you and the car down."

In part 1 Kent shows you his 1971 300SEL 3.5 and discusses the problems and frustrations he has had over the years trying to the the air suspension to work perfectly. Now that is a real challenge! He is not on the quest to find a permanent fix so he can enjoy the car fully.

This is just one part in big multi part series Kent is doing on OLD Mercedes Benz. 20 years ago many of these models did not seem that “old.” but now they suddenly are and some are becoming quite valuable. Kent will focus on what he feels are the affordable classics. Other than maybe a walk-a-round he will be not doing much on the likes of the 300SL gull wings and roadsters. He hopes to cover the Pagoda W113s in some of these videos. As this is being filmed in 2014 even these will not be “affordable” in the not too distant future.
