The Mercedes R-class vehicles are comfortable minivans built on the W251 platform. Some of them feature rear-wheel drive, while others are equipped with the all-wheel drive 4matic system. The car comes standard with rear air suspension. Vehicles with Airmatic suspension are equipped with the ADS adaptive damping system, which allows the car to adapt to different driving conditions and adjust the positions of each wheel.
Features of ADS
The adaptive damping system is electronically controlled. Sensors for speed, car body angle, and steering angle allow for the collection of information necessary to maintain a balance between a sporty and comfortable ride.
ADS also analyzes data on the road surface and air temperature, so the damping force for each wheel is different. At high speed, the shock absorbers soften the vibration, make the ride smoother, and reduce clearance to minimize drag.
The improved modification of the Airmatic suspension contributes to the comfort and safety of the ride. The wheel position control is guaranteed by:
- air springs;
- valve block;
The air compressor provides the necessary air pressure in the system, which allows for the vehicle to be raised. In case of excess pressure, a valve is activated and excess air escapes. Two types of compressors are available - 4-corner, 2-corner leveling with two-sided and four-sided alignment. The Airmatic suspension with ADS is available on all R-class models with four-wheel drive.
Selection and Purchase of Air Spring Elements
Regular monitoring of the air springs is necessary for the proper functioning of the air suspension. If these elements are damaged, the load on the compressor increases, which can lead to its malfunction.
