What does the "ACCUMULATOR" do in the suspension/ shocks system.

Asked by Jul 15, 2014 at 02:03 AM about the 1994 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E 320 Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After stupidly leaving a very heavy load on my '94 E-320 Wagon, my MB sits lower and driving bumpy roads feels like I have no shocks.  I depressed them for so long that they are no longer absorbing bumps as they should -- or so I thought.!   I was simply going to get 4 new shocks since the coil springs are O.K.  My MB  mechanics say my shocks are O.K., and all I need are a set of "ACCUMULATORS" for a mere $700 +.   I do not know what they are yet, but I am confused now.  Can anyone educate me about what they are talking about?  Thank you very much,  CARL ERLENDSON  ---------

you really need to consider keeping the car the way it was designed so you maintain the best performance and ride. Go to ecklersmbzparts.com and price out what you need. I think you will find their prices are a fraction of MB's and actually have a longer warranty. The part you need may be item P32-074 which sells for 119.99 each. Your car has two of these.
