The connecting pipe from the compressor has an updated tube part number # A220 327 00 00. Use the STAR system and test the compressor. Unless you burned out the compressor the updated tube will be your fix. Also try manually giving air to the shocks to make sure they aren't leaking.

The part you can get from the Mercedes Dealer. STAR is the Mercedes diagnostic tool, if you don't have the tool no point in explaining how to test the compressor. I believe you can use a AUTOLOGIC scanner to test the compressor also. Follow the lines from the valve that distributes the air from the compressor and add air to see if the car lifts on a particular side.
