Installation of BILSTEIN B3 air spring for E-Class

During installation, it must be ensured that air springs are always replaced in pairs. Observe the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications regarding the replacement of bolts and self-locking nuts and the prescribed tightening torques. Typical workshop tools and a diagnostic tool are required to replace the air springs. Installation gauge is supplied by BILSTEIN with the air spring.

Notes: Check the entire suspension system thoroughly for damage. When fitting the pressure line to the air spring: Do not kink, twist or crush the pressure line. Never lower the vehicle completely from the lifting device with depressurised air suspension.
