Pump has failed most likely; have you noticed poor response recently while driving?

With the engine on, locate the pump. There is a union that comes out of it with a line that leads to the ABC fluid reservoir- this is the pressure regulating valve. Try giving it a (VERY GENTLE!) tap with a soft faced mallet, it may open it.

Otherwise it's flatbed to indy time I'm afraid.

Pump (twice...), strut, lines and valve block all needed replacing or stripping and rebuilding.

If your rear wheels have sunk that low, your valve block will also be gunked up; it will need stripping down, cleaning out and rebuilding. I have the correct O-rings in stock if this is the case.

Level sensors are on the struts as I understand it. Pressure sensors on the front and rear valve blocks for the 221.

Reconditioned pumps for the 220/215/230 are 480 from MB (12 mth warranty)- I do not know if they will fit the 221/216/231 though so it will pay to check. The pumps have come down significantly in price over the last two years.

It is indeed, it sounds odd that the pump has just gone, usually there will be indications, white warnings and odd activity (including a pretty obvious noise!) before it fails completely.
