Hi - just thought I'd post the about the problems I've had in case it helps someone. Had my CLS shooting brake 2013 plate 350 diesel for about 2.5 years and have had constant issues with the rear suspension height and headlight aim. It kept being fine for a while and then would sit to low or lop sided sometimes. Having the setting reset at the garage helped for a bit but a month or so later the heights were wrong again. Eventually a small leak was found in a hose that had been rubbing and that solved things for 6 months, then last month it was still being temperamental. This week a chaffed wire to the pump was discovered and had been causing intermittent running of the pump. Worth checking location of hoses and wires if you're ever in that area! Sounds like a terrible design.
