Hia,

For some unknown reason I got three airbags when I ordered a pair of replacement air suspension bags for my e55 but there is no label on them to differentiate between rear left and rear right. Is there are visuals I can use to make sure I send the right one back?

Cheers

I don’t believe they are, I was tongue in cheek a bit with my comment sorry!
Look at the part numbers on them bet they’re both the same
Where did you get them?

I believe they are identical parts and interchangeable.

Hi,

When you say "air bags" are you talking about the estate rear suspension?

If you are (and the E 55 has the same suspension as the standard E Class estate) then the air bags are handed.

Hi,

The bit of paper with the part numbers is missing. And from my understanding they are indeed handed, i just wondered if new any visual ques to differentiate?

No part numbers on the bags? If so put the numbers into google.

Excellent! I presume you mean that right and left were indeed the same, not that fitting them has made no difference to the car ;)
