Mercedes SLS Accumulator Replacement Instructions - On Demand Video

Step-by-step procedure for safely removing the old accumulator balls and installing new ones

In this video Kent will walk you through the procedure of removing the old accumulators and installing new ones in a W123 300TD wagon. It is a very straightforward job that only takes a couple hours. You will need to raise the car and safely support it on jack stands. The procedure is similar with other models that have SLS, although the leveling valve and the attaching points of the accumulators may be slightly different.

PLEASE NOTE: After installing your new accumulators you may need to do a fluid flush of the system (3.5 liters of hydraulic fluid). If you have recently done a flush you will only need to top off the system ( 1 to 2 liters). Instructions for fluid flusing is NOT included in this video. Those instructions come with our SLS flush and filter kit. Also, you may need to adjust the leveling valve. Those instructions are included in Kent's video on rebuilding the older style leveling valves. See related probucts below for these additional resources.
