Yippie! Mercedes Rodeo at Today’s European Cars!

Although CorVid-19 cheated us out of most of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, https://www.rodeohouston.com/, there are opportunities for rodeo excitement nearly every day—scrambling after kids and pets, lassoing opportunity, racing around construction barrels and bronc busting down Richmond at 35 mph.

Have you ever seen a Mercedes rodeo? Here is a quick video of the process to remove air from the hydraulic suspension system of some Mercedes cars. When replacing a line or pump, air is introduced into the system. This air must be removed as air is compressible and hydraulic fluid is not.

Air bubbles rises to the highest point–watch as the car pivots and undulates to move any potential air upward to the reservoir tank. Takes longer than eight seconds, but no one gets hurt.
