Got a 2009 Mercedes S550 4Matic. Everything was good with it no prior shaking, damage, weird noises, then I start the car and start driving and I see the message pop up (ABS & ESP currently unavailable) also the power steering turns off and it gets hard to turn the wheel. The only thing prior to...
Am currently replacing the seals & O rings on my ABC tandem pump.
Have taken one of the 7 Allen bolts out that hold the spring & piston in. The bolts thread has broken in two for some reason. The other six bolts are fine.
Does anyone know if the bolt cap can be purchased individually?
When I turn the steering wheel on my Mercedes C220d 2007 to full lock either left or right it makes a really loud squealing sound. Not like something rubbing on rubber or plastic but really quite a loud squeeking noise.
I have had a local garage look at it and they topped up the...
I own a 1996 C180 - the maintenance booklet does not mention power steering fluid. I have looked at a few you tube videos and they all suggest its necessary to change the fluid. The fluid level on mine show just on the minimum and the oil looks very dark. Is it best to have it flushed and...
Hi, I have w210 1997 E230, the PS rack leaks in a horrible way (i add 1 L per 5 days), someone tell me to change the rack, but when the fluid level is ok, the rack works great.
my question is, i can't change the rack now, so if i change the seals, it does solve the problem periodically.
Simple problem. The power steering pump makes a noise when the engine is on. Started yesterday. Noise clearly comes from the front near the belt - at first (Based on my description over the phone) my mechanic thought it could be the pulley on the alternator (which also needs replacement...
Can I fit a Steering Rack which has a speed sensitive transducer on it to a car without that function, i.e. just leave it disconnected? Will it still work?
Thanks for any replies

I have a W203 C220 CDI 2001 Auto.
Over the past few weeks i have noticed a slight squeak when turning the steering wheel.
I did check what i think is the power steering fluid after removing the engine cover. (See attached). Is this low?
Could it be something else?
Hello, sorry if this sounds daft, but I have a question to ask reference the differences between 500SL (R129) power steering pumps. My car is registered as a 1993 model, but it appears to be the earlier pre-1993 model: -
VIN - WDB1290662F061380
Engine - 11996022033843
Non-tandem pump model...
Anybody else had problems? The power steering on my W212 200CDi failed twice in a month (at 9 months old ). The second time the pump failed without warning whilst I was on a winding road and nearly sent me straight on into a rock face.....
This is my first Mercedes - I bought it because I...
My local, highly trusted indy is currently looking at my beloved car to try and source the cause of a strange noise Ive noticed over the last few days.
Symptoms: a noise similar to straining power steering system, particularly noticeable below 1000RPM, don't have to be moving -...
I have had a noisy power steering pump for some time now.
The noise is like a loose bearing which changes when the steering is moved or the engine is put on load.
I replaced the belt and the pulleys just to make sure it was the pump, as this was a cheaper option. But the whyning was...
My 1996 E300 D developed a fault last night. All of the dash
board indication lights lit up (kind of half illuminated) and the
power steering stopped working. There is also a loud squeeling noise
coming from the engine. I wonder if there is a belt that drives
something to do with the power...
Hi everyone, about two weeks ago My car started making a whirring sound when I turn the wheel at low speeds. A quick search on forums such as this one suggested that the power steering fluid may be low and that this was a common problem for a car of my mileage (~60K). I checked the fluid and...
