    ABS and ESP Currently Inoperative. Power steering turns off

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...

    Tandem Pump

    Hi. 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?

    Squealing when turning

    Hi all, 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...

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...

    W203 C220 CDI 2001 with slight squeak on steering

    Hey Guys. 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?

    sprinter noisy power steering pump.

    Hi, 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...

    W124 intermittent power steering

    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...
