I have a 2010 ML 300 (W184 I think) and occasionally the steering goes very tight. Like it has tight spots. This may last for up to half an hour and then disappear until the next time. I have electric powered steering. If it was track rod ends or similar I would have thought that the tightness would be there all the time. I will change the powered steering fluid as soon as I get a chance.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Cheers

Paul

The joints in the steering column under bonnet are siezing.

Yes that is my second port of call. They are a right pain to do as I did them on my past RR Sport
