In order to make your Mercedes-Benz easier to turn, especially at slower speeds, a power assisted steering rack must be used.
This power steering rack uses hydraulic fluid pressure from an engine-driven pump to assist in the movement of the steering gear based upon your inputs from the steering wheel.
The power steering rack in your car will usually last quite a long time, however it is not immune to failure. Due to its location underneath the car, the power steering rack is exposed to all sorts of road debris, as well as the elements. This, along with neglected maintenance can result in a power steering rack failure.
Symptoms of power steering rack failure can include difficulty turning the steering wheel, power steering fluid leaks or a laboring power steering pump. If you think the power steering rack in your Mercedes-Benz has seen better days, replace it with a quality part from ECS Tuning.
If you are replacing your power steering rack, be sure you have everything you need to do the job. ECS Tuning carries a full line of steering components for your Mercedes-Benz to help you keep it on the road and performing like new.
*Due to chassis splits and option codes, please verify fitment of this power steering rack with your Mercedes-Benz prior to ordering*
