Question about Mercedes-Benz 300-Class
Your car's power steering system is a hydraulic pressure assist system that helps to turn the wheels when you turn the steering wheel inside your car. The power steering fluid is contained in a reservoir in the engine compartment on or around the power steering pump(Usually on driver side area near the break fluid reservoir and master cylinder). Some reservoirs are see-through containers with level indicator marks. Others use a dipstick. This will determine how you check your fluid. You have stated that this reservoir is low. This will be the cause of the (Hard sound), you are hearing. i recommend filling the reservoir up to the fill line asap. this high pressure system can be damaged dramatically in this low fluid state. the entire pump will be ruined if the fluid level remains low.
If you are hearing a Whining sound or, clicking, this will confirm damage to the power steering pump gear assembly and seal.
