Wheels may need balancing. Or, worn tyres.

I have Mercedes sprinter, its power steering is too hard. Is it the hydraulic pump that is defective? or there might be some other problem with power steering system? Any help in this regard will be...


Get the p/s pressure checked. Should be above 400 psi when turning steering whele with engine running. If pressure is good, check for binding ball joints.

Rotate the tires and see if the vibration follows the tires. If so, rebalance tires.

I get a vibration in my stearing wheel when i press on my breaks when going above 60mph.


From what you have described the disc rotors on the vehicle are distorted and could be fairly badly distorted if they have been subjected to excessive temperatures at any time.

This will translate into a pulsation in the brake pedal - especially noticeable when you brake at speeds above about 40mph. At 60 mph - as you found - you cannot miss it. At higher speeds you will also get some vibration through the steering wheel once you brake.

The disc rotors will need to be examined and removed from the car for machining or total replacement. They may be too worn or distorted for machining as the manufacturers specify a minimum safe disc rotor thickness. Disc rotors don't last the life of the car and replacing them is a fairly routine exercise and not usually expensive except on many European cars and on many prestige brands.
The brake pads should also be replaced at the same time unless replaced recently and have minimal wear. The operation of the brake calipers should also be checked.

If you had a wheel balance problem on the car (rectified with a decent re-balance of both front wheels) you would find a constant vibration through the steering wheel at a given speed usually above about 45mph. What you have complained of is vibration only upon braking plus a pulsation through the brake pedal whilst braking.
However if you are also noticing a constant vibration through the steering wheel at or above a given speed when cruising you need to have the front wheels re-balanced and the front suspension and steering checked for problems.
If you have uneven tyre wear you will also need to have the front wheels re-aligned. If a front wheel alignment was not done on the car in the last 12000 miles it will need a wheel alignment in any event.

Front End Steering problem


Here's the fix. Have all of the front end components checked for excessive play (tie rod ends, ball joints, pittman arm, and steering box) and replace any components that are worn. Also, REPLACE the steering stabilizer! It looks like a cross-mounted shock absorber attached to the frame and your steering linkage. These wear out and cause the exact condition that you've experienced.
