The best thing to do for the integrity of the vehicle is to zip tie them out of the way. Put mild bends to get them where you need and use a few zip ties to hold them indefinately. Please don't remove them. If you decide later to install the proper ones or sell the car, it would decrease the value if they are gone. Also disconnect the leveling motor so it does not run and burn itself up.

What are the necessary repairs for a 2002 S500 Mercedes with 91000 miles? What should your car be serviced for by this point

Hi, this really depends on its service history.

The following are the recommended service intervals on the Merc S500:

Note: operate A/C at least once per week, to maintain lubrication.

Underhood & Undervehicle

Every 3,000 miles - Replace engine oil & oil filter. Clean battery terminals. Adjust drive belt. Check power steering fluid. Check steering & CV BOOTS for wear and replace if necessary. Lubricate front end suspension.

Every 6,000 miles - Check transmission fluid condition and level. Check brake pads and caliper components - replace if necessary. Lubricate driveshaft U-joints. Rotate tires. Lubricate wiper arm linkage and pivots.

Every 12,000 miles - Adjust engine valve clearance. Replace distributor cap & rotor. Drain and replace engine Coolant. Replace Air Filter element. Replace Fuel Filter. Replace wiper blades.

Every 24,000 miles - Replace Drive Belt. Replace A/C Compressor Drive Belt. ** Change auto transmission fluid & trans filter (this is critical and must be adhered to) - preferrably do a trans flush at same time. Replace drive AXLE fluid.

Every 36,000 miles - Replace HT leads.

Every 2 years - Replace brake fluid (also clutch fluid if applicable). Replace power steering fluid.

** If you intend to keep this vehicle long term, then consider changing the trans fluid & filter every 20,000 miles. This is the secret to automatic transmission longevity.

Power stearing not working. merc s500 2000.

Hi, your problem could be down to a couple of things so try the following,
1 check the fluid in the steering pump resevoir if you look under the bonnet you will see the power steering pump and the bottle you need to fill up it should have steering written on it, check the level and top up if needed.
2 check the belt is still connected to the steering pump have a look and make sure the belt has not snapped that drives the pump its the belt that drives the alternator etc but the pump may have seperate belt but it will be the same side as the alternator.
3, if after doing the above and the belt is ok then this would indicate the pump is no longer working and if this is the case then your going to need to get the pump replaced, doing this will solve your problem.

1995 Mercedes S500 coupe. When put in reverse, takes a while (few seconds) to get in gear, then I can back up. When I put in drive and any other gear.. there are no issues.

I would check the fluid level first and then take to the transmission shop (avoid franchises) to get a diagnostic. You might have to have it rebuilt ($ 1,500.00 to $ 2,000.00). I paid $1,500.00 for mine.
