Fault running gear workshop touareg


Not being able to turn the steering wheel at all starts at the ignition lock locking the shaft under the steering wheel. Next if that is ok then it indicates a serious problem in the rack and pinion or the flexible joint to the rack/steering box. As this is a safety issue I would put it on a tilt tray and have a accredited steering repair shop investigate the problem. Check the power steering pump drive belt is still intact

Steering wheel moves up and down


You must take the steering wheel apart and tighten the bolts that hold the tilt joint together, a 4 hour job.

Steering wheel tilt lock on a 2004 c230 coupe not locking


There is a electronic motor that is attacked to the steering wheel to allow you to adjust it, I would not get involved in that location if you have no working knowledge of the vehicle. The Air Bag wires run up and down the channels near the steering wheel and can cause deployment if you are not careful, take it to a mercedes technician to help you out.

Tile wheel won't move back down in position


As you move the tilt lever to release the lock pawl from the rack the wheel will move. Yours does not it seems so the rack inside this tilt housing has broken off and has bounded up making the tilt option inoperatble. The steering column will be needed to be torn apart and replace this broken housing with a new one

Play in the steering wheel column after position adjustment


When they did the alignment it's possible that they used a tool that locks the steering wheel straight while it's on the alignment rack.If they put too much pressure on the wheel when they used the steering wheel seat lock tool it may have stressed you tilt lock mech causing it not to lock where you want it.Hope this helps
