SOURCE: Stiff steering

Check fluid and make sure it filled enough,(make sure that its actually power steering fluid in there and not something else added by mistake for ex. antifreeze etc) make sure there are no leaks. Check power steering belt and and make sure its tight NOT loose or slipping. From personal experience with these vehicle you MOST likely cause of this problem if all the items above are GOOD is a bad power steering pump.

SOURCE: steering wheel controls

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament (ribbon type connector), the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

SOURCE: 2004 clk 500 unsteady idle rpm, could it be the

RUN down to Advance Auto Parts and buy a can of "SeaFoam" and add to your gas tank per instructions...drive for at least 100 miles and the problem should be gone. If not, one or more of your O2 sensors are most-likely fouled (lousy fuel quality these days).
Good Luck

SOURCE: stiff steering

do you live in high salted areas? If so, My freestyle had the same problem. It's the joint in the steering column (you can see it from underneath the vehicle) Just keep it lubed. I had to replace mine because it had worn out. Expensive. Also, it could be the bearings on top of your front struts. Dirt gets into it and binds it up. Poor engineering designs.

My 2005 clk 500 comfort settings for the seats/steering wheel set for 1st time then only steering wheel goes up and seat does not go back? Help


Have the codes read for the entire car. Most likely the body control module(BCM). Points to a bad plug, fuse or most likely the BCM. Start with the fuse for corrosion.

Tip stick location


There is no dip stick to check the oil on a CLK 500. The oil level is checked electronically on the instrument panel, in the settings menu--operated using the + - and menu buttons on the steering wheel.. The car must be on level ground and not running, with ignition on accessory.

How do i bleed my power steering, level i good but a little stiff, 2005 dodge dakota quad cab 4.7 liter 4x4


you don't bleed your power steering,just make sure it's full,if you have any air in the system it will work itself out,if your steering is stiff could be be a sign of a worn unit or the rack and pinion.

2004 chev silverado ext cab. No Power steering


Hi Hollings,

You description was very good, I need to ask for a specific.

When you turn to the left, the wheel is stiff like the engine is off or does it turn smoothly but the vehicle doesn't turn or seem to respond.

I'm trying to rule out broken mounts,

Also, if the wheel is all the way to the right, is it difficult turning back to the left the whole way, or half way. See where I'm going.?

Please comment back your findings

Best regards
Mike
