    Hi Rodney,
    This is Foamy, thank you so much for your reply. I have looked at the steering unit all around and can't find any wires leading to a solenoid. Also, I was always under the impression that a fuse was either blown or not, never intermittent. Your take on it sounds most likely that it's the solenoid and not the rack given the mileage.
    Again, thanks!

    Rudeney, you've been helpful on a few of my posts. Can you recommend a good MB parts online shop?

    I am looking purchase a 2006 C230 with VIN#: WDBRF52H76A869833. Vehicle has 69K miles and oil leaking from rear passenger side of engine. Told it was two (2) small gaskets that can be replaced for $300-$500. Dripping onto converter causing smoke and smell issues. Also sunroof opens fine but does not close smoothly. Any advice and/or direction is greatly appreciated.....

    Do you have WIS or official service manual on disc sold by MBZ? The official service manual doesn't have the WIS documents. If you are using WIS, there is a field labelled "Direct search by document number" and that's where you enter this document code, then click the "2. Start search" button.

    Rudeney! I was going to go back to a post you and I spoke about regarding the Star system. I just wanted to get your take before I pulled the trigger on it. The post you made was an individual's website selling the Chinese version of the system. I am just unsure of the reliability of the seller (more than the system itself). Ebay has some, but the link you had was less($300). Do you have any recommendations/suggestions? I'll be using a Dell 620 and just get the older SDS with the DB9 connection. Any update versions I should look out for? Anything like that?
    As always, thanks for your help.
