Does the noise happen no matter the direction you turn? Does it happen only with the wheel turned all the way?

Does it happen at speed or only when you turn the wheel with the car stationary, e.g. when parking?

You're hearing the normal "P/S pump at high load" noise. Not to worry, perfectly normal.

RE: 560SL steering noise

wow really? its a scary sound and got me nervous...


ok. ill take your word for it., the reason i tend to believe you , is becasue the person i bought the car from showed me invoices that she had the whole steering system done.

thanks for your response I feel better now..

so you really hear that noise when you turn your wheel?
