Have you ever had heavy steering ?


I have a 2003 C-Class which has very heavy steering, I have checked the fluid and the powersteeing belt - but nothing - no apparent leaks or any strange nosies.

The weight of the steering stays constant - going fast or slow. When I turn a sharp corner & let go of the steering wheel - its very very slow to center itself again,

I would really, really appreciate any help guys,

Thanks in advance,

My 2008 has very light steering, but it too is slow to self-centre - in fact it doesn't. I have to pull it back the last 10 degrees. i rented a W203 recently and it was the same, but with heavier steering than the 204

Perhaps the speed sensitive power steering solenoid valve, not uncommon on other models.
