Need Private Mechanic for Steering Wheel Issues

Hi there- owner of an ML 320CDI '08 and the steering wheel (which is powered) won't raise up or lower down (it will extend and retract though)...took it to MB Dealer in Burlington (Ontario, Canada) and they tell me the entire column needs to be replaced and will cost $1950.00! Any alternative ideas or recommendations of private mechanics who could help?
