C230 Power Steering

Hi folks!

I just got a 2002 C230 Coupe. I find the steering quite hard (as in, feels like no power steering).

Is there anyway to 'loosen' up the steering so I don't need 50 ft/lbs of torque to turn the wheel?

thanks!

When was the last Power Steering Flush and refill? It's a easy DIY. My father fixed a C230 coupe on regular occasion. If I remember right, the C230 has the reservoir. Get a Turkey Baster and start suctioning the fluid. Refill. It doesn't matter to drain, because you'll still have a little of the old fluid. Do that first to see if it helps. Good luck.
