Power Steering Issue- what forum?

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and new to owning a Mercedes. I just bought a 1997 E-320 and got it for a song from someone in my church. It's in amazing condition especially considering how old it is. I was told when I bought it that it had a power steering fluid leak and the RP would eventually need replacing so I was prepared to put money and work into it when I bought it. I'm wondering what forum is best to ask questions about this. I'm a young woman who doesn't know much about cars so I want to make sure I have basic info and don't get taken to the cleaners at a mechanic.

Welcome aboard, Angela.

Please take a moment to click user cp and edit details so you can easily add your vehicle and location to your profile; it's often useful information when you're seeking assistance.

The W210 forum is the one that meets your needs. Scroll down into the sedan section and you'll see it listed. Once there, you'll see several sticky threads at the top which cover a ton of topics.

If you search in that forum you'll find several threads on power steering leaks. There are lots of possibilities, so hopefully yours will turn out to be simple and cheap.

If you're interested in exploring your own abilities in the DIY world, lots of folks will lend their knowledge and experience. Fixing the PS leak may not be a good place to start, though. Better to start easily, like changing the air filter.

Good luck, and enjoy the new ride. See you in the 210 forum!
