Power steering. http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w140...-steering.html post #2

Since you said it's bone dry, you haven't had any steering issues?

Well my first guess was power steering but I remember the canister with the screw on top was power steering so I go a bit confused. But yeah, that post gives the info you need.
