Thanks so much, Konigstiger! This is a big help.
It looks like I need to remove the plate, center the wheels, then reinstall the plate. Although, I admit I do not understand (mechanically speaking) how not having the wheels pointing straight ahead when installing the metal plate impacts the performance of the steering. Seems like the Rack is just held in place by the plate, not influenced by it. However, Since everything I read online says to fix the position of the wheels straight ahead before working on the R&P, I will trust this is the source of my issue.
I need to find a manual that has all this type of information, since my car has 150k on it now and I expect to be doing some of the work myself.
If you have a link to where I can buy a 2006 CLS55 AMG Manual I would appreciate it.
I'm including a pic so you can see my baby just waiting for me to get the steering thing fixed.
I will report back on the results of my effort.
