hello can somebody help me find out whats wrong with my 2002 cl500 it runs perfect no noises at all and has a new h pump, but today i felt and a noise coming from the stering wheel kinda like a vibration but smooth noisy though and got worse at the end of the day so its progressing (could it be that it needs hydraulic fluid?) its only when i turn the string wheel clockwise (right) and going very slow or not moving, please somebody help me figure out what this noise is ??? is it really serious?

i really really appreciate all responses and help.

You need to know how to check your ABC Fluid level. There is a ton of information here and detailed instructions on how to do it. If the ABC Fluid Reservoir gets too low it can and will damage the pump.

High pitched whine?

If it is a high pitched whine that sends a slight vibration through the steering wheel you may want to check/replace the accumulator/dampener. If it is malfunctioning it sends a high-frequency vibration through the hydraulic lines that run down the drivers side..

I had my Ball Joints and Arms replaced a year ago. Parts are about $300. But its about 6 Hours of labor. So find a good Indy to do the work.

yes it did needed a bit of alignment afterwards which i did.

its also a good idea if you are changing the lower control arms change the upper control arms too or the ball joint at least.

best wishes, good luck
