The Mercedes dealer just told me that I need a new power steering box to remedy the slack in my steering column for a whopping $1300 plus $400 labor! I found the part a whole lot cheaper than that on an exchange. Is this difficult to change?

did u already set the play adjustment on it? sounds to me like they're trying to get u for ur money...

set it to the max setting, and see if that helps. if too much, give her a bit more play, and itll work. this part RARELY goes bad......

Thats pretty expensive!! I was offered the same stuff for US$300, and it's guaranteed to eliminate the slack malady.

Have to save money though..

I looked a Mercedessource and did not find the power steering box you referred to. Can you direct me further?

I couldn't find it there either. I may want to just buy one if I can get it that cheap. Could you maybe post a link to the box you're talking about?
