2007 ML500, just had the steering shaft bearing replaced today and the steering feels normal now.

The symptoms of this were a slight vibration feeling in the steering wheel on certain roads with many seams and uneven surfaces. It was only a slight vibration but I thought it was not normal. Most people would likely not even worry about this. However, to be on the safe side, I thought maybe it could be the start of a growing problem.

I had to take it in twice, second time with the technician driving it and with me in the passanger seat before we could get it to occur. Lucky I found the right road.

Just got it under warranty too :)

Interesting. Ours goes in tomorrow for what I believe is the same issue. Hopefully I don't get the "it's normal" bs. This will also be the second time in for this issue. Fingers crossed.

I figured my vehicle is not the only one that has this issue. The technician said that steering column bearing issues are not uncommon.

Post the findings of your vehicle.

i had a similar issue with my 06 ml500, but there was ticking in the steering wheel. the dealership just replaced the whole rack and pinion. i guess that was their diagnosis.

i have the same problem (w164 - 06) and the dealership he said it should change the column shaft for steering wheel. Its easy to change rack and pinion? how many time needed? And which is the cost for parts and labours?
