    Steering Noise From Steering Wheel

    What are u going on about. I have asked if anyone as had similar issue and came up with a solution other than a column change as I have no wish to replace. Are these forums not about asking others help and advice on such matters and not sarcastic comments as the above. Thanks for nothing...

    Steering Noise From Steering Wheel

    Developed a really annoying groan like noise from steering wheel area when turning wheel at very low speeds. Seems a common problem on the W205 series early on resulting in column change. Any one had this issue and solved without such costly parts.

    Servicing at Mercedes or Halfords?

    I'd rather take it to the local farm shop than Halfords , they would have more of a clue what they were doing with it than them Clowns.

BMW always had the problem and they specified there own washer fluid but it was all a load of tosh , people were putting neat screen wash in and the pipes and pump sludge up. Gonna be a ball ache cleaning it...

    Main dealer servicing “technicians”

    I actually see this as a positive that so many young techs are still entering the trade. I'm involved in the Motor Factor side and deal with indis all day and they all struggle to get replacement techs. Seems the youth of today don't really see the industry as a good career choice. Basic service...
