    E280 CDI Avantgarde
    Hi, I have a E280 CDI, last week while servicing (DIY) I came across oil dripping from the power steering rack, believing it to be the return lines. Bought the kit which consists of o-rings, bolt and pipes, had it fitted, Guess wot still dripping oil. Rather than take it back to the mechanic I lowered the rack and found that the oil was actually coming from the pinion, where it connects to the column, after putting it back together I'm getting ESP defective and speedtronic visit workshop, I remember the steering wheel clicking upon first turns ( had it disconnected from the rack) is there some thing I can do to rectify this problem, help would be appreciated, apparently after reading the forums I've broken the angle sensor, can this be calibrated.

    Many thanks.
