Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The issue that you are having is a power steering issue. Are you hearing a whining/moaning noise when you turn the wheel? Have you been noticing any leaks. You need to inspected the power steering fluid first, to be sure that there is enough.

Here, I am a recall on the vehicle concerning this issue, along with instructions for checking the fluid.

Mercedes Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

If the fluid level is low, then this means that you have a leak in the system and the leak will have to be located. If the level is okay, then you will end up replacing the power steering pump. Here, I am attaching information on diagnosing and replacing the pump.
