      You can buy a remanufactured pump for under $200. Nobody buys seal kits for PS pumps, certainly not mechanics. Even if you tried to get a seal kit you'll not find it.

    When making a turn it seems as though my tire is rubbing I wasn't having this problem before I had my cv joints changed
    The problem occurs when I'm making a left turn. I have no check engine lights and no warning lights on but like I said it started when I had the cv joints changed.

      It can be because of a bent wheel or loose wheel bearing, it can also be worn steering or suspension parts. (Raise you vehicle up and check the stability of each component. I usually check for looseness by shaking the part left and right (Example: Tie rod end, to check if its moving because of worn out bushings.)
    • benz guy 888
      11/11/2011 benz guy 888
      you have balanced the wheels? so i guess the tires are in good shape and get worn out evenly...if they are okay then i agree with bender...check the tire rods because the bushing gets worn out and while your at it check the suspension.

      do you mean both left and right brake/reverse lights?check the fuses for the brake/reverse lights, if it's busted have it replaced with the same kind of fuse...if the fuses are okay, check the bulbs and if they are busted replace them with the same kind of bulbs....but it is unusual for all bulbs to go out all at the same time...hope this helps,,,tell me how it works out.

      this is more than likely a faulty key or a fault in the drive authorization system. If you have a spare key I would try it. If that doesn't help or if you don't have a spare key the car will need to be connected to the Mercedes diagnostic tester for a diagnosis of the drive authorization system.

    How to install rear shocks or locate top mounting bolt
     
    • Spoon Sports

      Although I've never worked on an SL500, based on other MB automobiles, I suspect you need to remove the trunk compartment liner panels on each side. Typically the side-to-side panel locks the side panels in place so you need to remove it first. Then release the side panels from the upper clips and twist/lift the panels out of the trunk. Once you do one side the other will be easier.

      When you are driving down the road and hit a bump, your car keeps bouncing for a while. This will gradually get worse as time goes by.

      POSSIBLE CAUSES:

      - The shock absorbers are worn or leaking.
      - The shock mounts for the shock absorbers are broken or bent.

      Hello Spoon Sports...sorry, shocks is not the answer. I forgot to mention that I figured that the problem was shocks and had a new set installed front and rear. The continues to shake, shimmy, and bounce when I hit a dip in the road. The car sit fine. It is not leaning! What do you think about struts. I'm wondering if the car has rear struts, if this could be the problem. Thanks for your response.

      I doubt it. Try rotating the tires and see if the vibration changes. Moving tires is a useful diagnostic strategy.
