Power Steering Pump Replacement with Pictures + VIDEO: E CLK SL C SLK CL Class

Instructions on how to replace the power steering pump or the power steering reservoir on Mercedes Benz V6 and V8 cylinder engines, such as the M112 and M113 engines. Symptoms of Power Steering Failure are:

  • Whining or squealing noise
  • Wheels are difficult to turn
  • Hard steering

We recommend that before you go and replace a power steering pump make sure that you have not lost power steering fluid. If you need help on checking the power steering fluid then check out this video. If you fluid level is low fill it up, using Mercedes Benz Power steering Fluid. Low power steering fluid will cause a whine, especially when you turn your steering wheel. You may have a very small leak that only needs topping off.

ML Class W163 issues: ML320, ML430, ML500 Mercedes-Benz even issued a Technical Bulletin for the steering issues such as squeaks and squeals noises from the area of the rack and pinion when turning the steering wheel left and right. According to the manufactures this noise comes from insufficient lubrication at the shaft sealing ring in the control head. The dealer’s solution is to remove 50 ml of power steering fluid and replace it with 50 ml of Lubrizol 6178.  Technical Bulletin Order No; T~B~46.20/31h. Supersedes: T-B46.20/31a

  7. Remove the two bolts on the back of the power steering pump. They are a pain to get to but you can do it.  If you have ratcheting wrench like these, you can use a 3/8 on the rear bolts. You will save a lot of time and get the job done a lot faster if you have ratcheting wrenches available.

  9. Remove the attachment arm from the old power steering pump and attach to the new power steering pump. Note: You can also leave the arm attached to the engine, and unbolt these two bolts directly from the power steering housing. If you go this route you will have to unbolt the two bolts through the power steering pulley.mercedes_benz_power_steering_pump_removal02 mercedes_benz_power_steering_pump_removal19

  11. NOTE: In step 10. There may be a ground wire as well connected to the power steering pump. If you are having a hard time getting to that bolt, don’t bother taking that off until you have the power steering pump loose. Once the bolts that hold the power steering pump in place come loose, you can move the PS pump and loosen the ground bolt.
