    Steering

    I Know a few people have had steering issues, has anybody tried this?

    Adjusting power-assisted steering box

    Adjusting power-assisted steering box
    Two mechanics are required for adjustment, which is to be performed with engine switched off.
    • Raise vehicle on lifting platform.
    • Wheels in straight ahead position.
    • Turning steering wheel back and forth (roughly 30°about centre axis) produces a rattling noise in the event of excessive steering play.
    • → Have second mechanic carefully screw in adjusting screw (arrow) until rattling noise disappears inside vehicle.
    • Perform test drive.
    • After manoeuvring/cornering, make sure steering returns automatically and smoothly to straight ahead position. Correct setting if necessary.
