Asked by prioritymale1959 Aug 05, 2007 at 10:59 PM about the 1995 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 4 Dr S500 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I hear a whining noise from the steering when I first start the car in the morning and anytime it's been sitting for a while.  I think I just need to add power steering fluid.  How do I do this?

There should be a reservoir marked with a picture of a steering wheel, or power steering fluid, etc., located on the side of the engine where the drive belts are, or perhaps on one of the fender wells inside. Are you sure this isn't a belt chirp? Often times a stretched or dried power steering belt will cause this same problem.

Did you add the power steering fluid? Did the noise go away? I have the same exact problem with my ML 500, please help!
