Customer Question

I have a mercedes e320 the steering wheel adjusts itself when I put the key in the ignition.
This has never happened before,is it a cause for concern as I have had the car since I bought it new in 2005.

It sounds like the "easy entry" function may have been selected!

This is a feature that when you remove the key the steering wheel goes up & when you insert the key it comes back down.

On models with this feature you can switch the easy entry function on & off in the settings menu in the instrument cluster by using the steering wheel buttons.

I would think from what you are saying that this feature may have been selected without you realising.

Morning Paul,

I don't seem to have that function on my steering wheel.However by using a handle on the side of the wheel which I have never previously used I was able to correct the problem.

Thanks John.
