2008 250 steering wheel question

Recommended Posts

I have a 2008 is 250 that doesn't have the auto adjust for the steering wheel. I still hear a brief servo type sound from that area at startup and shut down. Is the steering wheel on these models still supposed to retract on shutdown and extend on startup even though it doesn't have power adjust? Mine doesn't but I still hear that type of noise.

Hi, I actually took my car to the dealer for the same exact issue. Turns out there is a little motor in the steering wheel that turns to 1/4 rotation away from steering lock. And if you lock the steering wheel after turning your car off and start it again you will hear the motor release upon start up.
