How to repair Mercedes W204 ESL/ELV steering wheel lock

This is a thread of “Mercedes W204 Steering wheel lock remove to repair DIY”. Big thanks to the contributor @dannyhoang9 from forum, shares good tips with us.

Here’s the story of his Mercedes W204 steering lock replacement:

Bought my car from the auction, run and start fine when I try to move it out of the parking so the tow truck can tow it to my shop.

No damaged to front end or steering wheel when at the site. After the tow truck tow it to my shop with the dolly, only tow rear wheel but not locking the steering wheel with seatbelt. The Mercedes Scan Tool will not start, no crank I can turn the car to all the way but no thing happen !

Jump start but still cant start ! Check the battery, still have good voltage

Steering wheel just locked, can’t move ?! Lock like something prevent the steering wheel so the key not working

I try to find the electronic steering lock but can’t see it because it was hide deep the back of the steering column.

As I know there no diy or instruction for the steering lock remove for now so I will take the picture and help people like me wont have to pay thousand $$$! In repair bill at the dealer.

The ESL ( electronic steering lock ) cost $500 , you will need the key $300 to sync, program new ESL to make it working with the key, EIS ( electronic ignition switch ) plus labor for remove,install and program for MB dealer !

my cost only $60 to shipped the whole steering column with Mercedes ESL EIS and key, $500 to repair with 1 year warranty to ESL take me 15 minutes to remove and 25 minutes to put everything back.

You need 3 things :
W204 ESL EIS and car key to rebuilt, repair it DIY

The tools :
Torx 25 27

U joint 3/8 with socket extension

1) disconnect the car battery

2) using torx?27 to remove 2 bolts behind the steering wheel

3) using 10?mm?hex?socket to remove the bolt in the center of the wheel

4) Using the E 28 external torx remove the 4 bolt on 4 side of the steering column

How to Change MB Star DAS Xentry Start Picture

It’s a customer interesting setup on changing a picture of Mercedes Benz Diagnostic Tool DAS XENTRY software interface. Here is what he shared for all:

I was playing around with DAS the other day, changing things when i came across a picture of Xentry
So i decided to change it and it worked…
I think you guys can change it so that it displays your shop logo every time you start DAS or picture that you like.
It takes couple of tries but once perfected it can be used on other systems as well
When you change it, just make sure it’s confined to standards such as

File must be in location C:\Program Files\Mercedes-Benz\DAS\bin
File name must be “XentryDAS 991×620.bmp”
File must be in “bmp” format or Bitmap image (.bmp)
Width must be 991
Height must be 620
