    Power-Steering Deactivation

    500e steering is WAY too light for me above about 2mph, so I pulled the fuse. It also deactivates the ESC, & I sometimes like the traction control feature, so I plan to find the steering motor & unplug it instead. Now when parking I get a nice little workout.
    The fuse is in the box on the driver's side firewall. I discarded the useless bolt that keeps the cover from sliding open a bit when you roll the car. That way I can easily turn it back on when I take people on test drives. It's the 70 fuse, shown inserted into a formerly blank slot with no connectors (just plastic) which makes a nice holder for when it's not in use in it's original slot, shown open further up.
