    Creaky roof

    I have a 2012 E CLass coupe with the panoramic sunroof. I've had the car for a month or so and the roof is driving me crazy. It continually creaks over every surface. Once I have it on tilt it's bearable however as soon as it's down it's a nightmare. Car is still under manufacturer warranty...

    Steering gone creaky

    Have noticed a slight whine on slow turns and I think I have done a silly thing.... I lifted up the rubber boot at bottom of steering column (in engine bay) and squirted penetrating fluid and a smear of bearing grease). Now whenever I turn the steering wheel I get a rubber creaking noise that...

    Creaky roof

    My roof creaks a lot and it's the thing I hate most about my car. It would probably be the only reason I'd switch to something else. I've bought the special mild lubricant from Mercedes but it doesn't seem to 100% solve the issue and only helps for a short time. I think I need to clean the...

    My CLK 208 (2001 - 80,000k) has very creaky front suspension when turning at low speed first thing in the morning. Seems to improve on the open road. But back again in low speed turning - like parking). This has been going on for over a month! Ant ideas on likely cause, repair and cost.

    Creaky headlining

    On the few (rainy) occasions where I've driven my SLK from cold with the roof up recently, I've noticed that for the first mile or so the headlining tends to respond to every bump or pothole with a noticeable creak. I'm assuming this is because the plastic is cold, as once the interior has...

    Creaky Creaky Creaky....

    Creaky Windows in a CLK!!

    Not sure if this is a technical question or not but does anyone who has a W208 CLK find that their driver and passenger windows creak when partially open? When I go over anything but a completely smooth road the windows creak very loudly (I assume its against the rubber window seals) and I’m...

    Creaky front seats

    I have regular semi electric front seats which have started creaking - the best I can guess that it is the seat springs themselves, but wondered if this was likely. Any ideas/suggestions as to whether my hunch is right, and either what the fix could be, or what real cause is?

    SLK creaky roof

    I drove our SLK today for the first time in months, Missus drives mainly. I was amazed at how creaky the roof was, even slightly uneven surfaces provoked a creaking and occasionaly a clunk! The reason I was driving was that the 12 month warranty expired next month and my local dealer had...

    creaky suspension - e300 diesel estate

    A few days ago I had the rear axle rubber mounts replaced. Since then the rear suspension has been creaking every time I go over a large bump/speed bump, etc. It seems to be getting worse. I phoned the specialist who carried out the work and he says the two shouldn't be related. If that is...
