    w208 - Slight groaning noise when turning steering wheel

    Hi folks My w208 is off to the garage tomorrow to have the tracking sorted, and I've asked them to take a look at a potential problem with the steering while it's there. Just to help me better understand what to expect, I wondered if anyone had encountered a similar problem. The issue...

    A170 Engine groaning noise

    Hi I have just bought a 6 year old Mercedes A170 automatic from my local dealer. Fortunately they gave me a 12 month full Merc warranty on it. The engine when warm makes a groaning/low humming noise which almost matches the engine revs. In other words a slight delay. It sounds like a big belt...

    odd groaning noise on A150 (W169)

    Odd. Our A150 (new shape W169) has just developed an intermittent noise. Sounds a bit like a pump groaning, or something. It does not change with rpm, nor braking, nor with speed, it occurs when moving and at rest. Once it occurs, it will continue until the ignition is turned off. If the car...

    groaning from the steering

    I have had a strange groaning from the steering for the last 3 weeks. It is only when turning right at at about 20-30mph. Always when going round a roundabout a little faster than the average driver. If I steer slightly left when the noise is evident it goes away. When I try turning right...
