    Hi guys. It's ok, I'm not going to start whining, I love my Benz too much. I just have this little problem. When I pull away in my W202 C180 Esprit, I get a little squeaking noise that sounds like it would be in time with the rotation of the UJ's on the prop/drive shaft. It happens when the car...
