I have been sensitised to the noises to he extent that it is really starting to spoil my enjoyment of the car. I am desperate...

    Hi All I have a 61 plate W212 and was hoping someone could check something for me, I took my car into the dealer as I had a intermittent rattle on rough road surfaces, they took a lot of the trim apart and advised it was one of my middle air vents. I have 2 issues: 1) I'm not sure their...

    300te rattles & stalls

    Folks My 124 300te cut out (stalled) today after a 1 hour motorway drive. I had pulled into the Services when it simply stalled. On re-starting, it has a top end front rattle and cuts out when you shift into D, unless you have some revs. It has clean coolant and oil with no smoke or steam...

    C63 Estate rattles. Does yours?

    I bought my 61 plate C63 estate in March. I knew it had a rattle in the boot area as I heard it on the test drive but it was a good deal so bought the car. The headlining in the boot rattles over bumps like wardrobe doors rattling! There are numerous other squeaks and groans in the car. I had an...

    W205 interior rattles

    Hi all. I've had my c class now for two weeks and since day one I've had a slight rattle from the centre dash mounted screen. I usually turn up the music to fade it out. However I've noticed when you press the top of the screen it stops rattling for a while then comes back. Anyone else had...

    C63 rattles

    Fixed! My estate (2012) went in to Swindon on Wednesday to have the all too common rattles sorted. They've been there since almost day one but I've put up with it/couldn't be bothered to get it sorted/thought they would disappear. Picked it up yesterday and it was like collecting a new car...

    C63 AMG Rattles, Buzzes and Irritates

    Rattling. It started with a small high pitched buzz. With much Clouseau like investigation, we tracked it down to the plastic screen surround on the Sat Nav. If you put your hand on the dash board there, it stops. Then we started to get an intermittent rattle that sounds like a conker has...

    C Class Coupe Rattles and Creaking

    Hi All, had my C Class Coupe (2012) for a few months and have noticed that the dash creaks from within the heater area now and again. I also have the glass roof and that creaks on bumpy roads - trying the dry lubrication option from Halfords and nearly sorted it but not good for a £30k car...

    Another video of MY rattles

    So the saga continues and both MBUK and the dealer have failed to speak with me for a week now. The rattles in the car are getting worse. It was a case that the car only rattled when the car was warm. Now it seems to rattle all the time. So on a trip down the A1M (not exactly a minor road)...

    Update on my rattles - Inspection Day

    So today was the day that Mercedes-Benz UK came out to "inspect" my car. I went for a good long drive with Dean from MBUK and indeed he confirmed that yes he could clearly hear the rattles that I was referring to :bannana: I went with a good long drive with Andy (Dealer Principal) and he...

    Did somebody ask for a video of rattles?

    aY-nfVPZ-QE So I managed to get a video demonstrating the types of rattles I have been experiencing on my C Class (see other thread) But this has a twist because this isn't my car. This is yet another C Class that ALSO rattles and creaks but it gets better This is the Dealer Principles own...

    Gobsmacked

    As you know, my car has been in and out of the dealer for the last 10 months. Nearly all the visits have been related to rattles coming from the dashboard area. So after lots of attempts to fix things, the car spent two weeks solid at the dealer whilst they stripped the dash and put it back...

    Are squeaks & rattles covered under warranty?

    Hi I have had my new C350 for a month now and it still brings a smile to my face. However, I have one really minor niggle that is driving me mad. My drivers side seatbelt rattles & squeaks when I have it on. Constantly. It seems its the belt tensioner within the door pillar. I can't get to...

    R171 trim/plastic rattles when roof is up

    Hi guys, Just a quickie to say is it normal to hear a few plastic/trim creaks when you drive with the roof in place? It seems 'so much better off ' than on so is there any maintenance needed to help this reduce or stop? Thanks,Andy.

    Window rattles with new 2011 E350 Cabriolet (A207)

    Hello all, This is my first post so please be gentle on me. Just purchased a new E350 CDI Cabriolet - AMG Sport. The killer function for me was the Distronic Plus feature, which I think is 100% amazing especially in congested UK. Don't understand why more people aren't raving about how great...

    w203 dashboard rattles

    Recently bought a w203 post-facelift (2004). It's great, but there are a number of almost unnoticeable changes over the pre-facelift which are for the worse. Some of the plastics seem to be of lower quality, and the dashboard just doesn't seem as solid as my old pre-facelift (2001). Is a...

    Solving annoying interior rattles

    Not that this is unique to my ML - although having said that, it's not the most solidly built car ever... but what would you suggest in solving little rattles and squeaks inside the car? A good example of this is the centre armrest. It's not made very well. If you lean on it, the armrest creaks...
