    As the title states, i just need to know what are the sweet spots of a W202. Also, i was thinking to rub them onto my springs as sometimes when i jack up the car i can hear an irritating creaking sound coming from the front... But it might just be me (i'm quite **** with noises coming from the car).

    But initial i'd say around the bootlock (does it get applied ontop of the paint or?), Wheel arches.. and what else?​

    Clean and dry everywhere you are going to put it first.

    Arches are obvious, if it's warm take the wheel arch carpet off from inside the boot and try to spary so it will run down inside the seams (difficult as all you can really do is point the nozzle through the holes).

    On mine the petrol pump/filter bracket had a lot of surface rust so would be worth doing (I took mine off, cleaned it and repainted when changing the filter). Also I pressure washed the whole rear suspension/subframe and sprayed with black waxoyl.

    So it is best to scrape or sand off what rust you can get to before treating? What about bits you can't get at to remove the rust?

    Get as much rust off as you can, if you can't then you can't.

    Does it 'kill' existing rust like some people say?

    To a point. Waxoyl isn't the best product of it's type for that, but it does work.
