Hi,

I have 1994 E320.

I am getting a knocking noise (not loud) from the front at ~ 30-50 mph. The density of knocking is related to the speed and it's faster then wheel spin. I have new front brakes (rotors/pads), new struts; There is no play in the steering wheel and the rest of the suspensions looks good.

Another thing, I am not sure if it's related, - the speedometer arrow is jumping in tact with that knocking (I think).


What could it be?!

Thank you,

Val

Not sure if you have a speedo cable on your, but if you have it sounds like it has a kink in it? I've had this on non MB cars in the past.:confused:

Agree....try disconnecting the speedo cable to see if it cures the noise.
