Hi All
Not posted for a while, been busy moving house, C230K estate has developed a really bad squeek from back suspension, will be having a look tomorrow whilst fitting new brake pads to front, any one experienced this on the 202? I'm sure i can find it but any pointers will help as driving to Holland next week and need a quick fix, i suspect shocks but don't know why they should squeek like they are doing, by the way last winter really made a mess rust wise, such a shame, despite 183000 miles she really runs well still and feels nice and tight, i don't drive it very often but always a pleasure when i do but that rust, i can't live with that i think she'll soon have to go.
Does it squeak when you "bounce" the back? If so it will be the shocks/rear suspension. May be through lack of use of course. If you have rear springs on your car they need greasing possibly.

My 2000 CLK320 is doing the same on the rear drivers side. I just had a control arm changed as the rubber bushes had worn quite badly. It;s now doing the same thing again, but Olly down at PCS suspects another bush is going that the control connects to.

Got it booked in a week on Monday to get it looked at.

I reckon your;s will be something similar. Not too expensive.


Sounds like bushes to me too.
