    Hi All

    I have just bought a 2015 E220 Bluetec. Up to now seems a lovely car and a great drive. What I have noticed that in full lock I occasionally get a strange noise. a cross between a squeal and a grinding noise. Not sure of the cause. could it possibly be brakes catching a bit? does not happen all the time and I have only done 100 miles since picking it up from the dealer.

    Any ideas what could cause this?

    Could be low fluid level in power steering, that's where I'd check first

    It is under warranty, do not bother investigating, book an appointment to have it checked over by the dealer.

    Not sure could also be the camber angle that plays in. This in particular when the tires are cold.

    A friend has the same noise in his 2014 E220. Very quiet but definitely there. If I hear of what it was I will post.

    Thanks for responses. If it continues I guess I need to go back to the dealers.
