    Hi

    I have a 2010 E250 cabrio that has gained a few interior rattles over the last year or so.The door cards squeak as the car goes over uneven road.

    I'm going to remove both door cards, fix acoustic foam to the inside, put foam tape around all plastic to plastic contact points and fit new clips.

    Was thinking of doing this to the A pillar too.

    Does anyone know how to remove the A pillar on the coupe/cabrio? is it safe to add foam to the inside and areas of plastic to plastic contact of this part?

    Additionally does anyone know how to remove the rear interior side pannels? Might do these too if they are as easu to remove as the door cards.

    Lastly does anyone know the type of clipsI'll need? Several types appear on google.

    Be interested to know if anyone else has done such a fix
    Thanks

    Being a cabrio with the frameless glass, the doors do move around more. I would first try lubricating all the rubber trims around the doors and hood and glass, with this gummipledge product that everyone talks about, or Johnsons baby oil.

    Also on the E class the seat belt buckle rubs against the leather and squeaks as you drive, so worth checking that also.
