E class
On my eclass the suspensions both front and back seems to make a lot of squeeky noises, much more than my old w210.

The car has just pasted it's MOT with flying colour so the bushes etc cant be that bad.

Is a problem with s211???

I didn't have any suspension issues with my 2004 S211.

Perhaps a local indie could have a look for you.

Hi I have a similar noise/creak on the offside of my E240. It has just been for it's MoT today and nothing was picked up. It went to MB 6 months ago and even though they could hear the noise they could find nothing wrong with it.

E 320 (1999) squeaks

Coincidentally I took my estate (passed MOT recently)into my local topclass garage yesterday for same search. They checked everything, did plenty of spraying around and checking for any looseness. They concluded that the susp bushes would be particularly dry in this weather but o/wise aok. Advised wait till gets worse then need to look at replacing a bush or two. So Perfect silence in side, but embarrassing squeaks outside!!

Now..... anyone know how to re-tension the flexible cover over the load space? It won't wind in very far.

Normally the lower balljoints can cause a squeak, and the torque arm bushes can turn in their ally case and squeak too.

my c class passed its mot but sqeeked going over bumps and uneven ground . An indie gave it a service and found slight wear in one lower ball joint. I replaced it and squeek vanished! Just my story hope it helps.

Red rubber lube works wonders on the bushes.

Roll bar rubber bushes, drop links all can squeak, when it is the bottom swivel this can be hard to detect as rust fill the joint, they only way to check these is with a good iron bar to lever the ball in the socket.
