Question about 1993 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz 300 Class

1 Answer

Front end squeals and rattling sound front left wheel

The squeal sounds like shocks need to be oiled or something. They were just replaced. I was told the rattling sound was a loose boot near left front wheel area. Any ideas on the seriousness of these problems? The car has 193000 miles. I was told these can get as high as 350ooo miles if taken care of, is that true. New owner of a 1993 Mercedes 300 E.

My brake pads have been changed and the wheels continue to squeal. They rattle and squeak when driving and braking


it just sounds like a poor quality job...the proper way to do a brake job is a high quality set of front pads such as a bendix or raybestes gold line pads,, then have the front brake rotors machined an a amco brake lathe or even better a on the car brake lathe. make sure all brake caliper hardware is properly cleaned an lubercated or replaced with new hardware....then have the rear brakes adjusted( adjust only if ur car has rear drum brakes...rear disc brakes r selfadjusting

When i turn my wheel to the left only my front right tire makes a nosie


if its a clicking sound only when turning then it sounds like a bad cv joint that needs replacing.replacing the complete half shaft is the best way to fix this.if its a squealing noise then the front end components should be checked and possibly the alignment.

My right front tire makes a squealing noise from

Squealing sound - front driver's side brakes


This sounds like a wear indicator( a metal tab on the brake pad) is doing its job, warning you that the brake pads need replacement soon. you can bend the wear indicators away from the rotor so they won't make contact. This will stop the annoying noise. Replace the pads and check the brakes soon. Brake pads should always be changed on both wheels at thge same time, so change the other front pads also.

Intermittent squeal Nissan Primera Y reg 1.8


That would be the Wheel Bearings or the Brakes. Check the Brake Pads first for Wear, If they are OK, Then you will need to Pull the Rotors and Replace the Bearings.
