Hello, I have an 06 CLK63 Cab. Recently I've hears a metal creaking coming.form above the sun visor on the driver side. I think it might be the piece on top part of the windshield, before the top. I think it might be flexing since I only hear it at high speeds. Any one else heard anything similar?.
Re: Metal creeking noise coming from above windshield
Hree trips to two different dealers finally fixed it. Above the windshield there is a piece of molding that covers the top of the windshield. The clips holding that on were not clipped on properly and the piece was separating from the windshield at high speeds causing a medal creaking. Most likely happened when I had the windshield replaced.

look up in the corner of the visor where it mounts.. usually there is a small screw there .. raise the visor up in place and tighten the screw..it should stay up..if not ..use a bit of velcro on the visor and the headliner above it..cheap fix but it works..also invest in a windshield cover they are only a few bucks and work for other uses also.. they make a great emergency mat if you need to look under the car on naty ground(rain, snow, mud,etc)
The firewall on vehicles is the metal front of the cab between you in the drivers seat and the engine. Wiring cables and steering column are put through openings in it to access. The term "firewall" comes from this metal forming a barrier for protection from heat, noise and possible fire from the engine.
My driver's side visor inexplicably fell out the other day and I had to re-install it.
The metal frame has two openings in close proximity for the visor mounting. One is triangular and the other is a hole.
The teardrop portion of the visor has a post which fits into the above
mentioned hole. The visor arm is attached to a piece which has three
There is an opening visible in the last photo from the OP. I used a
flat tip screwdriver and pressed IN on the tab inside the opening. This
"dis-connects" the two pieces and allows the teardrop portion and the
triangular lugs to move separately.
So, to install visor, press the tab, release the two portions, align
the post with the hole and turn visor until three lugs line up with the
points of the triangle. Push assembly flush with headliner and move
visor back and forth until you hear a "click" and the two pieces are
connected again. When I did it the click came when I moved the visor
far forward (towards windshield). This position was approximately 45
degrees with respect to the line of the top of the windshield. I would
imagine the dis-assembly is the opposite procedure.
I fabricated my own brackets for my 2004 Ford Explorer to mount (or should I say re-mount) my sun visors after they both crumbled and fell on us. I cut some thin metal (tin I think) and put 5 layers together to form the bracket. If there is any interest, I'll upload some pictures and instructions over the week-end to show how to install it. I'm thinking about offering to make these for $12+ shipping for one bracket or $20+shipping for a pair.
inside the sun visor there is a spring which is moving to side when you push down the spring pushes side so it will keep down when you want to push to the normal possition spring releces and keep to that possition any way i would like to advice you to replace sun visor.
