Question about 1997 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
I have a similar problem. When the car is warm I start to get noise when on the move and change of possision of the car (tilting). It is a clunk - clunk noise. When cold no noise at all. It's like somthing is lose. I have changed the shock absorbers and all mufflers on exhaust systmem (first thinking it was the exhaust being completely loose. They needed a shift anyhow, though it was not a solution regarding to the nois that anoyes me. I can provoke the noise by reversing (5kmh) and hiting the brake. The noise can also come when changing gear (automatic). The car was 11 years and driven 110 000 km when this noise first appared, now 15 and 150'. I think it has to do with the suspention of the motor it self. The ruber warming up sagging and then opening for this noise. I have had the car at a dealer garage an a lokal F1 mecanic has also checked it out. Both said the car was safe for driving. But could not find the solution. The first could not hear anything, the later said after pointing out the sound it had to be a lot worse before a good identification could be made.
Any suggestion on a solution?
