W211 E200 Squeaking rear suspension


Recommended Posts

Hi peeps. 6 months into my ownership of the E200, and the rear suspension has developed a squeak which can be heard from the cabin and out of the car. 

A few observations:

1) Squeak comes only after the rear passenger seats were sat on. It goes away after a few days without passengers at the back. 

2) Can be heard while driving or pushing on the rear while stationery. 

3) Did a bounce test, seems fine. Although my wife and I felt the rear was a little stiff at times. Though that can be subjective.

I brought the car to a few workshops and have conflicting outcomes. One said it was shock absorbers (running on bilstein), and the other said it was bushings.

I uploaded a video, hopefully it can viewed.  Hoping to get alternative opinions before I commit on the repairs.

No lah bro.

Just happened to had the same issue previously. So share share.

The car is due for service this weekend, and i thought of getting the workshop to check it out at the same time. Strange enough, after days of commute without passengers in the rear, the squeaking stopped..

Servicing complete, got the boss to check the ball joints but he said everything was fine. All he did next was tighten the suspension components and applied lubricant (I know this is not the proper fix). The sound was gone for a short while, but due to the heavy downpour on the very same day, the squeaks could still be heard at some point, though less obvious.
