The parking brakes on the rear wheels can get rusty, because the drum brake does not self-clean itself as efficiently disc brake. This happened to my 400E, I just removed the rear discs and exposed the parking brakes, gave it a through spray with brake cleaner, and greased the joints with brake paste, then readjusted it, the noise was gone since then.

Still missing the days with the Benz, it kept me busy.
