I had the sunroof up while joyriding this afternoon in my '95 E320 (58K Miles). I noticed that on tight turns (yes, I was pushing it a bit) I could hear the sunroof creaking a bit. I know that all cars flex a bit as they're driven, particularly on turn; however, I also know MB's have a reputation for being tight. Is this normal?

Don't know if I can provide specific advice here. I can relate to the joyriding; my dog Cooper (considers himself the owner of the wagon while I provide driver services) and I went for a joyride today as well. I don't do that very frequently but I must do it more. Anyway, the wagon is very structurally sound, I believe, but every now and then if I hit a bump just right I hear a sharp crack noise in the left side of the body structure (like a rock has just bounced off the door or something). I'm not worried about it but I can't explain it. If it gets louder or more frequent I'll take it to the dealer (its a Starmark car) and have them look into it (although last time I had it to the dealer it took them 9 working days to find a broken wire so I'm not real sure they'd be able to find this). Anyway, keep up the joyriding,

Everyone with a 124 can perform this neat the sunroof while you slam the last door with all of the windows shut. The sunroof trailing edge will pop up a little for just a second, but you can definitely see it happen. The first time I saw it, I was sure something was wrong, but it appears to be designed to relieve pressure in the cabin I guess.

You should not get enough body flex to cause this.

Good luck,

My 1986 300E has some creaks also when conering hard and when I hit about 90 mph I get a small door seal leak in the upper jamb side of my doors. When I slow down it goes away I figure this is flex in the body is there anything I can do to fix it or is my body just getting to old.
