Rattling sound

My 85 190E 2.3 (125 K miles) has developed a loud rattle. It comes from the driver side, probably front, whenever the car goes over any bumps on the road. On a smooth road, there's no rattle at all. Also, If I am turning (either side), then the rattle is not there, even if the road is bumpy. The rattle has been there the last few months, but over the last few weeks it has gotten worse. Also, and this may just be my imagination, the rattle feels louder on colder days.

What could it be?

Rattling sounds can be quite fun to detect ...

I had a rattling sound which I thought was coming from the driver's side dashboard but turned out to be a loose screw in the side mirror. I heard the rattle, and held on to the side mirror - and thats when I knew it was the side mirror. Screw tightened, and the rattle is now gone.

my '85 300CD had a rattle when going over bumps coming from the drivers' side front. Turned out to be a worn ball joint on the tie rod. Easy and inexpensive fix.

Good luck,
