2003 E500 Engine Noise?


I just took delivery on a Metallic Silver 2003 E500 w/ keyless go, sport package, tire pressure mon, multicontour seats, E2, CD changer, and heated seats.

When I am at a red light or just parked, the engine has a faint diesel engine sound. It is difficult to describe but, it has whining, click click sound. It also makes the same sound when I am accelerating from a stop. Does anyone elses E500 make this engine noise? You have to turn the radio off and keep all of your windows closed to hear it.

The dealer also told me that the multicontour seat option came with the seat massagers, but my seats did not come with it....

Thanks in advance for your info!!!

The story I hear at my dealer is that the noise is from the motor mounts and the undertray paneling (causing the noise to be amplified). They say M-B is working on a fix.

'03 E500 Engine Noise

I have an '03 E500 as well. No Keyless but the same "diesel" sound. What have you done about it?
