HEY! i need some help, windshield problem!

i have a noise, sort of a vibration/flutter/sqeak right where my windshield and wiper kind of come together.

my windshield was installed in may '02. when the weather started getting cold this 'noise' appeared.

last week i had the installer re-do it.
he said there was a problem, but wouldn't say what exactly...

the noise is back. it's bugging the living doo-doo out of me, it's the only noise in my car.

these people did NOT remove the wiper assembly. when i asked why, he said it wasn't neccessary.

i say it is.

does anyone know what the correct mercedes spec procedure is??? i really NEED to know, PLEASE....

thanks

peter

cowl cover


Try taping it down and driving it, the early 210's would flap and you replaced the cover assembly on the r/h side. I did have a 208 cabrio that the center trim over the glass would flap around 60, replacing the attaching hardware resolved that one.

The trick to wind noises is isolating it, tape down the area and if the noise is gone, slowly remove sections until it returns, the last section you uncovered is your culprit. Dont be suprised if there is more than one item flapping, esp. after glass replacement.

thanks for your reply.

my problem is not a wind noise. also the trim is properly in place.

there is a definite rattlr/vibration and it is located where the windshield slides in at the wiper assembly.

does the factory m.b. procedure tell you to remove the wiper assembly PRIOR to the install?

I had an annoying rattling sound coming from my windshield area that I first thought was due to a loose wiper (strangely, my right wiper sometimes gets hung up on the lip of the hood instead of retracting behind it as it should -- so the wiper is definitely loose), except that turning on the wipers did nothing to change/eliminate the noise. So you may want to try that to make sure it's really the wipers that are the culprit.

Then I thought it was something in the A/C vent that got loose, but that wasn't it.

What it WAS was a 1-inch long piece of thin rubber that was poking out from under the windshield trim in the right upper-hand corner of the windshield. When I drove above a certain speed, it would bang against the windshield and make much more noise than I had thought such a small little thing could do.

I tore the offending piece off (after I couldn't stuff it back under the trim), and the car's been quiet since....
