I just finished replacing all of bushings in the front and rear suspension of my 420 SEL as well as the motor mounts, ball joints, and steering components. Thanks to everyone who has posted information on these topics - I found them very useful. The Performance Products spring compressor worked very well - no problems. I no longer have the ominous squeaking noise emanating from the underside of the vehicle whenever I am on the road.

On to my question: the interior has its share of noises as well. I have found several links concerning this topic but wondered if more information were available. A product called leatherique was recommended, as was silicon for the leather portion of the interior. Does anyone have other ideas on what to use and where to apply the products in order to alleviate the general squeaking associated with the leather/door panels, etc.?

Thanks in advance.

Regarding interior squeaking on S class cars, from my last one I found that using some silicone works well. The rear doors on my past car squeaked and I found lightly applying to the doorsills and underneath the respective matching surfaces worked well.

If the seatbelt area is squeaking it is often, in my experience from the seats pushing again the plastic seatbelt enclosures. This is cause by the seat cushion padding needing replaced. Once replaced it raises the whole cushion height and no longer rubs.

In the short-term you can use a light silicone spray can with a spray tube to shoot a blast into the offending areas. It is best, of course, to use a lot of rags to catch any drips and over spray.

Hope this helps,
