did you weld A pillar of your W124?

How many of you welded reinforcement panel to A pillar? How much did it cost?

All E-Class.

Problem: Clacking noise at A-pillars near engine hood hinges.

Possible cause, suggested repair:

a. Weld seams between reinforcement panel and A-pillar missing. Weld panel to A-pillar.
b. Check wheel house paneling behind reinforcement panel for cracks. MIG weld cracks.

very common fix especially for W124-126-201 cars driven on rough roads. Squeaks and rattles coming from the right and left dash corners on bumps and hard turns are the main symptoms of this problem.
