Has M-B Quality Gotten So Bad...

that M-B was forced to issue this DTB bulletin on 17 Feb 04:



Order No.: P-B-00.45/77

Group: 00


Subject: All Passenger Models
Service Kit for Rectifying Squeaking, Creaking and
Tearing Noises



"Effective immediately, non M-B lubricants or other lubrication aids for repairing squeaking, creaking and tearing noise may not be used on M-B passenger cars. Only M-B lubricants are permitted for use. These lubricants are specially tested for suitability with the interior materials of the vehicle. In the future only the following lubricants may be used on M-B passenger vehicles:

002 989 06 51 Locking cylinder lubrication, spray
002 989 07 51 Multipurpose grease, for metal
000 989 38 60 Special sliding compound, grease
000 989 35 60 Special sliding compound, spray

000 989 36 60 Special sliding compound, liquid oil


A service kit is available, "Noise Damping Service Kit" A000 580 03 50, to ensure the best possible application of these products. The service kit contains all authorized M-B lubricants was well as an application table for the best method of rectifying squeaking, creaking and tearing noise. This kit also contains a description of the most common felt materials and their quality, which is the preferred material for rectifying rattling noises.

This service kit is part of the normal workshop equipment and therefore cannot be claimed through the warranty process."


The bulletin closes by stating that the Noise Damping Service Kits are

"in a critical supply situation and will be limited, please see the PAC weekly status report on parts availability status and delivery expectation."

So what's your point? They release a kit to take care of interior noises and some how MB quality is in the dumpster? Oh, well.

Creaky Door Panels

I too was cursed with the creaky lower passenger door panel on my 126. A poster suggested that I use a leather conditioner on the door sill and the lower part of the door. I used Lexol applied liberally on both and the gremlin went away. Give it a shot.

Lexol. Haven't tried that.

I HAVE tried lithium grease, silicon spray, different waxes. They all work but only for about 3 days.

I'll leather conditioner a try.

The creaking sound is typically the door panel rubbing against the plastic door sill. Sticking a strip of velcro (the fuzzy part) on the bottom part of the panel which contacts the door sill will solve this.

Yes, I purchased some felt a while ago which is still sitting in my trunk. Unsure as to how I will apply it, how much and where. This will be my last resort.
