The Mercedes CLS class are a line of executive-size sedans manufactured by German auto maker Mercedes-Benz beginning in late 2010. The second generation Mercedes-Benz C218 is the flagship model of this line, with elegant interior comforts sure to please even most picky consumers. As luxurious as these automobiles are, some Mercedes owners have experienced problems with rattling in the interior of their vehicles.
Frequently, Mercedes-Benz C218 class owners report the fascia in the interior produces squeaks or rattles, even on brand new cars. This issue does seem to be temperature dependent, especially evident at 20 degrees or below. The noise may emanate from around the command control panels, or around the vents or in the dashboard itself. If ignored over time, the noises may become louder and the rattling can cause serious damage to the interior of the vehicle.
As these noises are often difficult to trace, it is not recommended to try to track down the source of the problem at home. The cause of the issue could be loose bolts in the dashboard, gaps in the fascia, or loose connections between parts underneath the face of the dash. These tasks are difficult to undertake and are best left to a professional.
If you are experiencing this issue, the best course of action is to take your Mercedes-Benz C218 CLS to your nearby Mercedes-Benz service professional. Their experienced technicians will be able to find the source of the squeak or rattle quickly and make the necessary repairs to ensure a quiet ride in your Mercedes-Benz C218.
