My newly-purchased 1992 300D has an interesting issue with the power
Specifically, the sunroof has the forward-backward movement and the
up-down movement, and the switch is made in such a way to mimic the
movement of the roof.
However, the "down" option doesn't work...and rather makes the roof go
"up". Pushing it "forward" will bring the roof forward, and then up.
Basically anything other than "back" will move it "up".
If I release the switch while moving it "forward", I can stop the roof
before it goes "up".
Any ideas on what's causing it? Seems like a bad switch, which should be
pretty easy to replace.
On a different note, I occasionally hear intermittent ticking noises
that appear to be coming from the rear axle area. They appear to
correspond to each tire revolution. Occasionally they stop, but come
back either in a few minutes or the next time I get into the car to
drive it. Not sure what's causing it, as I can't really localize the
sound. It doesn't seem to be tied to any particular driving habit (i.e.
it happens when I'm going fast, slow, etc.), road condition, or other
external condition. Very odd.
