My '95 E320 wagon has an annoying problem - the doors all seem to squeak.
When opening or closing they emit a low pitched squeak that I can't get rid
of. I've tried WD-40, but that almost seems to make the noise worse. Is
there a suggested penetrating oil? Or something that I can do (short of
removing the doors) to resolve this minor irritation?
You have to replace the door check. That's the only way to fix it as it is
broken... door check is that metal sticking out of your door to hold door
position and prevent the wind from ripping your door out.
Cheap part but take time to put it in...
Make sure it is the "door stop" that is the problem since on most MB you
have to take off the door panel to get to the third screw that holds this
item on. 2 screws are visible on the "jamb" side of the door but there is
another one on the door panel itself. About $13 part from autouhaousaz.com
Good luck wolf
