Post My First Post, My First Mercedes and My First Rattle - SL55 AMG

Hi all,

Looks like a great site so compliments on that to begin.

I'm Rob Pooley from Bucks (wheres Cilla!?). Picked up my first Mercedes a few weeks back and am loving the experience. The SL55's power is awesome. I am quite an impulsive buyer, I had not even test driven the thing so was gob smacked at how much metal that engine moves so quickly! ...and the noise Beautiful.

I unfortunately didn't get to take it over to Le Mans (which I have been to for the last 8 years now - great event, everyone should go once) but was happy to only see one other SL55 all weekend. 911s are as common as Nissan Bluebirds in Bradford, F360s are like Ford Mondeos, but to see an AMG was rare. I like that - exclusive.

The only one negative is a rattle or clicking noise that has developed since purchasing the car. It's only when the hood is up, and it's a clicking type noise that is getting progressively worse. The point has come where any mere stone or uneven surface causes the clicking and it's a pain in the arse! I don't want a pain in the arse so I need to get it sorted! I have a tier one Mercedes warranty, so can use that if required, but wondered if anyone has experienced such an issue before? I'm hoping it's not unique to me and there is a quick fix which one of you knowledgable folk can point me towards.

I hope to gradually become a part of this community. All taken into account, my relationship with Mercedes has been a pleasurable thus far. I hope it continues that way.

I look forward to hearing from you.
