Post New to Forum-Noise in rear of S500.

My name is Dempsey and I currently own a 2002 S500, a 1994 E320 and a 1989 260E. I have previously owned a 1984 E300 Turbo (bought new) and a 1979 450SL.

I have done all my own work on all of these wonderful cars and have turned wrenches since 1959. Somehow mechanics don't treat the cars they work on as if they were their own. Hard to find that kind of mechanic anymore. Put in a rebuilt transmission in the SL (tight quarters) and the 260E (also rebuilt the head).

I love the S500 and believe it it is a top performer on the road. Just got back from a 1K trip and averaged 25.6 MPG, a major achievement for a big luxury sedan.

Only problem I'm having is the S500 has a rattling noise that comes from the rear of the car and only happens when moving. Sounds like one of the air suspension/shocks may have a loose mounting. Anyone have this experience?
