    Clean and lube the latches. There are 2....one on each side of the radiator support. Sometimes the loops on the hood need to shimmed. MB sells shims for this purpose. I had to do my passenger side.

  16. Scary rear end noise 98 SL500

    R129 SL-Class
    I had the same thing. Turns out noise is from the front and was due to extremely bad feathering / cupping of the front tires. They had been running too low for too long. Issue is amplified when it is wet out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
