05 G55 rear door squeak problem. please help

9446 Views 10 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  sakhalin76

just got my long dreamed of 2005 G55 GE with only 25k miles on. Condition is very close to exceptional in and out.. BUT, when driving at low speeds especially while turning, can hear the definite squeaking sound coming from the rear door.

Greased everything - did not help

was playing with the Door Strikers position alignment, to the point when the door would barely close (way too tight).. - whould help for a couple of days, then the problem comes back.. :crybaby2:

Please help, maybe it;s time to change Door Strikers? or there is some other ideas?

Had a similar squeak. Bought some of the high-dollar grease that Vlad sells. Applied it to the rubber/metal interlocking parts, just below the latch, and to the pin/ball socket on the opposite side of the door. Not a problem since.

Before that, I tried lubricating these parts with other products, lubricating the entire weather striping and fiddling around with the door panels. Vlad's "Mercedes Silicone Paste", applied in these strategic areas was the ultimate fix.

Good luck,
Thanks for the advise, I am now trying to find the magic silicone and cannot locate this place - VLAD. Please let me know, what is VLAD, online store? maybe web site? Tried to Google it, but did not seem to find anything relevent.

Vlad is the proprietor of four by four (remove the spaces). Great resource for hard-to-find accessories and specific G-class knowledge.

The paste is located in the "Tools" section.
