For several years, my ML was making the most horrible creaking sounds when going over bumps or in turns. The noise was so loud and annoying, it could be heard by pedestrians on the sidewalk. It was somewhat intermittent, but mostly when the roads were damp. On a dry day or a rainy day, it was usually quiet. After many trips to the dealer and even several calls to MBZ corporate, and most every front suspension part being replaced, I finally found the source of the noise. It was the hood latch! A little white grease and some adjustment took care of it.
