Absorber / Spring
Hi,
i have a problem on my suspension. When I drive the car especially in the morning I can hear a funny sound at the back especially I go through a road bumber. Sound like ekk,ekk,ekkk...sakit telinga dengar naik mercedes bunyi macam ni. do have any idea where it comes from? The other day mechanic check and said my absorber need to be replace as there is a leak from both at the back. Should I do that and what sort of absorber do I need as mine is W203 sport edition

Thanks

Sham.H

Re: Absorber / Spring
Bro, I'm not sure if the Shock/Spring for W140 & W203 are similar, BUT the 'Descriptions' you mentioned were the same as mine.

It happen like months ago, and I finally ask my mechanic to remove the coil/spring. Then I saw 'MARKS' of contact/abrasion on my 'spring' with a nut (bunyi sebelah belakang kanan & only spring kanan kena gesek).

Solution...swap the Left Spring to the Right (vice versa) and the irritating sound is gone.

You may want to try this first but since the leaking is there, I suggest you changed your shock too. Hope this helps.

I had the squeeky sound as well with my W124 recently, I didn't really take much notice of it as it was memang krta lama. However during my last service the mechanic noticed that my rear lower joint/knuckle was worned out and advice that it be changed. After that no more tikus sound

Rear lower joint/knuckle

Hi Sham,

I read few forums and some of them mentioned bilstein absorber and they said it much better than monroe.. don't know any shops in malaysia carry that brand. I also want to change mine and the price here is about 95 (not sure a piece or a pair).

Or other option, try to ask Dr Gan..he know everything..:p

cheers
Gan

If The Shock Absorber Has Leaks ...
It's Obviously Can See ... The Oily Mark From The S/absorber
Because the Oil ... Can Not Be Dry..ed ...

If That Is The Case ....
You Need To Replace It Immediately ...
Before The Tyres Worn Out @ Waving (Up and Down)...

If The Absorber Is Seriously Leaks ...
You May Feel the Rear Portion is Unstable / Bumppy ..
The Whole Car Load On The Spring ... without any 'SHOCK' Absorbed ..
it cause the Tyre To Wear unevenly ... up and down as mentioned above ...

btw , Is The Ekk..Ekk .. Ekkk ... squeaking sound ...
is it Only Come At The HUMP ..
Specially In The Morning ..??
how About While Driving At The 'Uneven' Road ..??

If Yes ... You May Need To Check All Bushes Condition
Like ... Hub Bush / Rear Lower Arm Joint ...
the rear tie rod joint ...
the subframe mountings ... etc

try To Re-tighten all screws and nuts ...
just counter check for any Loosed ...
specially the shock absorber Screws and Nuts
which tightenning at rear lower arm

I Come Across On a S class W220 ..
the Noise was due to the Lower Arm Screws ..
improper tightenning Torque ...

all are possible make the Squeaking Sound .!.!.!.

Re: Absorber / Spring
Dr Gan,
You're utterly brilliant. Thanks for your comments.
So in this case I should changed my rear absorber as they have started leaking. How much would it cost for both rear?

When I did my merz health check early this year the mechanic had told me that both rear spring will get broken due to rust. Does this cause the 'funny' sound 'eekk,eekk'?

I have another problem. Bila masuk gear 1 and 2 as my car is manual, selalu sangkut, sangkut..maksudnya minyak and 'cluth' tak sama. DO i need to retune both? malulah, macam budk baru belajar bawa kereta sangkut2 and kalau stop kat bukit especially at traffic light, kereta mengaum utuk main both clutch & minyak. Nampak macam kereta pinjam aja :)

hope to get your feedback and advise soon.

Thanks

Sham.H

How Much The Rear S/Absorber Cost ....
Sorry ... Today Is SUNDAY ...
Office Closed .... Tomorrow Let You Know ..

btw ... The Spring Rusted ...
is possible Causing the NOISE ... As Bro Tony Adviced

But The Spring BROKEN ... I Haven't Come Across Yet .. So Far ..

The Spring is A Very Tough Material ...
one thing for sure
It Won't / Never Be Broken ...

If The Spring Broken ...
What Will Happen To Your Car Condition ...????
Unbelieveable ...

M/Benz sure Kena TEMBAK ... haha

The gear Jerk #sangkut-sangkut# ... is consider JERK ...!!
When you Release the Clutch ... (Manual Gear System)

This can Be Consider The Clutch System 'JUDDLE'
Is This Happened ... All The Time ...??...

If YES ... Check The Clutch Condition ...
Probably Had Worn Out ... (slippages)
need to replace the clutch kit set
including clutch plate , cover and bearing ...

If NOT ... Your Clutch System Is WET ...
Is This Happened During The Rainning day
or when your car cross over WATER ...???...

If This was the Case ....
don't worry ... is NOT a big issue ...

NO tuning Need .... You May Check With The STAR ...
and Refer To Any Fault Code Stored ...???? ...

Huge thanks for a quick reply.

kalau kena tukar cluth system how much will it cost me?

Thanks

I changed all my springs to an after-market set recently n was surprised to find out that one of d old ones had broken...literally



So, here u go Dr Gan...your 1st exposure to a broken Merc spring.

D mechanic was asking me how long have I been driving around with a broken spring n if I have heard any noise while driving.

Being a 9-year old car of course there r noises here n there...but alhamdullillah nothing untoward occur while unknowingly driving around with one broken spring
