#1376 of 1636 C230K Squeaking Sky Roof - Success!!!!
Feb 21, 2003 (12:04 pm)
Today, I picked up my new C230K from the dealer after they called to indicate that they had effectively fixed the problem. Just wanted to say that Mercedes is on top of the problem (which should no longer be a problem) since the construction of the sunroof cartridge has been modified since its introduction in 2002. Mercedes has a technical service bulletin (TSB) out to the dealers advising them how to fix the sunroof squeak in vehicles not fitted with the new design.
So far, no squeaks, just pure quiet. Now I can really enjoy driving this car ... it is going to be a fun one!

I'm so glad to read that the problem has been fixed. I really didn't want to think about what would have happened if that roof squeaked just one more time! Happy Benzing.

About the 17 hp gain, while the MSRP sheet that came with our '00 sedan (it wasn't actually attached to the car) says 215 hp--like you'd expect--the C's manual says 221 hp. Now, the E320 has has 221 hp so the engine obviously can be tuned that way.
I can't explain the discrepancy. Whatever the rating, we don't need any extra power (a C35 might be fun tho). After the break-in, I was was pretty well impressed after the first spin in the mountains: the performance of the C320 up hills at such an easy rpm was amazing, and the downhill engine braking by tipping the shifter added to the feeling of power under complete control.

Glad they solved the problem! My experiences over the last 8 years of owning MB vehicles have been similar - when there is a problem, they fix it and make it right.
Fyi, dealers I have used include those in Ray Catena in Edison, New Jersey; Holloway Motors in Manchester, NH; and RBM in Altanta, GA. I'm about to use Holloway Motors again, as I have moved back to the southern New Hampshire area.
Have a safe and fun Spring and Summer enjoying your car!
