Customer Question
CLK 350 Convertible 2006...

CLK 350 Convertible 2006 ... yellow engine light is on and the car is making click/creaking noises when turning at a crawl speed. if you could help that would be great

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

Just brought it last week ... care is in beautiful condition but have just noticed it over the last few days

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Convertible yourself? What have you tried so far?

Where from...front of car

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Cant get the glove box open, it is stuck thats all :)
