ML 350 2010 model, left rear seat creaking with any vehicle…

Customer Question
ML 350 2010...

ML 350 2010 model , left rear seat creaking with any vehicle movement, seems to be coming from the top left latch mechanism. Just wondering if this is a common problem and what is the remedy?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '10 Mercedes?

Ml 350

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

I haven't started yet, and I was just wondering if it was a common problem

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Sorry you just lost me, I was talking about the rear seats

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

The seat bolts need checked to make sure they are tight.In some cases the hold down bolts or clips are removed or released and reinstalled to resolve this fault here as tension on them can cause this noise and performing this can resolve this issue here.

The other thing I have done is used an anti squeak tape around the mounting or latch areas/striker to correct this fault.

I would also have the seat checked for any broken brackets or a damaged latch or striker itself to make sure this isnt a defect needing repaired or replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
