[SOLVED] Rattle from the engine compartment in low rpm (220d)

Hi,

I just want to share a fix for a terrible rattle that drove me nuts for more than a year. I drive a 2016 220d that had (hopefuly) a rattle coming from the engine compartment. It was only audible in 1200-1500 rpm especially when it was cold outside . Higher was the load the more it rattled, I always rather downshifted manually while going uphill to rech the rpm in which I could not hear it.

I knew it had to be something that was connected to the engine and after a year or so I finally found it. It was a hose that comes from the engine and presses some cables against the plastic fender. A bit of felt tape fixed it.

Just a sidenote - do not be afraid of fixing the rattles yourself, it only needs felt tape and experimenting. Do not rely on the stealership, they will always tell you they could not reproduce it.

Which exaxt hose you are refering to? Check the clearance between the fender and the cable (or that metal holder attached to the piping. If there us no sufficient clearance aplly felt tape.

The culprit is the aluminium piping that moves together with the hose that comes from the engine.

Less subtle than that after 2 years with this annoying rattle. The dealer made the fix for rattle in dashboard and after that they could not hear anything strange. Suddenly realising this was vibrating pipes during driving, stopped and ripped up the cover on the side in engine copartment and pulled the pipes a couple of millimeters out of their position. Back with the cover and back in the car. No rattle!

We can't be the only ones with this problem so how come that it is a surprise to MB. Took the extra work to pass the dealer an they responded basically “interesting, maybe worth while noting down”

In my car it is suficient clearence between the fender and the cable,i do not think the soud is comming from there. i made a video.
at 1000-1200 rpd it rattles and the floor vibrates,it does not matter if the car is in P,D or N. Any ideas?

I don't know where that rattle is coming from but I noticed you have engine temperature displayed on your screen in Progressive mode. Mine doesn't have this and I wish it did. I wonder why the difference... maybe it's a petrol/diesel thing...?
