i got a 92 400se

recently, i took offf the driver side rear tire to get a nail taken out and patched. came back put back on again. now, with the weather being colder when driving around its squeeking! loud. like its a real old car, it only squeaks in the area where i took off the tire! no where else.

second problem. the driver side door is not "sucking" in anymore. is this expensive to fix? i think the passenger side is wanting to do so as well 8O

third. few months back i had a new belt put on my benz techs. i've had to take it two times cause it would go lose and/or squeak. now, its squeaking again. does it take time to adjust?

im thinking of selling this car. as they are prone for problems :roll:

1. regarding the closing aide of the door, go to the trunk and pull out number 9 fuse and put back (located on the right side of the rear fender.

2. belt squick, check if the belt tensioner or the alternator is loose, sometimes these parts tend to loosen up by it self due to vibration you may need to put a lock washer to prevent the nut from loosening.

3. tire squick, nothing to do with your changing of tire, check the disc pad (brake pad) thats the only cause of the noise not unless the rims or wheel is hitting some parts (detect thru checking if there are any marks on the inner side of the magwheel. (do elimination rounds to be able to find out ) also you may want to buy a can of brake cleaner spray and spray the caliper where the disc pad (brake pad) is located, let dry and test drive.
