Look closely at the latch mechanism. There is a nylon/plastic like material on the latch that buffers the sound when the door closes. If it’s worn out it still opens and closes fine but with a clunky/metallic noise.

Mind you this is pure speculation on my part

😉

I'd sure like to find a way to replace that nylon part on the latch.

I think that they're called the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt.

Or the KBA, for short. Given how strict privacy laws are in Germany (UK is peanuts in comparison), that's probably not going to work either. AMG or Benz themselves may be more helpful though. Good luck either way :)

I'll avoid the DVLA, so!
Luckily, the car was only in the UK for 18 months, with the previous owner.
I'm going to try AMG, and see if they've any records for the car, and perhaps the German DVLA.

Apparently many a pranged 116 had the doors still opening perfectly after the accident, and surely this must be attributed to the superior design of the latch mechanism.

Actually, the door latches were specifically designed to do just that - open perfectly even in a major frontal collision.

I agree with you regarding the 116 but it doesn't apply to our other Mercedes. Both doors have the same fittings and yet sound so different.

The fuse box will have the separate radio fuse only if a radio was a fitted option. Mine had no factory radio and therefore no fuse. When one was eventually fitted a fuse was fitted under the dash. At least that is the way I understand it.
