My 2001 R170 SLK 320 has developed a loud rattle in the roof when driving at slow speed on less than smooth asphalt. I also found a small piece of rubber extrusion on the trunk floor that looks like a piece of door seal about 1.5 inches long with fuzzy flocking on one side. I can't see where it might have come from, but suspect its dislodgment from its original home may be the cause of my rattle.

Anybody have any ideas????

Just refitted the rubbers, sprayed the seals with silicone spray and much quieter, still a few creaks but the bad rattle is fixed.

many Thanks.
