Mine does that, but I won't claim it's normal. Might be, but there are gears in there which are known to fail, and this may be a common symptom that gear failure is ahead.

I don't worry about it; if it breaks the fixes are well documented.

Ok, my turn.

What are you guys using to clean/condition your outside rubber? I'm talking about around the windows, hood, trunk, etc.? I've gotten a little wax on them so now they have a white haze and want to remove it and bring a little life back into the rubber. Is everyone just running to the local store and picking up some "back to black" or is there something else that might work better?

I use Griot's Garage Rubber Prep to clean the rubber. I then use Vinylex to protect it.

does anyone know how the carpeted plastic interior cover pieces in the passenger footwell fasten?
I see the metal piece at the back which slots in ... but in the front (ie towards door frame)?

There's a screw isn't there? Toward the edge of the door frame. Look (feel) closely, it may be hidden in the carpet.

Back to the rubber trim question, I thought virtually nothing removed wax from the rubber. Any other suggestions that is Autozone store easy and not mail order?

Greg - You can use Prep-All or similar paint prep solvent to remove wax residue. Its readily available at your local hardware store.

I used an old toothbrush and some silicone spray (in my case Autoglym Vinyl & Rubber Care, Armor All will do the same) to remove some fresh wax residue from the rubber between the front bumper and the body. I had to apply it a few times, along with agitation from the toothbrush, and it eventually removed the signs of wax residue.

After I had that small lapse, I proactively worked over the rubber pieces with the toothbrush and silicone spray before I started waxing in any area. The fresh application of silicone spray made removal of wax residue (using the silicone spray and toothbrush method) much easier in the event I got some on the rubber trim.

Where do people buy touch up paint? The little bottle with the brush in it. How about for black L700 TS?
