Odd one for you. Car went in for some warranty work (squeaky/rattling dashboard) and since its come back, we've noticed the some marks on the grill in the center of the dashboard and around the grill. Any ideas on what it is? It won't clean off.

Maybe some plank of a fitter has sprayed it with WD40 to stop the squeek ?
I wouldn't be surprised to be honest! I sent over the images to the dealer and they have no idea what it is. Apparently 'anti-vibration tape was used to stop the squeaking, but today it was clicking/squeaking a good'un.

What is worth noting, whatever it is has gotten gradually worse since, so God knows what it is.

Bit of an update on this - Turns out there is an odd issue. Some grease/lubricant used in the joint in the rear view mirror, is melting when hot, causing it to run out and drip on the dashboard / the speaker trim. Mercedes are now rectifying it under warranty.
