What's your worst rattle?

Post by goron59 » Sat Mar 19, 2016 11:17 am

I think the problem with a car with just about every option checked is that there's so much more to rattle!

I think the biggest culprit in mine is the cargo net under the parcel shelf. The metal rod along the back is fairly loose and rattles against the mounting. Eliminated by putting the net under stress.

Second worse is anything in the front passenger-side door pockets. Not just rattles, but vibration in sympathy with loud noises from the speakers.

The cargo net under the parcel shelf only comes with the storage package - I was quite disappointed not to have it as standard, but perhaps this is a blessing in disguise!
I think I get the door rattles, but they have never been consistent enough to investigate more fully!

Does the missus count as she moans about the price?

Rattle from lower dash area on drivers side? Check lower dash tray. At point where plastic arm meets metal flange on bulkhead(where clutch pedal would be) was my rattle source. Double-sided tape sorted! B737NGWS2016-04-04 13:32:38
