I have a rattle also coming from the middle front. I haven't had a chance to track it down, but from the driver's seat it sounds like it is coming from directly behind the radio. I'll let you know what I find out.stillalivenwell said:Seems to be coming from rearview mirror fixture. thought it was middle speaker first, but wife says its the mirror (she was my roadtest assistant).
Anybody else with this problem? Fix?
Mine only has the one, luckily not steady... in fact I haven't heard it since our road trip in October when it was raining, wonder if that means anything. I do think that I noticed it much more however, because this car is sooooo quiet inside.rogue said:This car is the worst rattletrap i've owned. Worse than my 1961 Lincoln.
I wish. My subwoofer, even at low volumes, rattles the rear deck panel (not the metal) I have padded it underneath and it has reduced it a bit, but I need to spend a few more hours in the back seat isolating the rattles. The rear center seatbelt tensioner rattles excessively even wrapped and surrounded with deadener, the trunk panels are hollow and need to be filled with carpet padding or weather stripping of some sort, the overhead console lamps are designed in such a way that they "hang" and when bass hits them, they rattle up and down. The sunglass holder also rattles.II kings 9:20 said:Rogue, did any of your Fatmat help any of your rattles.
Hope you folks have solved your dashboard rattle by now. If not I had one that sounded like it was coming from the dash center but was at the right sunvisor attach point. The sound was traveling down the windshield into the dash. Tightened screws and problem solved.stillalivenwell said:Seems to be coming from rearview mirror fixture. thought it was middle speaker first, but wife says its the mirror (she was my roadtest assistant).

it, and it rattled the whole way to work this morning.
It sounds like its coming from the passenger side of the dash, but as everyone has
said, it could be traveling from somewhere else.
I can't hear it when I have music playing in the car, which is good. But as soon
as you turn the volume down, you can hear the rattle.
And its not like it only happens on rough or bumpy roads either. Any slight body flex, and
I hear it.
I will have to have someone sit in the car with me, drive it, and have the person
press on things that the rattle might be coming from, and see if that will stop it. At
least that way, I can pin-point the problem.
I have to agree that for the money, this is the most cheaply put together car I have
ever had, with more rattles, buzzes, and pops, of any car that I have owned.
But, when you add in the fact that when I come to a stop, and tromp the pedal
down, and get sideways in the street from smoking the tires without having to power
brake the car, all of those rattles, buzzes and pops just kind of fade away, and they
are replaced by a smile on my face!!
Mine's less than a rattle and more of a very fast ticking sound, something like five ticks per second. That rate never varies, it just goes off and on, depending on the movement of the car. When I got home last night, I turned off the fan and the radio/CD/sat and it still continued, but only when the body flexed a little.jaydee said:My dealer doesnt think its there- but then I never get to demo it..... Mine's a mixture between a click and a clack rather than a persistent rattle- Seems to be coming from the right front- couldn't say whether its the right door mirror or the window or perhaps its one of the connectors for the right speaker that I replaced a while ago- its maddening!!! I'll check the right visor...
