Make: 2003 WRX
Problem And Likely Cause: Shift knob rattle due to STi Short shift kit
Submitted For Warranty Work (Yes/No): Yes
Reason Given For Denial: Says its normal due to harder bushings in the STi short shifter causing excess vibration
Your Story: Dealership was very nice, took knob off the shifter shaft, inspected the knob, says the knob is not broken and that the rattle (which only rattles when the knob is on -- when I drive with the knob off there is no rattle) is normal sue to STi ssk assembly. But, nobody else I knows has this rattle with the factory knob and the STi ssk. Suggested to try an aftermarket knob, or bring it back if noise got worse. All I was expecting was a new knob...but couldnt convince them to give me one...
