Not your usual 1997
Legacy GT

Legacy Third Brake light wires rattle.

I've got a '97 Legacy GT. Also got a sub in the back. Whenever the sub hits, my spoiler rattles. I've put insulation around the third brake light, that helped some, but the wires that feed juice to the light rattle now. It might even been wire loom around the wires that's rattling. Any good ideas besides putting expanding foam in there?

Thanks
Aaron

I have used actual house insulation for my rear deck, pack it in there as best you can, it worked great for me!

I believe he is talking about regular house fiberglass insulation. Look for the hole that the wires go into under the rear deck inside the trunk. Stuff the insulation up in there to silence the wires.
