Good video, but impossible to tell where it's coming from. Lucky for you, it's pretty regular. Try holding the A-Pillar trim and gauge cluster trim one at a time to see if that stops the sound.

Tried both, didn't help. The passenger side does it too. Seems to be worse with higher temperatures outside.

Well... I'm out of ideas. Try pressing on everything lol
My trim around the radio made ticking noises as well when it was hot out, so make sure to try pressing on that too.

Hmmm, still makes me think of the speaker grill. Iím at a loss otherwise, but you could check any wires inside the grill that are loose, or something else loose in there.

This reminds me that I have a rattle coming from a place different from where the cause is, because of the sound reflections in the car off the hard surfaces.

When I would turn up the bass on my 2x 10Ē subs, Iíd hear a rattle coming from the right side of my car, making me think it was the right front or rear passenger door. But after applying dynamat to the inside panel and inside of the outer metal door on all 4 doors it continued.

Then I thought, maybe itís a switch in the right door, but pressing and holding down the switches had no effect. And my son thought it was coming from the left side when I asked him to help me.

So my son and I started to press and hold on different things and it turns out to be the roof liner panel just rear-ward of the star link. Now I have to decide how I want to approach the issue.

Finally fixed my passenger door rattles. I was getting some from near the switches and also from the bottom by the speaker. When there were certain low frequencies coming from the speaker it would rattle the door car. It's been about a week and a half and everything is still silent.

2017 STI door card rattle, rear seat rattle - in case someone is searching

Here's what I did:

Lots of this tape - it's like a fabric tape that can be used in place of electrical tape

https://www.amazon.com/Tesa-Wire-Loo.../dp/B00EH6IZ6Y



I placed some on the back of every door car clip and folded it over the edges so that every part of the clip that rubs against the card or the door was covered





Then I covered the edge of the speaker outline with the tape, too





And finally I taped the **** out of the switches so they couldn't wiggle around anymore. There was a lot of play in them before






So far so good on this fix.

I also had a squeak/rub noise coming from the back seat. The driver's side rear seat back was rubbing in the top corner - so I dropped the seat back and then took a microfiber towel and shoved it in the top corner near the door and then closed it. That seems to have resolved that noise, too.

Hello everyone, this is my first time posting on here and I apologize if this is the incorrect forum or place to be putting this. I just recently got a 2018 sti and every time Iím in 1st or second gear and start accelerating WOT after about 3k RPMs I hear this really loud rattle sound. It sounds like itís somewhere under the car towards the back or center. Very hard to pinpoint it. I canít replicate the rattle in any other gear besides 1 and 2. Please help 😭 Its freaking me out

Toss your phone back there and get a video/audio of it. Might help find it. Put your rear seats down, too - see if they are involved in the noise making

I get heat shield and/or drivetrain rattle like this anytime i'm over 3500 rpm. Especially noticeable if I'm slowly rising into that range rather then WOT.
