Nope. Apparently you only find that item on the STI. Wish it were that easy.
.........and unfortunately the insane tapping continues

3. passenger Door rattle - this seems to be wiring rattleing against the inner door panel or the cover. Use some sticky foam and wrap wires..
Can someone answer...where does this rattle sound like it is coming from? I have a rattle in the front passenger door that sounds like it is coming under the controls of the door but possibly above and to the right of the speaker...it could be loose speaker equipment from the install of my MB quarts, but I was wondering if it could be this as well.

Has anyone had this and notice a larger volume of rattle when the bass is up? I don't notice anything with music turned off.

doubt it.. you decided to install a 12" aftermarket sub which causes the rattle that you're experiencing..

If you haven't performed any sound deadening, that's the first place to start. if you have performed sound deadening, you might need a little more. Or at least firm up the speaker baffle, door card and interior door panel. Also locate any resonant or rattling pieces and quiet them down.

For a speaker rattle, its a good idea to take care of the entire door, and not focus on a single rattle. This will help improve the speaker's performance, block out noise, and address the other rattles that will occur with higher levels of vibration (larger bumps in the road, bigger amp).

Check out what these guys have done. That should give you a good starting point. If you still prefer to do it piece meal, take off the door card and start tapping with your fingers in the area you heard the rattle. On any spot that rattles add some silcone caulk, sticky back felt, or sticky back foam. Use zip ties to tie up any loose wires. Look for any areas where there will be plastic to plastic contact and use one of items mentioned to add a cushioning layer.

thanks for the advice. I seemed to have fixed the problematic rattle. I used felt pads all around my crossover for my tweeter and zip tied wires.

now I just need to take care of the roof rattle caused by too much bass. maybe I'll drop my headliner and put deadening up there. not sure if that will help or not.

I have two noises I would really appreciate some help with.

The first is my tach/speedo seems to buzz during decel if I go above 4k rpm's. It is so bloody annoying. Sometimes I can hold the buzz if I hit the magic rpm, usually about 4200.

The second is my passenger door seems to vibrate to certain tones on the stereo, only certain tones though!

Both seem like harmonic vibrations but the first one is REALLY making me nuts. If a dealer replaces the speedo does it go on my title as unverified mileage? I have had them pull out and reinstall the darn thing, they couldn't find anyting wrong.

Thanks!

If the dealer replaces your speedo, they have to , by law, have the new speedo set to your exact current mileage. We have done it numerous times under warranty at my dealership...it happens more often that you think.

Thats why when you push down on the VIN you are actually placing pressure indirectly onto the dash piece that holds the defogger vent and the rattle goes away



The Solution: Remove the defogger vent. Then wrap it with Adhesive-backed felt on the outer tube area. The felt was purchased at Wal-Mart for $.79 its in the crafts area. Re-install tube and presto!

Results: No rattle, well at least not that one anymore
Bump on how to get this piece out

Need help, massive rear deck rattle.

It sounds like the ENTIRE rear deck is slapping something when the bass hits. Not just some small plastic cover, but as if the whole rear fibreboard (or whatever it is) deck is hitting metal. I tried to alleviate this before, but it didn't help at all.

I have this same rattle, I slap the lower left corner of the airbag and it gets worse (is induced). I have taken out the glove box, upper vents and clock pod and cup holder to try and isolate it, no luck. It sometimes goes away if I run the heat through the vents for several minutes, perhaps this expanded some plastic and temporarily stops the rattle.

ANY OTHER SUGESTIONS??

I just noticed this too esp with the colder weather. It does go away after the car heats ups. If I open the glove box still rattles. Could it be the passenger side defroster?

I get a sound like the windshield creaking/cracking as I go over bumps coming from my passenger side dash area too. Only hear it when its minus whatever outside. I'm ready to go Columbo and pull the whole dash out on my day off-Friday..
I'll post results or lack thereof..

Only glue it if you don't need a Reverse gear.

Coming home today I pressed on that thin strip of plastic along the innermost edge of the wind shield and it went away temporarily. I think it might be that piece others have had trouble with. Is it put in with those rattly white plastic clips?
