2016 HA Driver's side rattle

hey all,

it's not loud, it's not bad, and it's not constant, but every once in a while - big bump/pothole, loud bass - there is a rattle coming from the driver's side. i have pushed/pulled around on everything i can think of and can't figure out what it is. i have heard some people had speaker connection issues with the 2015, but i don't think it's that. it's a little thing, but it bothers me. it's a new vehicle, it was expensive, and i don't expect a rattle.

thing is, if i bring this up to the dealer, i have two concerns:
1) they could disassemble the door to look for something, not find anything, but the rattle is now worse since factory seals are broken;
2) they would want to charge me hourly for chasing something that would be difficult to replicate.

thoughts?

1) They could or did?

2) They won't charge you anything at all. It's brand new and covered under warranty.

Re: 2016 HA Driver's side rattle

I personally would not bring mine to a dealer for a minor rattle for a few reasons. Like you said they will take apart panels and likely break a tab or not get something back together perfectly again. Like you said it won't be as good as factory. Usually never is when dealing with plastic interior parts. I would be patient and keep working at the rattle. Eventually you should be able to locate it. If you need to remove the door panel yourself. It's not hard and atleast you know it was done right.....or maybe not because I know you had some struggles with the arm rest ;-) jk jk.
I had a weird rattle in the back of my HA and it eventually went away on its own. I think I finally traced it to somewhere in the headliner. I pushed on a few things and it's gone now haven't heard it.

Re: 2016 HA Driver's side rattle

@overlanding - my two points were hypothetical outcomes.

JTS, yeah that's what i'm worried about. it's not a big deal yet. thinking i just deal with it and see if it either works itself out or gets worse enough so i can find it. shrug.
