Rattle when cold

Sounds like it is coming from the rear of the vehicle, possible near the roof. Anyone have this and find the solution? Really don't like bringing my vehicle to the dealer, had a really bad experience on two F150 trucks and the dealership tearing the interior apart.....the guys doing are not experts! Just when hitting bumps.

If it is coming from the rear - could this be a spare tire moving around (obviously not near the roof though and cold should not be relevant)?

Re: Rattle when cold

The plastic cover across the sunroof rattles on mine when it's cold. I need to adjust it.

Re: Rattle when cold

Cold weather is *definitely* relevant with regard to rattles. Cars and plastic in general is much more prone to rattling after sitting out in very cold conditions.

You are right - what I meant is that if the noise source is spare tire moving around then cold probably shouldn't make a difference

Re: Rattle when cold

I have the pano roof. It sounds like the track but I can't pin point it or replicate it without driving over rough road.
