Re: What do u guys do for all these damn rattles!!!??

Mine also has numerous rattles; behind the dash on the passenger side, the passenger door, and several other places. THe WK frankly has very shoddy build quality overall, and among the worst depreciation of any vehicle. I have owned several (mostly Japanese) vehicles with much higher mileage, that never had any rattles, and never revisited the dealer for warrantee repairs. My WK has been in at least 10 times for repairs, now with about 65k on the OD. Thankfully got the extended warrantee, as the factory one (3/36k) is also one of the worst in the industry.

Re: What do u guys do for all these damn rattles!!!??

i was thinking it was where the plastic lining on the interior met with the exterior plastic... OR maybe it was the metal on the hinges squeaking... so many options, hard to pin point!

Or put Velcro on the 2 guide (left and right of the middle one) tabs on the center console lid that help lock it in place to the bottom part. Killed the sound for me

The rattling above the headliner, right-hand side of the cargo area in my WK was the gas tube that inflates the airbags. Pulled off that panel the rear passenger side shoulder belt feeds out of, which gave me enough access to snake a wire camera and an allen wrench to probe with over the headliner. After determining the rattling was coming from the loosened gas tube, I sprayed insulation foam around it and problem solved...you know the lazy solution due to that I do not want to remove the headliner unless it is absolutely necessary.

I also have the rattle behind the passenger side dash, did you ever firgure out what it is?
it drives me nuts, sounds like a metal piece is loose or something almost like when you shake a thin sheet of metal and it makes that echoing type sound haha i guess its hard to describe

I have this same rattle I think...above the rear passenger window. It happens even when I'm not going over bumps. Although I don't think I have side airbags. How do you know if yoiffy? If I don't have side airbags, I don't think it'd be a gas tube.
