Re: Annoying Rattle

I also have this rattle. I think its coming from the engine bay near the firewall LHS, could be one of the air con or heater pipes. I will point this out to the service guys at the 1K check.

Thanks for all the feed back, I will certainly try this to see if it is the same rattle. I hope it is, at least once I locate where it is coming from then I stand a chance of correcting it or getting it corrected.

Re: Annoying Rattle

Well the rattle is gone. Took the car back to the dealer and they traced the rattle to a fuel line vibrating on the sub frame on the passenger side low down on the fire wall. They have re-routed the line and wrapped it in foam. Rattle was only there at a particular harmonic in the vehicle not all the time, but it is good to have it gone. Chalk one up to the dealer.

Exactly the same in ours....only there on certain road surfaces. Its on the end of the top vent on the passenger side.
think it might be fixed with blu tack if I get enthusiastic.
