Rattle against firewall

Hi all , I have a July built MY14 limited diesel and have a rattle that seems to be coming from the firewall either centre or passenger side ( export model .. Aust delivered )
Any ideas before I take to the dealer .
Cheers
Beggsy

Re: Rattle against firewall

The rattles I have personally diagnosed and fixed, where from the driver's side and one from the center. The one from the center, was metallic and was loud at say, 3 MPH. Turned out to be a loose skid plate bolt.

Search around here for other threads. One talks about heater core hoses buzzing against the firewall.

Just thought that I would let you know the outcome, heater hoses now have foam spacer close to the firewall and further down the line. Also found a heat shield that would flap against the drivers side cross member. All good and thanks again for your help !
