RE: Have you got a rattle or two?

Update..
so, its been 2 and half years and they still couldn't figure out where the rattle is coming from.. after more than 15 visits to the repair shop, and perhaps more than 20 days, where the car has been there, still the rattle is there with a vengeance. the service centre in my town has been awesome, nothing much they can do i think.. we have gone through the whole process..
1, checked roof line and fixed screws
2. changed the console
3. used the special rattle kit.
4. and in last visit, took the front windshield off and checked there( in the process, broke the windscreen which they had to replace)
It was all fine and it came back in a month... now just eating my head all the time when i drive it.. my kids rattle toy wouldn't make this noise..
They suspect it could be from A BONUS PART, which some times happen, apparently..
JLR, i dont want that bonus part.. plz take it away and keep for yourself..
Meanwhile, i found a fix.... garage my evoque and drive my wife's cheap VW polo, which is smooth and nice..
I wouldn't recommend this car to anyone..
ps: phew, my torque converter had a problem, so they had to replace it as well.. I had a second hand mazda before.. which never caused me any trouble... only had to visit dealership at time of service..

I fixed the rattle in my sun glass holder / trim panel around sunglass holder myself. I took it out of the headliner and removed the unneccesary heavy plastic covering the board. tightened the screws. Now no more noise.

RE: Have you got a rattle or two?

I've had a rattle in what I thought was the rear door card, it was intermittent and usually started after using the rear door.

I was clipping the rear seats back when I noticed some very flexible bits of plastic trim, so I've wedged some folded post-it notes around the trim and absolute silence!

now... best way to sort it properly...?

I must have bought one that was made on Tuesday when the Workers were Sober. Had mine 5 years now, 32k miles and still on my first set of tyres with 2.2mm of tread left. No complaints from me.

I thought it may be my seat belt, but I'll have to try that !
Also, passenger door speaker, all windows intermittently, and yesterday the missus complained that the seat belt anchor started rattling.
Had my previous Ford 9 years and not a squeak - grrrr!

RE: Have you got a rattle or two?

My post-it notes are still in and the "Door Card" Rattle has never returned, forgotten they are there, even been for MOT with them fitted Laughing

I've had the passenger seat belt anchor rattle and that currently has Cardboard folded in the trim!

Latest "complaint" has been the passenger A Pillar window clearing vent is blowing a bit too much cold and causing SWMBO to complain the side of her head is always in a cold draught! Think it's only when outside temps are low.
