    Interior Plastic rattling due to exhuast sytem.

    So I did the listed mods in my signature. Now the plastic in the rear passenger compartment rattles and is starting to get annoying. Anybody have any tips or tricks to fixing that?

    1. get someone else to drive so you can pinpoint the location
    2. roll up small piece of paper or card-stock

    it works though, i have zero squeak.

    Pinpoint that rattle then place something like athletic tape or velcro between the pieces that are rattling. I've even placed athletic tape over the male part on some of the pop tabs and then installed back in the female. Specifically this is what I did on the hatch trim. The space taken up by the tape on the male made the rattle go away and actually made the connection between pieces stronger by eliminating slack spaces in the interface. I've done quite a few de-rattle mods on my hatchback. The a-pillar/dash creak was the worst, and the rear hatch trim was pretty bad too. It's much quieter and less stressful in my cabin now since I did all that.


    Rattles blow big C and I simply won't accept a rattling car. Get a buddy and some patience, you can get'em solved I'm sure.
