    I'd just take it to the dealer and have them sort it out. I'm planning on having them check out the various rattles in my car on my first oil change. The passenger door only seems to rattle when the speaker outputs a certain frequency of bass. I've seen posts about the dealer putting foam in there to stop the rattle.

    I'm going to be taking it to a dealer next week for these issues. If anyone else does the same it would be great to compare notes here.

    Well I couldn't take it anymore so I pulled the top plastic piece off the hatch and put some weatherstrip foam up in that bad boy. I haven't gotten rid of all the rattles so I'm gonna have to go back in there again and put some more foam. It's driving me nuts!

    My security visor thing in the back was squeeking so I put some cloth between each end and the sides of the car. It helped a lot...for like 3 days. Now the squeeking is back on occassion even with the cloth in place.

    I think taking out the visor altogether would get rid of all of the noise but I like having that back there since I don't have my windows tinted yet.

    I've got a few sqeeks and rattles in some of the places already mentioned, but my CBE masks them enough to be tolerable. I will say my last car produced so much noise from the exterior body panels, suspension, and interior parts that my WRX almost seems quiet to me.

    You saw my pics.. man I hate rattles n buzzes.. I went to town with that 3/8" foam from Autozone. Its all over under those pannels.. not a buzz in the rear at all now. Did that some 42K mi ago and still good.

    Yeah, I just finished foaming it up (thanks for the pics btw) and finally it's quiet again back there! I had to remove the privacy panel though, I still need to do the electrical tape fix on it to stop it from squeaking.

    Solved the hatch rattles... I used a piece of Velcro (fuzzy side) and stuck it on the privacy bar underneath the wobbly spring loaded plastic cap. Now no more wobbles or plasticky clicky sounds! Extra thanks to my coworker Jay for thinking of using the fuzzy Velcro when we couldn't find any electrical tape, LOL!

    Yes dear polishing the underside of the rocker panels IS important.

    No, the other side doesn't have the spring loaded plastic, it's solid back there, and yes the outside of both plastic pieces has some "fuzzy tape" on it. I left that intact.
