So this rattle I am hearing from the rear of my ’10 WRX is driving me mad!!
My fiancée and I searched and searched. Drove around the block a number of times with her straddling the spar tire looking for the rattle (one reason why she is my fiancée). Finally we found the culprit.
Now how do I address it is the question? The flashing (I guess that what you would call it) from the cover of the rear of the back seats is the issue. This continuation of the rear upholstery runs down the back of the seat then kicks out and provides a…uhh…flashing to cover the spare tire holding compartment. It is held in place with 2 clips on either side. The seats and this “flashing” are split and both sides rattle. They are secured but the lip of the flashing vibrates against the metal compartment for the spare.
Help please! Any and all suggestions are welcomed.
