    Rattles noise 2013 wrx

    its a 2013 wrx sedan base model, lately I notice there is some rattle noise coming from the back of the trunk area, anyone experienced that? Any idea where is came from!?? I was thinking its from the license plate area, but I checked its pretty firm.

    Are you sure it isn't in the interior of the car?

    Remove the piece covering the spare wheel and see if that's it. If not, keep removing.

    It's normal. When she runs out of air, she'll stop.

    More than likely it's the large plastic panel behind the rear seat head rests. Mine rattled like crazy.

    For me, the noise was the most pronounced when I had slowed slightly with out down shifting, then started to accelerate. Throttle application in 4th gear from about 1500 rpm sounded like there was a pack of hummingbirds caged in my trunk.

    I figured so. I mostly followed this guide to get mine fixed. I didn't bother with the foam strip along the back edge between the panel and the window though. And with that rattle fixed, now I can hear all the other ones in my car! That one was by far the worst though.

    Mine was the sunroof bolts. Take it to the dealer and have them figure it out that's what warranties are for

    It is the large plastic panel behind the seats. Mine was rattling right where the middle seat's seatbelt mechanism met that large plastic piece, and was remedied by adding small adhesive felt pads between the white plastic cup the mechanism sits in, and where it meets the plastic. Took me 20 minutes to fix, and I've never heard a rattle since. I also removed the rattles on the a-pillars, and am happy to report I have a 100% rattle free car in all temperatures!

    EDIT: Here is a very thorough walk through on how to fix all the rattles. Linky linky
