Annoying rattle!
« on: September 23, 2013, 03:11:20 pm »
Anyone had a very annoying rattle coming from under the passenger seat?

Have wobbled the door and nothing seems to be rattling around inside, and the seatbelts don't seem to make the noise either.

The only thing I can see that might cause it are the three airbag plugs in close proximity, that are fairly loose. I'm assuming it's the middle one vibrating into the other two, so I've stuck some highly technical Blu Tac in the gaps to stop that happening. I've also done the two under the drivers seat too, just to be sure, but the noise is emanating from the passenger side.

Hopefully that's the cure, but if anyone else has had this and knows what it is I'm all ears - it's driving me mental!!

    Yes, my 595 has a couple of rattles from roughly the same area. The Sabelt seat rattle stopped and I found a bolt on the carpet under the drivers seat. No obvious place where it dropped out of. The door has a similar light metal object rattle, stereo turned up to drowned the sound.

    I noticed a rattle on my test drive, we put it down to the exhaust, but who knows with these cars, the slightly offbeat build quality is part of the charm I think! I know the passenger seat rails can rattle apparently.

    I have no doubt I will be hunting high and low for noises when I get mine, ha ha...

    I checked the rails, they don't seem to move and the rattle sounds more plasticy than metallic.

    We'll see next time I drive it haha :)

    Hurrah!

    I've found the source of the rattle :)

    It was a rogue pound coin deep on the bowels of the passenger seat rails. Much jiggling with a coat hanger and I've managed to free it and will spend it on coffee as a reward!

    So glad I've found it, it was driving me mad!!!!

    Check those rattly seats for coinage people!!
