Don’t get mad...I thought I had a rattle in that area too.. it turned out to be the seat belt adjuster on the B pillar.. try adjusting it up or down and see if it goes away for a bit. I have to punch mine once a month or so to shut it up.
That’s really good to hear. The overall quality of these cars is vastly superior to other brands.Wow. I don't have any interior rattles after 55k+ miles.
That was the bigger of the two rattles when I got mine too. Bothered me to no end, and fixed it with the short shifter.That’s really good to hear. The overall quality of these cars is vastly superior to other brands.
I don’t want to seem as tho my interior sounds like a maraca from hell as it certainly isn‘t. The only thing that bugs me is the shifter rattle. That will be solved once I can order my short shifter.
If you keep it in sport mode the buzzing on the dashboard might be the stupid little speaker they put in for fake engine noise. When you hear the noise turn sport mode off and on and see if it comes and goes with the button presses. It's pointless, I hated it and disconnected mine.If we’re listing rattles around the cabin, I’ve got three:
1. Reverse lockout lever on my shift knob. Annoying as hell.
2. Height adjust for driver side seatbelt
3. There’s a slight buzzing right around the front left part of the dashboard. Not terrible but it’s noticeable when the radio goes quiet for a second.
So if anyone is interested, I’m sure I know the cause of this and I have a low tech solution, albeit temporary (unless you don’t mind the fix).1. Reverse lockout lever on my shift knob. Annoying as hell.
The base bushings likely accentuate it. Mine did it with everything stock. Seems like the factory lockout isn't designed well enough to keep vibrations from vibrating it aroundSo if anyone is interested, I’m sure I know the cause of this and I have a low tech solution, albeit temporary (unless you don’t mind the fix).
The cause is the shifter base bushings, I’m pretty sure. I never had this rattle before I installed them. No biggie. The benefits far outweigh the annoyance.
The solution, other than a new shifter with a different lockout design, is cheap and easy. If anyone in your house has long hair, you‘ve already got the fix. I used an elastic hair tie. It’s black, I wrapped it around twice. View attachment 91575
You barely even notice it. Rode into work with the radio a bit lower than normal and didn’t hear the shifter at all. I drove home with everything “normal” and once again, no vibration noise. The hair tie stays until I can get the short shifter.
