very annoying rattles

well figured its about time i try to sort out the minor faults on my car as everything else seems to be ok ( now thats a kiss of death if ever i saw one) anyways:D

i have this rattle which comes from directly in front of me its inside the dash some were. when you go over un even roads its sounds like there a peice of metal rattling around inside. and some times its really annoying i normally just turn my stereo up ;). the noise has been there since i got my car last year. about august time i had to have the steering shaft assembly replaced (thankgod i had a warranty) when it came back wooohoo the rattle had gone also/ but over the next few months it gradually started to coem back liek i did before . it was like something was working lose has anyone had this and any ideas as waht it could be ????


ok rattle number 2 this is comming from directly above my left ear in the roof [V] how annoying is that. only way to stop s to push up on roof lining or retract teh sun roof any ideas?

Hi, I dont know what the dash noise could be but it sounds like the sunroof is the seal, the seal is probaby sticking to the glass so when the body of the car moves the glass is making a tacking noise moving and sticking to the seal etc. I have this problem with the drivers window if i open it abit away from the seal its fine. You need to grease the seal a tiny bit not much just a bit.

Sensible mods go far

There isn't a single part of my car that doesn't rattle. When everything rattles you kind-of block it all out :)
