Captain Grumpy

Anyone know of a way to wave a magic wand and get rid of rattles!?
Door trim twitching
Window rattling
Dashboard squeaking
Head lining screaming
Rear- something- groaning
Brake pads chattering

Radio not loud enuff!

AAAAARGH

Just been round to the local builders yard for 6' of their finest alloy drainpipe - will rip off the 'super sport 'xhaust and give it a go .
Yours with a new set of earplugs

I will say one thing David - my Scoob cat get a bit noisey when the sun has been blazing for a while. I generally find the hotter the weather the more squeaks etc i hear I can't help but wonder as to whether its all the plastic etc inside that expands when it gets hot meaning you get loads of rubbing noises etc ?? I mean you did say its hot out there

Just a thought ?

With respect, I beg to differ.

When it gets to -40C, THEN you will hear the plastic protesting!!!!

Why didn't my parents emigrate to a warm country????

Well I can honestly say (like this morning for instance) that when the temp does drop a wee bit that the car is quieter inside However I would imagine most things would squeak and rub etc at -40, bones being one of them :twisted:

Karl - you have really hit the nail on the head. There is no doubt the dash etc squeaks get more noticeable as the sun gets higher here.Roll on some cooler weather - less squeaking ( it's not really that bad) and some cooler air for my poor engine.

it's a Subaru .. they all rattle.. sti... 22B... or base model Impreza

interior rattles can usually be sorted with foam sticky tape once you find the cause

i just ignore them. pretty much used to it now...

squeak....rattle... rumble...

I must admit that mine isn't that bad at all - I usually get one bloody quiet very annoying rattke that appears behind the dash or something or inside a door card, but generally all I hear is the Exhaust !! :twisted:

In Wales you cant hear the rattles (not that i have any...yet), this is due to the sound of the of the rain on the roof and the standing water on the road....it drowns it out (pun totally intended) :roll:

But when the sun does come out (about twice a year), i use an internal windscreen blind, this helps.

I have used a silicon spray in the past, between all the joins in the plastic. If
they do rub they then glide, so no more squeaks and creaks

Here is my suggestion, get a good set of speakers and a decent amp. Fill the doors with dynamat, and you won't ever hear another rattle or squeak again. :wink:

The only downside is dynamat insulation is kinda heavy, so you will be adding weight to your car.
