Hey all

So as I expected, barely put 1400 miles on my car and the interior is starting to rattle. It really annoys the crap out of me. Seems like the rattle sound comes from the passenger's side, and back of the car.

I only have rattles if I turn my music up too loud

I noticed that too. Is this something that can be fixed under warranty?
Most likely not. It's just annoying. I don't notice it any more to care, but some people feel differently than I. If you can find exactly what is causing the rattle then maybe, or if it's causing a problem.

Ill try that. I also noticed those little seatbelt adjusters are loose. And the windows may be rattling too
It happens, most people want to either shoot themselves or wear ear pro when they are in my car. I'm not your average ST though, lol.

Its not just the motor mounts, the balance shaft delete, the strut and traction bars, Koni yellows at max stiffness, all these things added vibes. I get rattles pretty much everywhere.

Which is why I have the "AA" amp upgrade. To drown them all out, rofl.

Did your cargo tray come unhooked? Mine likes to pop off of the little plastic pegs all the time and that could cause some rattling.

My mk6 gti had more rattles (5 different rattles) at 10k miles than the ST which is at 14k now. I think the ST has an occasional rattle coming from somewhere above my head but it is nothing really.

I'm at the same mileage, and also have the rattles. They seem to come from the passenger side somewhere. Sucks, but I'll live with it till' spring. Also my MBRP catback system appears to be covering up the noise a little.

This is so wierd, I have no rattles what so ever...full mounts, B8's and Pro Kit and the front traction bar. I'm visiting my parents right now and driving their spare ZX4 and it amazes me how much it vibrates and rattles, and it's not a beater. It is an '05, but only has 50,000 miles.
