    Default Cured resonance rattle...

    I thought I'd post this up to further reiterate the wealth of info this site has

    I had a annoying resonance rattle appear recently that only happened at fast idle, or when driving on pitted roads, it sounded like it was coming from under the dash near the window - it was very annoying to say the least. So I did a quick search to see if this had cropped up before, and there were a few threads pointing me to a few things, but one item kept cropping up, a loose A/C pipe under the bonnet (near the slam panel) but I dismissed it because I was sure the noise was coming from under the dash somewhere, tried a few things - still there.

    So last night when I was bringing the car in, I thought I'd have a look at this A/C pipe and sure enough the mount had come loose and it was rattling about, so I tightened this up (two 10mm nuts on the rear of the slam panel just right of centre) and low and behold, no more rattle, it has also stopped a small vibration I was having when starting and stopping the car too

    So, if anyone has a rattle like that, check the mounts of the A/C pipe - first

    Here's a pic, just so you know which bolts I'm on about...

    Nice one, got a little vibration rattle through the dash - off out to check...

    I also cured my arm rest rattle today, stripped it then realised the tiny rubber stopper from the smaller lid opening was missing. easy to miss but this ment it was bouncing at one side when not under pressure from the old elbow
