Over this past weekend I have noticed a rattle coming from what I thought was the passenger seat. It was only during hard acceleration or braking...it was a momentum rattle I suppose. Well I've looked under the seat and all around and could not find anything that was loose, even had a friend try to find it as I drove...no such luck. It seemed to get worse as the week wore on...but I think much of this was in my head...still it was driving me :crazy:. Then I sat and tried to analyze the exact noise...it was sort of a muffled clang....a faint clang. Hmmm....as I was thinking I removed my sunglasses and placed them in the case inside the armrest box. As I was about to close the armrest lid...it hit me. To test my theory I started up the car and went for a ride with the lid opened.....sure enough it proved my theory was correct. I pulled back into my carport, removed the dollar in quarters that were standing in the upright positions in the coin slot and solved my rattle.:banana:

During acceleration and braking the coins would hit each other and it was muffled because it was under the lid. I had placed the coins in there last Friday.

I had the same rattle tormenting me, and eventually came up with the same fix! Oddly, it seemed to be more pronounced when someone was in the passenger seat...

:cheers:
