Re: Removing panels/central vent?
undo the allen bolts and use a long allen key slid down inside the vent, turn 90 degrees to hook it, and yank up.
The unit itself is held togteher by lots of little screws, and these are loose, the unit flex's and creaks (you were on about a creak, not a rattle - that was the back doors right?). SO
Either undo them and glue the unit (a soft glue, not a hard one like superglue) and rescrew or just tighten the screws, being VERY careful not to over tighten and strip the threads. Worked on mine. Silicon wont help. If you take it apart, some grease on the joins might be better than glueing
the rear door, take off the handles, speaker (first lever/clip on speaker grill to do is one behind small pip on the grill) then starting at the bottom carefully prise the door trim away, looking/feeling behind to level next to the clips. You will brake a few, so get some spares from dealer first.
The water seal does come off and restick, but is VERY delicate so go carefull - or buy a spare.
Hold the rear end slide....don't run wide!
