159 Front door rattle.

After months of tolerating a rattle that seemed to originate from left side of dashboard. I eventually I have traced it to a loose piece of plastic (horse shoe in shape) , dangling totally unsecured on cone of speaker inside the front interior door panel.

I removed it with no visible or audible effect on speaker , and rattle seems to have totally vanished.

For those have rattles eminating from doors , my first recommendation is check your speakers , they could be a probable source.

I have a rattle from around that region, already taken the panel off, found the odd possible thing (one might of been that thing you mentioned :think: ), didn't cure it for me , but only hear it on cold days, might have to get the dealer to look at it (depending on cost).

The only other rattle is from my rear view mirror, not heard in awhile though, might of fixed itself .

Glad you sorted yours

So obviously not a lucky horse shoe? I have rattles in both doors and tailgate since my respray but they only sound when closing the door just like a Punto!
