SOLVED - Rattle from Left Side
This a rattle which sounds as if it's coming from the front passenger door or B Pillar. You may spend time like me and others examining the loose seat belt upper mounting or the loose plug on the Airbag mounting.
But it's actually the door moving and solved with Silicone Spray on the rubbers.
It's hard to understand why this leads to a metallic rattle but it does. Earlier in the life of the car I solved a squeak by the same method but didn't think it would be the same cure for this different noise. We have another post going on noises and I was alerted to the door. I knew I was getting somewhere after I wound in the adjustment and the noise moved from the 'B Pillar' to the 'A Pillar'. I'm now afraid to wind the adjustment back out but I will do and report back.
