So I am here at north county ford in vista ca, getting my first oil change, and to have them fix the rattle.

Sure enough the guy says that he can't reproduce the sound.

I explained that of you raise the car and hit he wheel with a rubber mallet, the sound comes from about 8 inched back and 8 inches inboard from the left front wheel.

I show him that if you kick the wheel, it makes he noise. He is bringing back to the lift to try it again. I will post back in a couple minutes. I guess I will go to every dealer in town this week, since I'm on a one week break.

I was at least a bit surprised that they tried that routine given how easy it is to make the noise.

Uuuhhhggg I hate this. It seems that the dealer should be motivated to fix stuff like this
