Did anyone ever find out exactly what is causing it or how to fix it? This is really starting to get on my nerves.
Hey JasonM,

You can always mention this to your Service Tech the next time you have an oil change or other scheduled maintenance appointment. They'll be happy to get to the bottom of that rattle for you. Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions or concerns

BAM, my right fist, which I have given the moniker "the Hammer", impacts it's plasticy face and it ceases to make any further statements. It would occasionally make a quip every once in a while, but to remind it of our previous scuffle, I would tap it and it would enter what I like to call "The Silence Zone".
This, symbology, made my day. Hopefully you don't have to bust out "The Hammer" for any other vehicle maintenance.

It was such a relief to get that sound fixed.
Glad to hear that your Focus is rattle-free, Shorty Long!

Have a great day, everyone.
