Im sorry for not seeing this thread sooner, vegachicago. If you still have a rattle, I can help by forwarding the info to your regional customer service manager. Please be sure to PM me your VIN, full name, approximate mileage, best daytime phone number, and dealer name/state.

Bogey & Twenty,

Because yall live north of the border, I suggest speaking with one of the wonderful Ford Canada agents at 1-800-565-3673 so they can lend a hand.

Check for loose stuff in the various plastic storage areas for loose stuff, pad it with a soft cloth or remove it to see if that stops your rattles.
Very nice investigating, gzrfun! Thanks for spreading the tip.
