That long one was terrible - we had to carpool to work for a week, I had to shuffle appointments around, etc.

My new dealer (the second one) is great. Can't fault them. I intend on bringing up the new possibility of the heat shield being the culprit the next time the car's in. I'm just sick and tired of spending my time and money (it's 50 miles r/t) hauling this car to the dealer every couple weeks!
Dealer visits to date:
1/26 - car kept overnight (no loaner)
1/30 - car kept overnight (no loaner)
3/26 - car kept 10 days (only provided loaner for one day)
6/21 - car kept 2 days (no loaner)
7/?? - service completed while waiting
8/2 - service completed while waiting
8/17 - service completed while waiting
8/30 - car kept overnight (loaner provided)
So that's 8 trips in 8 months of owning the car, and I think I'm forgetting at least one trip. Not to mention 14 days the car was out of my possession - with a loaner provided for only two of them.

Well, I couldn't get to hear the sound when I came back from work yesterday; nor did it happen this morning nearly as bad as yesterday morning. I'm beginning to think it might have something to do with the temperature. It was pretty warm this morning and cold yesterday morning. Anyway, I'm ready to record anytime in case it happens again.
Also, I'll have a look at the plastic piece of the headrest.

|wgilles||Interesting Constantine. I will give it a try and see if it helps. I had my suspicions about that piece actually. One time I thought I heard it coming from behind me, which could have been the headrest piece. Thanks!|

I had the same rattle coming from the passenger seat, dealer told me it was a "characteristic of the car" so I was forced to investigate it myself. I ended up finding the problem. See my picture, believe it or not it was the plastic piece the head rest connects to. I wedged a piece of paper in between and no more rattle. Hope this helps. let us know!

|wgilles||What I want to know is what is up with the right side of the car? It seems all of our rattles come from the right.|

I think mine is the passenger seat AND the door panel.
As for the seat, I haven't determined if it's where the leather connects or on the track, but if I pull up and down quickly on the front left-most corner of the chair, it clicks. If I pull up slowly, it does not. If I adjust the seat position, sometimes it stops. I think it's something in the track, though.
