jiraines I finally found the squeak (by accident at that). It was actually coming from the hinge on the center console lid. I lubed it with some silicone grease and my "b pillar squeak" has disappeared.

Relieved I found the source!

jiraines So, the weather warmed up to over 50 degrees a few days ago and the squeak is back. Adjusting the height of the seat belt anchor did not fix it. I will be spending some time Saturday looking for the squeak, again.

mac.mogul My 11 Focus is super quiet compared to my 03 Mustang so I can't complain too much, but it does get annoying since I don't have engine noise to drown everything out in the Focus like I did with the Mustang lol

jiraines I get the rattling in the dash as well. I cannot tell if it is coming from the the engine bay, instrument cluster or center stack. Probably coming from all of them. I really like my car but sometimes I'm very annoyed with the noises and the squeaks. I know its not a luxury car by any means but I feel that whether I paid $50K or $19K, the car should remain solid and noise free throughout its life.

My focus really has more rattles and squeaks than my 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 had when I traded it.

You're always welcome to return to your dealership, Red Jay 918, if the rattling becomes too bothersome. They'll be happy to assist!

jiraines Great idea. That would be really useful - squeaks and rattles ruin the driving experience for me. I cannot ignore a noise that shouldn't be there!

mac.mogul One thing I plan to do this spring is to take off some interior plastics and put silicone on the tabs and snap-on points. I've been looking at some other ways to reduce interior rattling noises as well. Solutions should be simple and I plan to make them as subtle as possible to keep OE appearance. I'll probably have a thread.

jiraines Thanks... I'll give that a try. Each time I have a passenger and it happens I try to point out the noise to get their assistance in tracking it down but they never seem to hear it.

I adjusted the seatbelt holder, now just have to wait for the weather to break.

A7xschecter6661 My dad said he heard something when I drove him somewhere. I think he said it was the seatbelt holder at the top. Try adjusting it to a different position, higher or lower and see if that gets rid of it
