Rattling from door area stereo when playing music?
 
Hello guys,

As of late my Focus is having an annoying rattle coming from the passenger side lower door stereo. It almost sounds as if something has come loose. It comes and goes depending on the bass. I have the base SEL 6-speaker system in my Focus. Anyone else experiencing this problem? The driver side rear door has the same problem. Very annoying.

Thanks

GoGators, I had the same problem, but on the rear driver-side passenger door panel. It's definitely annoying and I had the folks at the dealer where I bought it check it out. They definitely caught the rattling, and said they were going to change out the speaker (although I think the culprit is simply a loose speaker, I guess it doesn't hurt to change it).

Getting a rattle from the front passenger door here. Also getting a small rattle some where in the dash when driving on a rough/bumpy road.

Rattle free.

I have the same rattle in the driver-side rear door whenever there's a little bit of bass. Glad to know your dealer checked it out, I'll have to mention it when I go in. Although it could be the speaker, I thought it was coming from the cupholder/storage area that is in the door for the rear passengers?

I did try out holding the trim piece when the strong bass did come on, it helped a little but not completely. Also made sure there was nothing left in the storage compartment that was rattling too. Definitely mention it to them. Only issue is that they're estimating a week for the part to come in, so I'll have to come back to the dealer again.

I'm getting the radio buzz in the right rear door. Figured I'd mention it when I take it in for a couple of other issues...
