My rattle ended up being a heat shield. But before they came to that conclusion the also thought it was the seat. They replaced the seat rails as they thought that was the issue, and when it wasnt they continued to hunt down the rattle and got it fixed.
My point here is these kind of things is what your warranty is for. Im all for tinkering around on my cars, and ive done A LOT to both my focii, but when you have a warranty to fix it, and your not responsible for breaking anything, you pay nothing out of pocket then why not take it in. I know its a pita sometimes, but screwing something up when you dont have to could cost more and create more problems that your then responsible for.
