My dilemma is whether to take it to the dealership and risk misalignment and/or more squeaks and rattles, or attempt some type of "quick fix"
Try wedging in a tinnie tiny little strip of that that rubberized non slip matting,Its tacky enough to stay put.Poke around with a thin piece of plastic sheet to estimate how big of piece you'll need.I have a vibration I have to track down now thats its warming up.The cars stayed quieter then the 2010 focus though so I'm happy with that.

PS. (make it fairly long even if its only .010 thick)
