Doing this got rid of a weird buzzing giant fly like sound I had when accelerating with the car. And no, it wasnt the actual car engine noise :)
Thank you for this. I couldn't figure out why my engine seemed buzzier all of the sudden. I must not have completely secured the battery box and/or fuse box when I installed my LED DRLs. I reclosed them both. This did it.

Mine's started doing this since it got cooler out, too. Definitely sounds like something on the outside rattling against it - even though I'm not sure that's what it actually is.

Good suggestions on the trim/molding - I'll check mine later.

Same here. Appears to be affected by the colder temps.

Any update on yours? Mine is still doing it and I can longer stand it... I took the two covers off by the wiper motors and still no go.
