I had the loose roof liner wobbling/rattling bug since day one back in nov 2011. None of the 3 dealers I went to were able or interested to fix the issue. One of them even told me that since Ford did not issued any kind of TSB regarding this, that it would not touch it, another one told me it was ''normal''...

Fast forward in june 1st 2013, 21h30. During a big storm, part of a tree fell unto my roof and my hood, ripping appart the driver side mirror and pushing the glass sunroof inward. The glass plate did not break, it was only 1/2 an inch inside the car and water was pourring in, big time. Some of the metal rails that allows the plate glass to slide were warped in the process, but the glass plate stayed in one piece. I was VERY surprised that it did not broke.

3559$ worth of repair laters, the body shop I went to have my car repaired and repainted (partially) was able to fix the roof liner in a snap. They had to ''pry'' the roof liner opening a bit to change some broken parts in the rails but never removed the roof lineri tself. All they did was applying some (real) glue and Voilą!!

It's been more than a month now and I am finally rattle free.

Gotta love those dealers sometimes...

Hi Shorty Long.

I'd like to take see how I can assist with this. Can you PM me your name, phone number, VIN, mileage, and dealer info? I'll get the ball rolling.

I had a noise that sounded like it was coming from the headliner. It turns out that it was coming from the left bolster of the passenger seat. With the seat too far forward, the bolster makes contact with the plastic on the center console. Even on really smooth roads it will make an extremely annoying sound.

Well I found the rattle I thought was coming from the headliner! The annoying noise was coming from the piece of plastic that hides the rain sensor on the windshield. I just have to give it a kick once in a while and it goes away.

Hahahah this is so trashy... But one yeah ago I had this problem... I was driving and reached into my gym bag and pulled out a sock, shoved it in there and 1 year later never a rattle again.

I call it the Hanes mod

A little over 32k. NO RATTLES AT ALL. None. Nada. Zip.

Im at about 16K and have a couple rattles. The one above my head in the headliner is the absolute most annoying ! I've actually used a napkin to fix it during a couple road trips.

If anyone could figure out how to permanently fix this, I'd be most grateful
