The SVT rattle thread.

This thread is for the most annoying aspect of the SVT IMO, rattles. They happen everywhere so post up yours and if you ever got it fixed.

Mine:

High pitched rattle while coming to stop or starting out: broken cat bracket

High pitched squeak from passenger side: Loose front bumper screws

Big thunks from under car: front endlinks

Plastic on plastic sound: from sunroof button but can't seem to fix it

Squeak from seatbelt fixed with WD40

Other squeak from rear undetermined

Moan from inside dash somewhere: goes away then comes back.

Clutch pedal squeak, fixed with WD40

Many other phantom squeaks from teh rear somewhere, probably from rear seat hinges to fold them forward, not sure yet.

Post up yours
