    Hey,

    I thought with all the individual thread relating to rattles it would be good to have a singular thread for reference.

    just post your rattle and how it was resolved.

    lets try not post questions but stick to answers.

    One from me.

    LOCATION: front right wheel
    WHEN: on bumpy roads
    REASON: stone stuck against brake heat shield.
    IS THIS YOUS? tap the shield with your hand if it starts vibrating and rattling your on the money.

    LOCATION: Everywhere - but particularly right next to my head somewhere in the B Pillar (well that's what's annoying me at the moment) - and the dash. All of it.
    WHEN: Constantly
    REASON: Just another fine example of holden's billion dollars of development being let down by cost cutting in production
    EASIEST WAY TO FIX: Agree with selling it.

    Just look at that supercheap ad, where the guy finds a couple of spare screws in the ash tray. That'll solve everything!

    Not a VE, but still...

    LOCATION: Where the dash fascia meets the A pillar
    WHEN: Most of the time, bumpy roads more so
    REASON: NFI, sounds like there is a bird stuck it my dash (squeaking noise)
    EASIEST WAY TO FIX IT: Plant foot for exhaust noise, turn up stereo, hitting the dash fixed it for a couple of days once...then it came back, drive the Beamer when I can be bothered...

    Never encountered another commodore with this problem, even a VE, I guess its not really a rattle, possibly more annoying though

    EASIEST WAY TO FIX IT: Complain to dealer, when they say they can't replicate it or find a cause just put something heavy in the door pocket until next service.
