    Is it when you're letting the motor rev out of gear or shifting at higher rpm? If so, it's in the shifter and I've been told by 3 different sources that it's unfixable and all of them do it eventually - well this is for the V8s at least. I call bullshit but have not found anyone who can fix it - had the shifter replaced too and no luck. Not sure if a billet shifter would fix the issue - I'd assume so but have no evidence. Christ that one's annoying!

    Nothing when Idleing, and comes around past 2k revs and gets abit louder pushing past 4-5k.. The only time I hear it is windows are up and the radio us off.. I dont think it's harming my car. Im also considering a ripshift.. Don't no weather it will fix it or not..

    I must be one of the lucky ones as well. I've just clocked over 20k and it's still very solid.

    The only rattle that i have is under the gear stick. It pees me off but I'm sort of used to it too.

    I have one right in the top centre of the dash in my omega. I think it may be where the centre speaker goes if you have it? Anyone know if its easy to get off?

    yeah that would be the one - apparently it doesn't do any damage - but there's also nothing that can be done about it. At least that's what they tell me. The only reason I'm thinking of a billet shifter is to lose the rattle - not fussed about the stops or the stronger springs.

    Same here. I don't know if it's in the door or if it's in the pillar where the seat belt is. What i do know is that it's a pain in the ass.

    yay.. im not alone.

    Im having real issues isolating this one.

    It could be the door trim, however im just not 100% if it is. God damn holden. lol

    Sounds like the door trim on mine too, really annoying and it won't do it when Mr Holden technician checks it. Also the tray under the stereo rattles (it's not the removable tray I have discovered but the section underneath fixed to the car).

    And I should also add a new squeaky noise came along yesterday on a long 650km drive, found that the passenger side sun visor vibrates against the roof which has a weird squeaking noise in it. Isn't it amazing what you can hear when you turn the stereo off!

    Holden VE Rattly Door Fix

    Ok, Check this out. I did this on mine, and for the last two days no rattles... I think its fixed it

    Step 1: Remove door trim - http://forums.justcommodores.com.au...remove-ve-door-trim-not-dial-up-friendly.html
    Step 2: Put masking tape along the red box area, where the trim touches the door
    Step 3: Using Felt, or cotton cloth, put it around the clips which are in the blue boxes
    Step 4: Also using felt, put it under the black strip to stop that also rattling
    Step 5: Put it back together

    This has stopped it for me, not sure which of the steps did it ;)

    you should have changed the speakers (and maybe put some dynomat in there) while having the trim off.... that was the harder part!
