123d M-Sport rattles ??

4 posts in this topic

Just a quick question, before I go ranting and raving at the dealership ...

My girlfriend has a 58 plate (late 2008) 123d M-Sport 3 door hatchback, and it is a gorgeous machine, but it has developed the most annoying rattle.

It appears to be coming from behind and below the climate controls, but no matter what angle I get myself in, I can't get my arm up behind the dash to find anything loose.

It's only really apparent when pulling away in first gear, and during the first 500rpm or so of second (seems to disappear after about 1600 rpm).

Has anyone else experienced strange rattling noises from their 1'er ??

No sorry.

However, take the radio out and see if you can see anything.

Ah, actually, you sure it is not the trim under the climate that is loose??

There is a plate between the fascia and the ashtray on the bottom, it is on clips and can come loose, put your hand underneath and pull up.
