    Rattles and Vibrations

    Anyone experience the following on their 3dr?
    Intermittanlty windows rattle and this can get annoying. However this is only intermittent and an open and close sometimes sorts it.
    Rear view mirror vibrates and produces an annoying noise.

    Anyone experienced the above and got any suggested fixes?

    TIA

    Used black wax crayon on my driver door window rubber and it kind of sorted it (after opening the door and using a bit of gentle persuasion around the top of the window frame (inward & towards the car whilst the wndow was down!). Didn't do it from new, at about 20k it started to do it, and now since 35k+ it's stopped again. Search me?!?!?

    I thought it was my passenger headrest, so I shoved some extra sponge into apertures, then some grease on the bottom of the prongs - no difference!!

    I now wrap the seatbelt round the passenger seat when the wife's ample backside isn't keeping it planted, and it stops the rattle. I am beginning to think its the seat base / mechanism.

    I will try that tactic when I leave work as it does go away when someone sits in it!
