    Horrible rattle from rear left bose sub. Evan with bass turned to quarter.

    Hi guys

    Hope everyone had good xmas and new year.

    I need some advice. As title says i have located a horrible rattle where my bose sub is located. so am guessing either bolt as come lose or i need some sound padding put in there. Just i'm a bit stumped how to get access to it.

    Any help would be great.

    My second A3 was like this, it was really hard to stop it doing it and was a combination of the side panel but also the speaker unit itself. I improvised by getting a song that really made it rattle and adding some silicon here and there, even some around the edge of the speaker cone against the grill. Not ideal but it stopped the rattle and didn't seem to hamper the bass performance.

    Theres a screw next to the boot light which you remove and then just pull the whole side panel out, its a bit nerve racking when you first do it as you feel your going to break it but it does just clip off.

    If you do a search for stealth sub installation there will be some pictures on how to do it.
