Sadly I can't say the same. I need the music on all the time to hide all the ticks and rattles.Kris said:enjoying silence........

Unlike any other car I have ever owned, I have never been able to immediately find the sourses of ticks and noises in my MO. That is because sounds are easily reflected off of the interior and they appear to be coming from somewhere else. I have had ratteling noises from my dash, which were really my coffee cup ratteling in the holder, pillar noises on the left which were created by the seatbelt clip hitting the seat on the right, rattelling noises from inside my lunch bag even sometimes appear to be coming from under the steering column, etc. etc.special-k said:

I haven't been able to determine yet if the "fluttering tick" I'm hearing in my left ear is coming from the door or the B-pillar. There's something making noise in the dash (I know there are threads...) and something coming from the rear area when I go over a sharp bump.
Thanks for the advice. Actually I automatically do 1, 2, and 3 because I am hard of hearing in my right ear!GripperDon said:I don't know if this will help for you BUT
Contrary to conventional wisdom it has worked for me in find the source of interior noises.
1. Plug one ear well.
2. Cup your hand around the other ear to create a megaphone effect.
3. Rotate your head to determine the direction of the sound source.
Now I know this may look and sound silly, so do it alone and secondly keep watching traffic. I was nearly driven crazy by a "noise in my 300M and I just had to find it. I also did it having the Grippee drive, yes she did "snicker and laugh" but I get a lot of that from her and am somewhat used to it.
