i cant figure it out, i only have 2 major rattles right now but this one is driving me crazy.

it is coming from above my head somewhere in the area of the rearview mirror/its bracket/ or where the headliner meets the windshield.

it only happens when i hit a little bump.

the other is coming from the way back, i suspect it is the seatbelt in the headliner. i will check that tomorrow

anyone else had this?

My 09 Outback has a rattle in a similar place. I THINK it's coming from the black sunroof trim that sits behind the headliner. I tried, quickly, stuffing some Ensolite behind the map lights to no avail.

One day this summer, I plan on pulling down the headliner and dynamatting the roof and ensoliting the headliner. Hopefully that'll help quiet things down a bit.

EDIT - FIXED ONE!!!

you where correct, it was the plastic in bewteen the headliner in 3 spots.

right above the dome light area, and on each side behind the vanity mirror.

i shoved some fabric between them and its gone!

looks like it is the plastic inner portion of the rear hatch. im going to let the dealer deal with that one. and get a free detail out of the deal

so happy!

no photos, but i will take some this week.

i believe my sound in the back will require removing the whole real hatch plastic interior cover...
