Help for a 99 Outback hatch door rattle
Posted 05 March 2006 - 01:32 AM
How do I fix it, as the Reno dealer had no clue? It drives me crazy!

Now, excercising great care for life and limb, remove the interior cover from the rear hatch and have someone ride in the rear while you recreate the noise driving over bumps.
Unless the door bumpers are gone and the door itself is rattling, the locking and opening linkage may be the culprit.
Harmonic rattle at idle sounds to me like it may be from loose heat shields on exhaust.

We road in the back and it sounded like the hatch. I stuffed a couple of rags near the latch and the rattle was gone at idle (harmonic) and on slow rough roads.
Any suggestions on tightening the hatch, is it the latch or the hinges?
