Hi guys,

I have some annoying rattles coming from both door panels and the rear hatch when going over bumps or playing loud music. It stops when I push against the panels with my arm. Is this a common issue and something I just need to live with or are there any simple fixes? I was thinking about taking off the panels and putting some extra sound deadening/ cushioning in the panels. Any suggestions for the rear hatch or panels?

I haven't experienced any rattles from the doors in my ST205 however it's a pretty easy job to take the door card off and have look to see if there's anything loose or likely to vibrate. You could fit additional acoustic insulation if you're really keen. The products here https://www.deadening.co.uk/ seem to get good reviews.
