I had a rattle clicking sound and had the earth strap replaced with a newer version, this cured the problem. Static build up and discharge from earth to the body could be the problem the problem. Ask the dealer to change it.

Happy driving.

The winter is back, as is the rattle. Doesn't sound like an electric issue...

Ticking, clicking, rattling...

The rattles are likely plastic and the dry lube widely available "may" help. No doubt it will be a wiring harnes now I have said that ! ;)

Well, no way to locate the plastic part or wiring harness... I'll just turn up the volume of my Meridian... :mrgreen:

Once more I am sure :mrgreen: that I finally solved the problem.

On the right top side of the front bulkhead there is a wire harness (insulated in some silver stuff). The attachment was somehow loose or shaky.

Fixed it. Seems to have solved my problem.

Well, at least I hope so.

Thanks, it's so we'll know where to look if we get the same problem, and know what to do. A picture is better than a thousand words. :D
