    Techs are never trained to fix rattles. Hope they didn't scrape/scratch/scuff/etc the crap out of your interior (plus dings, scratches, chips, etc on the exterior too), like they did with a new Lexus LS when I learned that lesson the hard way. And of course they said it was like that, which pissed me off even more. Since then, I've fixed all my rattles, and with zero damage. Haven't been 100% successful every time, but no way I'd take a car to a dealer just for that, but that's just me. Good luck, and keep us posted.

    I agree with you. That is why I tried to do it on my own. Plus I want to avoid anyone during covid

    for the most part, dealer's efforts have had positive results by reducing the amount of rattle noise. however, there are still a couple of rattles that are still present . my summary update is below

    Fixed:
    1. Headliner rattle that sounded like loose change: issue was caused by loose bolt holding the XM Radio antenna to the roof and issue was fixed
    2. C-Pilars: issue caused by bent/broken clips, new ones installed and issue Fixed.
    3. Loose mounting screws for rear deck speakers; i tightened all screws because they're aftermarket speakers so this is no longer a contributing rattle.
    4. Dash rattle, passenger side, loose clips, new ones installed and issue Fixed
    Partially fixed
    1. Dash rattle, driver side, still occurs but mainly on really rough roads
    Not fixed
    1. Trunk area, the dealer couldn't resolve the issue. I believe this might be caused by a loose clamp connecting my H-Pipe to the driver-side muffler. I looked under my car and was able to physically move the muffler up and down (by grabbing the tips). i also noticed the muffler hanger is not seated inside the rubber grommet and there's a black soot-like material where the clamps connect the H-pipe to the exhaust. Passenger-side muffler is firmly in place and doesn't move. i'm taking my car to local repair shop to have the H-pipe connections welded in place
    if correcting the H-pipe connection issue resolves the trunk rattle, i can live with the less noticeable dash rattle. and... looks like i need some new rear tires, lol. i have 20K miles on the Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires (305/35 20). i welcome any recommended tire options.

    When you replace the MPSSes, get MP4Ses. Once you go Michelin, you can’t go back.

    W717661S300 is the part number for the yellow ones, they come in packs of 4. Good idea to order a bag before you do any dash work at all. I'm pretty sure you can use them to replace blue ones too, but I have to double check that.

    It’s only a color difference. The yellow, blue, and white ones are otherwise identical.

    Thanks guys. I ordered some from Amazon (pinkish) that I'm waiting to receive, to have as spares. Several 2018+ Ford owners reported them being identical, so went ahead and order them. Probably a lot cheaper than stock, and also probably made by the same company. But I typically prefer to order OEM stuff, so now that the p/n is there, I'd order those instead. Thanks again for posting that.

    rattle sounded like some metal piece floating in a hard-plastic case. the dealership told me that 3 of the clips were loose or separated and needed to be replaced. unfortunately, the dash rattle is still present on the driver side. also turned out that the loose muffler clamp and muffler was causing the trunk rattle. glad that fix worked.

    I was playing around different areas around the passenger side dash. One thing you can look at it is washer fluid pipe that hangs around the passenger side part of the hood that can rattle. Another thing is try to smack the a-pillar and see if there's any buzz coming out. ItI placed some thin strip of foam in there between the a pillar and the windshield and the rattle is gone.

    I feel like over the bumps there is a little rattle buzz around door and a pillar area on the passenger side. Can't point exactly where. I did place some foam in the glovebox area so I know it's not that.

    I took off the front trim and lost like 4 plastic tabs in the dash area. Hopefully they don't rattle now. It's a very cheap material

    My new car makes all kinds of noises when going over broken asphalt, so it's definitely NOT put well together. But as long as I don't have constant rattles, I can tolerate them. But the problem is when you have rattles like that, it's usually only a matter of time before they become permanent. Or a lot more frequent. We'll see.

    Yea I agree, my wife's kia sorento has solid interior and my 15 year old bmw has no rattles. I wish they could have spent few dollars exta to get more padding and better plastics.
