When in high gear at 40 mph, I get a really loud rattle which sounds like it is coming from the passenger side door. It sounds like a plastic on plastic rattle which vibrates along with the engine vibration and exhaust. It only rattles at about 38 mph to 43 mph, when engine is lugging in high gear. Anyone else have this problem?

There’s an earlier post about the muffler joint, there are two rubber seals that need replacement. That or you have loose heat shields. Get underneath if the heat shields are fine then it’s the muffler joint gasket.

Cowl panel? Clips are known for breaking, causing the corner flap to well....flap!

Just a reminder to pay attention to the original post dates. In this case, the originator of the thread posted in Jan 2010.

Maybe its the new format with the recommending reading stuff at the bottom that may or may not be current that is dredging up these old threads.
