hey guys!

i am new here and actually i do look for help.

i recently got my Formentor, i am very pleased with it BUT whenever i get a little more bass from the sound system i get a freaking rattle inside both front doors (more prominent on the dirver side)...

we had several Seats (Ateca, Leon FR, Tarraco) and none of them had that... very annoying...

is there an easy fix or do i have to get my car to the dealership? (i get some sort of free inspection in 2 weeks)


cheers!

This car is likely to new to get any solid answers as yet. I would suggest referring it to your dealer and see how you get on. Giving feedback here on your experience and the solution may help others.

I had the same in my 2018 Audi S3. The vibration came from where the plastic panel on the inside touches the metal part of the door.

I ended up sticking some of the below rubber band (used for windows in houses) on the metal part of the door while lifting out the plastic. This made the plastic sit tight and not touching the metal - and bam the rattle was gone! (Please see my fine illustration below of where I put the band).
