So . . this Malvern Wells?

Malvern Wells is a village and civil parish near Great Malvern in the Malvern Hills District of Worcestershire, England. The parish of Malvern Wells, once known as South Malvern, was formed in 1894 from parts of the civil parishes of Hanley Castle, Welland, and the former parish of Great Malvern, and owes its development to the 19th century boom years of Malvern as a spa town. Malvern Wells is a centre of commercial bottling of Malvern water.

Seems to me that we've been down this road before. Wasn't it blamed on the Trunk Monkey?

Had the same issue with the strike plate that Willie had, as a matter of fact he showed me one day way back when. The harded pin is pressed into the holder and there is a minute amount of movement between them. it's like they should have applied just a little bit more force when they pressed it in. I took them off and had a welder tack the pin to the plate (from the back side).
That fixed the clicking, but last year I started to hear a clunking, clicking noise from behind my seat and found the nuts that hold the top assembly in place against the frame of the trunk had worked loose and the assemble was rattling, I tightened them and the noise went away.....Now I did have my top assembly replaced about 4 years ago and maybe the tech didn't tighten them as much as he should have, but I would still give the nuts a going over.......Just a thought.

Sorry for awaking this old thread, but I'm trying to find the exact same rattle/noise that was described in the title.

My noise sounds like two hard plastic pieces rattling together. The noise is coming from right behind my right ear. The noise only occurs when the top is up, when the top is down, no noise. I've look through and found a loose cable and secured it but that did not stop the noise. Also if i press hard backwards against the seat, the noise will quiet or stop temporarily.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Umm.... I thought I recalled the cup holder to be a culprit of some noise in that area?

I think I may have found it. Starting search for cup holder rattle on Solstice site and found reference to the large black plastic piece behind the seat. I think it is the plastic piece vibrating against a screw. I put fabric tape between them to see if there was any change. Can hardly hear it now, must be where it is. I'll try some felt to close it down completely.

Pictures of exact location would help others here. Thanks!

If a rattle with the top up: Check the Tulip Panel behind the seats. With the top in the up position, a bar from the top mechanism rests against the edge of the Tulip Panel. The bar is wrapped with an OEM plastic tape. The tape wears out, and then the Tulip Panel will rattle against the bar. Replace the tape with self adhesive silicone tape, problem solved. (if it has been rattling for a while, it may have chipped the edge of the tulip panel as well)


Old thread but this absolutely worked for me! Five years tracking this down and this was it! Thank you!

On mine it was the seat belt guides. Rattled like crazy. A little silicone quieted them up good.
