Hi folks,

 

I know it has been discussed a few times over here, but I can't find an answer that fits my problem. 

I have a rattle coming from the rear passenger door/trunk that is noticeable ONLY over 45 mph. It is steady, but the rattle sound is rhythmic (the ''tempo'' changes, goes fast to low). Sounds like a wire touching a panel.

Since two weeks, It is getting louder and the stereo can't hide the sound no more. I've looked around the trunk, seat, inside the wheel and everything looks solid. Had this problem since the beginning (almost 3 years). Has you know, my dealer wasn't able to fix the problem. I got used to it, but now it is getting too loud.

 

Any help, advise would be appreciated.

Verify that the rubber on the torsion bars, that support the trunk lid, is centered. 

It keeps the bars from touching each other and from touching the underside of the rear deck.

If your car is still in full warranty, take it to the dealer and don't take "can't fix it" for an answer.

I've had the same problem for a while and can't find the fix. I've even put towels between the torsion bars and trunk lid and that doesn't do anything.

I've been to two dealers for that problem, both wasn't able to help me. In fact, I think the Fusion as so many rattles, they just quit fixing them. :)

This summer, I'll try to fix some of them.

Today I changed my tires ( winter rims to summer rims) and noticed a sound from the rear passenger suspension while jacking the car. When I ''shake the car'' with my hands, I can hear a squeaky noise coming from the suspension components, similar to what i hear in the car. My next oil change is for next month and I'll get it checked at the same time. Sounds like a faulty bushing. Rattle ''might'' be found.

Rattle FOUND!!!! If you look at the picture, I'm pointing the ''cardboard'' piece that was not placed properly. It was touching the metal body and was causing the rattle. I've replaced it behind the rubber seal and haven't hear the rattle since. A 2 seconds fix that took me months to find haha.
