    Apparently I'm the only one who's not deaf, so car rattles drive me NUTS. anyway, new one. I think it's because my half wit sister slammed the rear door, but if that's the case, it still needs corrected.

    I asked my my wife to drive while I rode in the back right. Identified the rattle instantly as coming from the seatbelt retractor area. I couldn't get the trim piece off, and don't want to break it. It goes in the 11th anyway, so I'll tack it on the list.

    Anyone else have have this issue?

    I've seen threads about some noise coming from the seatbelt and the service center putting some special tape to remove the sound. I don't recall hearing it referred to as a rattle though.
