    Guys, I have a lot of rattling in my car. I have tried giving my car to the A.S.S. more than once but it has been of no help. So I thought of doing some DIY & need some pointers from you guys. The rattling occurs only on rough or wavy surfaces.

    1) The bigger sound is coming from the rear. I thought its the aftermarket parcel tray. Its an MDF tray. My car has an aftermarket ICE. Then i thought its the warning triangle. I cant seem to understand where the sound is coming from.

    2) A slight grrrrrr sound coming from inside the dashboard.

    Issue 1, I think it may be coming from your rear seats. Most of the Punto's has this problem. You can fix this yourself.
    Issue 2, I am clueless.

    I think you should consider sound deadening.

    check if the seats are locked properly. sometimes my rear seat used to get unlocked and also the warning triangle or some other small things used to slide under the seat from the boot. then some sound came when going over uneven roads.
    i have faced this problem and a friend of mine had also faced. it was fixed in ASS. the problem was some wires brushing against each other under the dashboard. similar noise used to come from the hornpad also due to similar problem. its been rectified successfully

    Finally got rid of all noises - For seats it was loose screw and spring. It took 2 hours for service guy to diagnose and fix,the whole seat had to be removed into pieces and fix again and for rear noise it was lock. Good job done by Techno Auto A.S.S. :)
