    It's using some dampening sheets and placing it on the inner and outer skin of the door. There are brands such as Dynamat, NoiseKill and Wurth which can used for that purpose. Else let me know and I can provide you something which can be used for trial basis which is on my car as well.

    And it doesn't affect your warranty as well, I've got it done on all four doors including the boot.

    @ Teky: I think dampeners will help with NVH but not if there are loose wires, screws etc. Correct me if I am wrong. Anyway, you can check it out when we meet up for the Yelagiri drive. I could use some advise here.

    @prashantgupta84: Did you get it checked at TASS? Did they open the door panel? I am beginning to think we should also analyze the glass, rubber and plastic.

    @ Puntosat: Why try to fix something that ain't broken? That too at TASS :eek:

    Had a talk with TASS will get this resolved in first service.......(remember i have to get a new lower grill in the front fitted also....).
    The noise is like that of air blowing through a number of small stones or dust particles....its irritating sometimes.........

    Hi, In my 2012 MJD sometimes I could hear the rattle noise from top hood (near by centre rear view mirror) if I keep my hand in that area it stops, will I stick any sound damper paper?

    My Linea's C-Pillar has been rattling since the day i received the car. The issue has been isolated to defective spot weldings within the C-Pillar. I have been chasing this up with the Fiat Sr Management for 6 weeks now. The issue still remains unresolved.
