Be careful, your steering wheel is on the wrong side of the car!
kidding but feels strange to see my car in the mirror.
I have a slight rattle sometimes when i drive on rough roads but sounds different from yours, probably comes from somewhere else.

metal rattling sound is from the light there. open it up by using a screw driver. 2 nut inside. open it as well. see the plastic thing..its hitting the metal roof. thats why got metal sound. stuck some foam in and you be good....


if your steering horn there got plastic sound. there is another solution...

@cataclysmseng Thank you so much for the photo!

I believe mine is coming from driver side rather than the top light.
It could be coming from steering wheel column as you mentioned, did you find a fix for this too?

Care to share information? thanks in advance!
