    A pirate walked into a bar, with a steering wheel sticking out of the top of his pants. The bartender was like, "Hey, Pirate, what's... What's up with that steering wheel sticking out of your pants?" The pirate says "Yarg! It's driving me nuts!"

    Sure enough my rattle from my "door" came back this morning, so I just decided to hold the A-pillar and of course it stopped, so thank you for this small tip. Will shove some felt down in that spot, should be easy.

    Now I just need to figure out what this rattle is in the bottom of my door panel when I close my door. I'm still really not feeling like pulling off my door panel, especially since the coupe has plenty more screws and clips, might have the dealer do that one. It seriously sounds like there's a small screw or something loose in between the door and the door panel. :banghead:

    Sure, GL!

    Yeah, I think your trepidation about removing the door panel is totally valid. Any way you can tap/pound around the door panel to try to isolate the general location of the noise? Maybe that’ll be some kind of clue.

    Both a pillars are now silent!

    It sounds like a loose clip or piece of plastic at the complete bottom of the door panel. I tried pulling it away from the door in the hopes that it may just fall out (whatever it is) but I didn't have any luck. I need the dealer to look at my squeaky brake pedal anyways, I already lubed it twice and it keeps squeaking

    Nice! Did you do the electrical tape trick?

    oh, that’s weird. Hopefully it’s a quick fix.

    Nope I used some black felt I had laying around since I couldn't find my roll of electrical tape. Worked just as well I'm sure.

    And I'm hoping so, I will probably take the car in next week some time, busy week this week then out of town next weekend. Will report back with findings/results after I finally get it into the dealer

    I have no gripes other than panel fit makes it look like the car was assembled in someone's barn and I had to have the infotainment system replaced because it kept freezing up and acting stupid, taking about 2 minutes to boot up. Oh, and the exhaust sound when stepping a little harder on the "go" pedal inside the cabin when the windows are closed sounds a bit choppy and cheap. Having said all of that, I do love the car.....just wish Honda would pay a LOT more attention to panel gaps/fit.

    I looped my passenger side seat belt thru the passengers seat back lever. It holds the buckle close to the seat and no more buffeting in the wind.

    Quick update: After the A-pillar trick, + looping the passenger seat belt through that seat’s side lever, everything is still quiet as a ghost! Went for a nice, relaxing drive last night, and just cruised with no odd squeaks or rattles. :drive:

    Shout out to @Masked for the tip about the A-pillar, and @pdrumns for the seat belt tip!

    Does it only happen when you're forced to come in on Saturday? That'd be greaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat. (Sorry, nobody else seemed to make reference to your Office Space quote). :)

    I pulled door panels off of mine, to swap leather arm rests in for the abrasive cloth ones.
    They aren't difficult at all ... do a quick YouTube search, and you can have it off in about 5 minutes.
