Reduce Rear Cabin Rattling (DIY)

Hi guyz! Just thought I share my very first cool little DIY. Hope it helps resolve your noise problems as much as it did mine. My sound shop had stuffed my deck soo much, I couldn't figure out why the rear was still rattling, until Jenny and I started talking about it a couple of weekends ago. So here ya go.....

Don't feel like reposting all the info and links, so just look here....

P.S.
Pls post ur thoughts to let everyone know if it works well!

Thanks,
Chris

mmm yes, I had rattle problems w/ the rear light as well. I used some silocon glue to seal things up, but come to think of it the dynamat would have been better.

does this actually make a big difference or is it not even noticable.

before I fixed it I used to get a HUGE rattle out of that area when pounding my subs. it's really simple: if it ratles then do the dynamat, if you don't notcice it don't worry about it

exactly like djabaley said. the difference was ENORMOUS for me, Missburgandy and RR Buggzzl.

you dont have to actaully DO the DIY to tell if it's going to make a difference. like I said, TEST FIRST to see if ur a candidate. but stuffing the rear deck and the brake lite should fix all your cabin rattling.

Make a 5" by 5" hole on the skii-pass + dynamat your whole trunk and the problem is solved. Still need to do that hole in the skii-pass!

I have the rear brake light DIY saved...email me at bigjae1976@hotmail.com and I'll send it.

Basically you put a strip of on the top of the brake light housing and on the black part of the window above the brake light opening. Hard to explain and hard to see from the pics.

One good area to damp would be the inside of the rear quarter panels. Might be challenging to get the mat back there but the damping spray would work nice.

Thanks to bigjae for sending this my way... it is the instructions with the photos, all other images on the page are busted. It might take a minute for the photos to load, but here's the DIY
