    Default Rattle / Vibe in reverse

    I have a rather loud vibration / rattle sound coming from under the hood on the passenger side. Sounds like it's close to the firewall. Happens every morning when I put it in reverse and back out of the garage with moderate pressure on the brake. It stops when I completely let off the brake or if I apply enoungh pedal pressure to stop completely.

    Seems to never happen once I've moved forward and heard the ABS self test complete.

    Anyone else have the same problem?

    Yep, I have the same problem. I don't know what it is, but when I pull out of the driveway in the morning it happens . Seems to happen more if i'm NOT on the brakes but maybe on the gas just a little . Kind of like a knocking or creaking of rubber and metal. Maybe it's just a bushing that is cold and sticky when it's cold outside. I'm bringing mine in for it's 1000 mile courtesy service this week and I will mention it to them.

    I have the 6 speed (which is a poor design I might add ). I didn't have the sound this morning. I only have about 700 miles on mine, what about you guys?

    Auto tranny. Sounds like a brake line or component rattling against the body. Like an air chisel type sound although not as loud. Can't imagine why it only happens in reverse. I'll have to let someone else hold the brake and see if I can locate the source under the hood. Lake of replies tells me it is probably a random fault. Maybe someone missed a fastener during assembly. ???

    Found the source.

    The air intake duct that travels between the air filter and the right front fender was rattling against cutout on the fender. It is supposed to be isolated from the fender with a foam gasket but the gasket was a little out of place. Only happened in reverse because of the engine torque in reverse allowed it to make contact with the fender. R&R the duct and repositioned the gasket and all is quiet again.
