Thumbs up Mystery rattle tracked down!

I happened to push against the rear quarter of the truck and felt it move slightly, closer inspection showed that the lower star head bolt holding the bodywork to a tab on the frame had pulled through.
This is difficult to spot since it's almost completely shrouded by the bumper end.

Worth checking if you have a rattle in that area.

I fixed it with an oversize washer under the bolt.

Default Re: Mystery rattle tracked down!

I dislike mystery rattles... I'm glad you figured that out. I used to have one in my Pontiac that I never figured out.
