Default Rattle vibration between seats towards the back of the headliner area.

I have a 2016 F Type R, when I have the music fairly loud with base i.e. UB40 early stuff I get a rattle/vibration in the headliner in the middle area behind the seats.

If I push up on the headliner (I have the sky light glass panel that has the roll back cover) in that area which is where the rollback cover for the sky light rolls back in, the noise goes away. Its feels like something up there has come unstuck from the roof panel.

Before I go to the dealer does anyone else have this issue i.e. is there a TSB or is this a known issue?

Thanks
Simon

Probably nothing more than a clip. Unfortunately they will have to dismantle basically the entire interior trim to access it.

Music with a lot of bass is going to rattle things... It's just about unavoidable. They've done a pretty good job on the jag but different objects and materials have different resonant frequencies and it's hard to design for all of them without adding another 50 pounds to the car. I know some of the songs you're referring to and they have prolonged and higher frequency almost pure-sinewave bass notes than what is typical. The perfect setup for a rattle. Hope you're able to get it sorted--- it could be a real challenge for the dealer.

Think I can live with it as I really don't want the dealer where I live taking the inside apart. If there was a TSB I would go for it but with out factory instructions most dealers can make a real mess of things when it comes to trim.

Note I had the TSB for the difficult to fill with petrol issue. After they completed the job I checked the work and found they had round my lug nuts, incorrectly routed the over fill tube, left the heat shield for the exhaust bent down, scratch the inside of the wheel, and over lapped the wheel liner incorrectly. I corrected all of these myself.

I have the same problem but not associated with bass too loud.


The buzzing or fast rattle manifests itself on certain road surfaces.


It is in the same area you describe.


I shall endeavor to live with it.
