found my interior rattle!!

with the exhaust being as loud as it is and dumped right under the cab, it sends the vibrations straight up through the cab. at 75 mph when im at crusing RPM's thats just the right spot to start this subtle vibration lol. well i tracked it down to the rear of the headliner today. right above the rear slider.

any ideas of how to go about fixing this? should i wedge a folded piece of paper up there to fill the gap between the shell and the headliner? or what?

trying to avoid taking out that stupid pushpin back there. lol

taking out the front one for the OHC was a b!tch itself.

Glue perhaps? Or maybe some silicone.

maybe the constant rattle has loosened up the plug you don't wanna remove and the only way to fix the rattle is by replacing the plug.....

I would remove your third brake light and make sure it's not part of the wiring clip that is rattling. Taking down the headliner is not an easy task (trust me). I would stick some foam in through the third brake light slot as a last resort. You sure it's not the plastic interior C pillars? They have a tendency to rattle in the corners.

Its not. I had a friend hold that part of the back of the headliner while I was driving and it went away

Here's how you can fix the rattle.

1 - Remove headliner and all interior trim
2 - Dynomat interior
3 - Fabricate rollcage
4 - Take that badass girl to the dunes!!!!!!
