Slight rattle on drivers door...

Post by Bobmunkhouse » Thu Nov 02, 2017 6:26 am

Hi all,

I'm loving my Ateca but on poorly surfaced roads I get a slight rattle/buzz from drivers door....it's seems to go if I push on drivers door plastic trim.

Anything I can do or should need to talk to a garage? Would they investigate under warranty?

Thanks

I get a similar thing of very poor surfaces, but it appears to come from the air vent rather than the door. Wasn't so bad I stormed off and demanded it get fixed - was planning to ask them to look at it when it was due in for servicing.

I had the same issue and it seemed to be coming from the top of the door trim at the rear of the door. When pressing on the trim the rattle disappeared. Took the door trim off and could not see anything loose but placed a piece of soft adhesive tape from the area where the rattle came from. Voila! to my surprise the rattle had stopped and has not returned in over 2000 miles.

Hmmm is it easy to take off door trim? My skills are low and issue is only slight...

Don't you guys have a warranty on your cars? I would not touch the door trims myself, if the car is still under warranty. I would take it to the dealer and complain about the rattle.

Same here (Purchased September2017) I thought it was my air vents but I now seem to think it is my door handle, it is in stereo rattling comes from both side so annoying.
I asked the garage (Jennings SEAT) to have a look and they wanted 1/2 a day but wanted to charge me for a run around some excuse with the insurance.
Not to happy with it at present as I work away from home.
