things that ratlle...

i got my sound system installed and noticed that a lot of things rattle like crazy when i turn on my system. The first thing that rattled was the back License Plate...but by adding some dynamat in my car. Next thing i noticed was the gas tank lid. the whole thing vibrates like crazy. Fixed that with some adhesive foam inside the lid. But now im stuck...i replaced my windshield wipers (all 3) because some asshole bent them a little while ago. Ever since, my rear vibrates like crazy when my sytem is on. Any ideas on how to stop your rear wiper blade from vibrating?

Yah, the stock metal blade does rattle. Its the metal pivot arms attached to the metal base. I suppose you could replace it with an aftermarket plastic one?

1- there is this product you can find at home depot that is like dynamat and does the same function but its way cheaper. use that to cover all ur rear
2- get rid of the rear wiper blades, you usually dont need them already

Get those rubber cabinet stoppers from Home Depot for your hatch window so the glass rests on the body. That will stop most of the vibrations from your wiper. wave
