Little problems only YOU know about your car
I'll start, my car makes about 4 or 5 different rattles or squeaks and it pisses me off.

My passenger side backseat rattles when it is laid down...

When it rains, my passenger side side skirt squeaks when driving on the freeway...

My neons don't work too well when it is cold (yeah, i have neons installed - for probably about 3 years now tongue)

I lost one of the stupid bulbs behind the ac panel. I dropped it down into the shifter area. And poof, its gone. Now only half of it glows at night. Pisses me off like you wouldn't believe. Plus to replace the one bulb, I have to buy the whole board with both lights for like $70. Looks like I'm wiring an LED behind there.

The liitle LED that tells you your AC is on does not work, drives me nuts. Need to check the fuse but have yet to get around to it.

My TSRM makes about a dozen different areas rattle whitle driving and at idle.

My radio changes stations on its own.

Busted one of the clips that hold the trunk cover thing, so when you open it, it falls out of place.

The noise the belt makes.

the stupid engine bay plastics underneath are loose.
the black rubber sealer on the passenger window is loose.
my passenger front speaker rattles.
my exhaust makes a loud rattling noise because it rubs my blitz rear bumper.


I've mastered the art of the After Image Technique.

Forgot about the small leak in the driver side weather striping at the top where the glass meets the rubber, when ever it rains a few drips get in.

Also when its cold out the windows go up and down very slow and make humming sound.



Why did I buy another celica? Sometimes I don't know what I was thinking.

few, but that's good considering the age of my car...
1st. trunk shocks are shot...and that's shit considering my subs are kind of connected there when i open the trunk
2nd. peace of plastic in the trunk has a little crack and squeaks like a bitch at times...but i can't replace it because toyota dosen't make that color anymore.
3rd. the fact that i have a small oil leak, not significant enough to matter, but it anoys the hell out of me.
4th. ac dosen't work, needs to be recharged, but it's converted to r134a, so i can do that fix.
5th. missing the front driversside flormat is missing, again, cant get it because of the color
6th, and last. the centerconsole was cut to gheto fit a pos radio and a wiring harned is cut, both problems are fixed, but they anoy me because there still like that, but only i know and can tell.

Trunk shocks are shot too. thumbsdown

Driver side window wiper squeaks because the wiper always slides off the its holder. The metal holder scratched the windsheid, but you could only see it when it rains. thumbsdown

It's the cover to the roof. If I open the damn cover, it doesn't make a sound. Half-way open is the worst.

In side of my door rattles when I have my bass up.

There's a little paint chip in my spoiler. Drives me nuts when I wash my car. I need to touch it up.

It's the cover to the roof. If I open the damn cover, it doesn't make a sound. Half-way open is the worst.
Mine rattles a little when is closed. I tighted the bolts, but still does... rolleyes I keep it open most of the time. I keep the cover open coz I got the experience that I closed it all, and got stuck! That was a pain in the butt to open... I won't take that risk again. rolleyes

The person who owned the car before me put some shitty exhaust that rattles around and moves a lot, so when I hit bumps or dips I can hear it like hit ( I hope its the exhaust doing that)

and the second is the deep paint chip on the rear bumber, it stand out, and squeeky clutch.

and like everyone else the squeeking, I even had new bearings and pump put in the car, still does it when its cold.

One of my AC vents kinda broke when I put on the overlay.
There's a chip on my Carbon Fiber hoodscoop.
One rim is bent from when I slid on to a high curb which in turn created my balancing problem. If I let go of the wheel the car starts going to the right.
That's it.

i love this thread btw...for me:

When i installed my head unit and interface adapter i was lazy and didn't ground it properly...and ran the power lines right next to the speaker ones...so when my HU is on light volume i can hear whistling...and when my neons are on it's worse...it annoys the hell outta me but i'm lazy so i just turn it up happywink

my neons are also held on with twistie ties

my vizage rear keeps coming loose and i just slap on more layers of double sided tape

oh yeah...

my drivers side window goes up slower than the passenger...

I dropped a few screws into my center dash piece behind my head unit so when i hit certain rpm's i can hear tham rattle...

my driver's side floormat thing is broken so it doesn't hold the mat in and i have to straighten it every morning

the plastic part of my rear latch is cracked on the one side

my front grille is held on half with hot glue rofl

EVERYBODY WITH SIDE DOOR RATTLING WITH THEIR SPEAKERS...I just figured out the problem today. I turned the bass up to 4, but a song on and stood outside trying to see what it was. I tried squeezing both sides of the door really hard and nothing changed.
I then figured it out. Its the DOOR HANDLES. Next time you jam music, go outside of your door and pull up the handle, all rattles will be gone

my glovebox rattles, I've reorganized everything in there twice, still something keeps rattling. Also, I can hear my moonroof squeaking when I pull out of my driveway or just make slow turns over bumps

where should i start:
1. i had belt squeaking, that was changed. when i had that, at low rpms the car made a 20 year old noise, thats resolved also.
2. valve ticking.
3. driver seat makes noise if it moves alittle
4. doors rattle or speakers touch the plastic while playing music.
5. too much weird noises coming from the sunroof, rear when im going in or out of driveways.
6. drivers floormat always goes forward on one side, its only hanged from the left.
7. scratches the thief put on my trunk
8. dashboard quality cheap and too dry, very easy to sctrach.
