Making Rattles Stop

hey guys, thought i'd try and give a little back after asking 10000 questions on how to install my subs. i had a pretty bad rattle problem, but as isaac has noted in several forums, the felt sticky tabs worked great. i put 2 on each side of my handle, and then wedged one up in between where the handle moves and the back of the car. i also put several on the back of my License Plate, and one right next to the latch on my gas cap. i still had some rattling coming from my tail lights, and spare area, so i took a couple towls and wrapped them around the spare jack and stuffed the area behind the tail lights with a couple more. i then stuffed an old crappy blanket in the spare tire area around and over the tire. this pretty much stopped all the rattling except a little from the rear view Mirrors, and the side Mirrors. total cost: $1.39, plus an old blanket and 3 towels, a lot cheaper than dynamat!

the fact that you spent less than $2 is also the biggest compliment you could give yourself.

the celica naturally rattles a lot. even toyota took note of this when the produced these tsb's (technical service bulletins):

ecelica.com: tsb: loose door handle
ecelic.com: tsb: various rattle noise solutions , and
ecelica.com: tsb: various rattle noise solutions warranty information
