    CD player trim rattle 2009 Audi R8

    Anyone experience rattling issues coming from the CD player panel trim (located behind the driver's and passngers seat). I know it's coming from there because when I put my hand on it, the rattle will immediately stop.

    Guys come on
    This has got to be the easiest thing out there to fix

    1) confirm troubleshoot by removing the trim. It literally pulls off - a clip on each side halfway up the side, doesn't even need a tool just pulls right off. Drive around & confirm rattle gone

    if so

    2) remove rear bench, wrap the cd drive in a little cloth tesa tape so the trim piece rests on that

    I thought a rattle was the trim as well. Tore everything apart, checked the electronic units after removing the rear shelf... no change. Then driving along, needed a stretch and happened to reach up and pressed against the headliner. Noise stopped. I used a small rubber pad between the rear edge of the headliner and the rear window. Noise gone and the pad cannot be seen. Apparently, cabin acoustics are such that the sound seemed lower down near the CD.
