That's exactly the problem I'm talking about. except mine will rattle sometimes when going over bumpy roads so I know it's not speaker distortion and is indeed something loose.

Let me know what your dealer tells you. I live about 2 hours away from my dealer and it takes 2 weeks to get an appointment so I rather do it myself knowing that they will most likely say they are not able to reproduce the problem.

thanks Ben


: : Anyone know how to take the inner door panel apart?
: : the rattle in my passenger door is driving me NUTS! I'm afraid if I take it to the dealer I'll get the usuall "could not duplicate problem" response that every dealer give when you complain about rattles. So I figure I'll do this myself. but I can't figure out how to take the panel off. I only see 2 screws under the door handle, but that can't be the only thing that holds the panel on.

: : anyone have experience or know of a BMW tech that can get me some info? thanks!

: Hi Jack,
: It seems you and I are in the same boat. I got my 323 Feb 12. Everything is perfect exceot the rattle or buzz you are talking about in the passenger door. It happens only when listening to certain passages of music or when the radio is on and the program has someone talking. This also only happens at middle to higher volumes. It driving me nuts too!!! I have to got to the dealer tommorrow to get my armrest installed and I will tell then to fix it!!! I will let you know what happens. Let me know if you find out anything.
