In Reply to: Rattle from the back end.... posted by Neil on October 23, 2000 at 14:09:44:

I went over a bad bump a little too fast (about 10 MPH) Friday and the bump got me somewhere in the back end of the car. I now notice a rattle when I go over small bumps and when pass through rough intersections.

I'm not 100% sure that the rattle wasn't there before now, but I just now noticed it. I have heard this same kind of rattle from other vehicles that I have driven (mostly Trucks). Any ideas?

'99 2.3

I also developed a rattle in the rear of my '00 M. After checking the battery and tool kit the dealer discovered it was the fuel line running from the gas tank hitting against the body. They lowered the tank and wrapped the line. No more rattle.
