Most likely the speaker's center dust cap came loose (this is common on Audis, and maybe on M-B cars too). Just use a little glue and glue it back on and the rattle stops.

You have a blown subwoofer. The only option is to replace the speaker, unfortunately they cannot be repaired.

I need to look at my sub, too

While the rear subwoofer does fail, it is often misdiagnosed because of a rattle in the vicinity.

Try removing the little fold away hooks near the subwoofer (philips screws) and see if your problem goes away.
If it is still there, loosen the panel and see if it goes away.
If it does not, more than likely the speaker has in fact failed.

Most subwoofer buzzes have been either the little fold away hook or the wire harness just behind the subwoofer.
Actual speaker failures are much more rare.

Rear speaker rattles in 02 Montero Limited

That cover doesn't come off - It's screwed (4) from behind. You have to take the upper trim piece off (and handle) to remove the bottom trim piece and access the subwoofer. If your sub is like mine, the foam all the way around the sub has torn away, making it rattle. There are only 4 screws holding the sub in place, and it's sticky taped to the wall, so you may have to pry it off. Hope this helps!

Saturn L200 2003 speaker replacement

i just got a four speaker upgrade with alpine type rs. the front doors are 6.5 inches and the rear are about 5 1/4 inches and are a huge pain to get out, mine had to be cut out. be careful if u are going to get component speakers because the door tweeter are super small and hide the screw for the door panel and u will probably have to cut a new hole some where to fit them in. since these saturns arent known for their sound quality, i suggest that you either do rear deck speakers, like im about to do, or get cheap new speakers for your doors and a subwoofer or two. my car has almost no bass even with the alpine type rs. i hope this can help you out
