Rattling sound from the exhaust

The metal shielding around your catalytic converter could be rattling or the rubber donut that holds the rear tailpipe could be bad. When your car is cold shake your tailpipe and see if you can reproduce the noise. If you can your tailpipe donut is likely bad. Three dollars at any auto parts store. If it does rattle when you shake your tailpipe then the heat shield for your convert could be loose. You need to tighten it up another piece of metal between it and the converter to keep it from rattling. If you hear the rattle when you go over bumps too then your exhuast is probably, loose. Crawl under there and stake shaking things, I am sure you'll find the problem

I have replaced both brake light bulbs but they still won't work, the third brake light in the rear window does work.

Definitely sounds like a fuse. Keep your bulbs from the original lights. A blown fuse is black, and usually has the resistor blown to pieces and rattling around inside the plastic casing =) Good Luck!

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!

The fittings and bodywork on my car rattle like a bus when going along the road. Is there any way to prevent this?

The plastic ledges either side of the rear parcel shelf are each held by three 10mm bolts. Take them off and stick pices of cloth to the back of them so that when you bolt them in the cloth is between the ledge and the interior trim. Wedge bits of rubber between the front of the ledges and the moulding either side of the rear seat back to stop the ledges flexing under the weight of the shelf. Put sticky tape on the rear shock absorber mounting covers in the boot to keep them still. If you have rear speakers in the ledges they may vibrate and need little bits of rubber to stop this. Check that the front passenger seat isn't rattling in its runners when unoccupied. I cured this by bending the runner channel slightly with a hammer and a piece of strong tube (an old jack handle). The sides of the dash moulding may rattle against the windscreen pillar mouldings-jam a strip of rubber between them. The cup holder (near the ash-tray) is a terrible rattler-wedge it with rubber or sponge tape. The rear view mirror needs atiny bit of rubber pipe between the front of the bracket (where there is a little blob sticking out) and the windscreen. I hope this helps.

1999 Cavalier Speaker Removal

The rear speakers you need to take at least one side off. What I mean is the part when your sitting in the back seat the plastic piece were the armrest is. After you take at least one or both of these out just fold the seats down and the rear window carpet piece will have four plastic push pins then just pull it straight back and its out. After the carpet is out just unclip the speaker and pop it out then unplug the harness.

The front first you need to take the screw out of the small piece up by the side mirror and pull that piece out, then pull the metal clips for the window cranks, if you have manual windows. then the screws in the grab handles, the rest is just plastic clips. Just either get a specialty tool for this or I use a butter knife and slowly pry the door panel up and work it around the entir panel until its loose. sometimes no matter how hard you try to be carefull the clips will break though. They are failry cheap if they do and autozone should have them. after the panel is off it is pretty simple just take out the screws holding the speaker and pop it out then unplug the harness.

I have 2003 E500 MB. Ihave rear speaker rattle problem when there is strong base music. I cheched the speaker subwoofer it did not blown out. when I put my finger on speaker it stops rattle. Do I need to...

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.

Sound from rear

This is more than likely the rear spoiler. When exceeding 45 mph, the spoiler will deploy but is hard to hear due to the sound of the engine, when decelerating back to 10 mph (or less), the spoiler will return to its stored position. This sounds exactly like the experience you described, so I am guessing that this is the culprit.
There are a few ways to confirm:
1: Seated in the driver's seat, reach beneath the dashboard console, searching for a button/switch. This will be located at the bottom of the console (roughly, right above where your left shin/knee would be positioned when driving). If you find a switch, push it and see if it deploys the Spoiler. You will need to have the key and turned so that electricals may function.
2: Look above your rear window. You will likely see a black piece of plastic above it which would be the spoiler. Look at the gap between it and the window.. ...looking about 1 fit in from the side of the Spoiler, you will likely see the metal hinge that the moves the Spoiler up.
3: This is the most fun solution: drive the car over 45 with a friend driving behind you. Just to be safe, take it up to 50 or 60 and have them watch to see if it deploys. You will not be able to see it from within the beetle unless you lower the back seat and have somebody crawl all the way into the back (which would be terribly unsafe and uncomfortable).

Let us know if this is indeed the issue and have fun with your bug!
