I have a 2004 Santa Fe that had a similar rattle on the luggage racks. What I found was the trim at the front of the drivers side rack was a little loose. I added a small amount of black trim adhesive along the seam of the trim where to two parts meet. That solve my rattle issue. Hope this helps!

Vibrating, noisy Toyota rav-4 roof rack

  1. Take off the ceiling panel,
  2. Take the panel off, usually have several screws behind the handles, seat belt mount bars, pup the small plastic cover on those bars and you will see the screws.
  3. fter you open th panel, check the losing screw for your roof rack , see if it is with a steel washer, If with the washer, you just need to tighten it, otherwise it is better to add a waser, you don’t have to worry about it again. But you have to check and tight one at a time.
  4. good luck.

Hope this can help.
