I have a popping sound coming from my right back interior


Need more information than that. Could be a loose shock. When do you hear it most? When do you hear it least? Does it sound like a rattle or deeper thud? Could even be the exhaust hanging loose. You say interior but I'm guessing right rear. Is it braking ok?

Cannot reach the top of the rear struts from the trunk of my 2003 Ford Taurus, I also tried reaching them from the inside, it seems I have to reach them from the back seat, I just dont know how to remove...


you need to remove the seat to remove the deck... pull up on the lower half of the seat, once that is outta the way there are 2 bolts holding the backrest of the seat on. remove them and pull up

My 2003 Ford focus is making a rattling sound by the driver side in the engine when I go over a bump or pot hole what could this be?


There are a number of things which can do that. If someone did not properly fasten the aircleaner down it will rattle. You can get a rattle out of the shielding for your Catalytic converters and sometimes gravel will get caught in the shielding and rattle with every bounce.

There is a good possibility the rattle is your front brake pads which is why they make a compound to glue the pad to the caliper. To check this, just lightly hit the brakes enough to make the calipers work and if the noise is reduced or stops, then that is your problem. Do this when going over the bumps and potholes.

Another possibility is the joint from the exhaust header to the Catalytic pipe. There is a round metallic gasket usually called a "donut" which can work loose with engine vibration. This will sometimes chirp when you go to Reverse and back to a forward gear.

I hope one of these will solve your problem.

The doors do not close properly. Every time you hit a bump in the road the doors rattle.


I have this on my 2003 Expedition also. The doors get "loose" on the hinges and they can be adjusted at a garage. I have mine tightened every few years - usually when it's in for other service - the charge is minimal.

Our 2003 kia spectra has a metalic rattle when you drive over uneven pavement or speed bumps. we ckeck suspension brakes wheel bearings shocks exshaust what is it


The heat shields that are positioned between the exhaust pipe and floorboard or between the exhaust pipe and sensitive electrical components are made of very cheap, thin, tin-like metal. When they rust on one side, one of the tabs comes loose and the whole shield will vibrate especially when accelerating. Since you are getting the noise when you hit a bump, you might check the area where you stow the spare tire (loose tools may be vibrating against the metal). Also the plastic protective pieces behind front bumper sometimes tear and will "flap' against the car and sound like a metallic vibration when you hit a bump especially if you were stuck in snow recently. Look for loose plastic pieces.

Doors rattle when going over large bumps in the road


electrical tape the strikepins then loosen the strikepins with a pipe wrench and, readjust tighten and, remove the tape.
Sometimes the strike pins have a plastic sleeve if this is missing you must replace the strikepins because their diameter will be too small for the latch jaws and will rattle.
