Yes! That is the purpose of those rubber guides. They actually should be half compressed when hood is latched. Many cars have adjustments for these!

Rear seat back not securly latching slack allows

If you want a quick and inexpensive way to fix this immediately and have it last a long time just take black electrical tape and stretch it tightly over the seat catch/latch this will take up the slack without having to try to adjust the seats while at the same time creating a cushion between the two metal latches and catches which should dampen the annoying sounds of the rattling.Hope this works.
Happy Motoring!!

Hood release wont engage

The hood bumpers are worn or misaligned. After pul;ling the vever, push at one end of the hoods front section as if your trying to rattle it. Most the time they do release. If it doesn't try the oposite side this way. Upon opening it if possible work the latch manually to see if it does work. If it does use lubraplate lithiuim grease on all movable parts

Rattle from rear supention on uneaven road surface

Could be the door panel rattling around.
the main other squeak culprit in these models is the latch and pin that locks the rear seats upright. If these get slightly worn or are not properly and tightly adjusted, they can cause the most annoying squeak! Easy to check this one. just fold seats down and drive and see if the noise goes.
it would be better if you tied electrical tape around the latch.

Has anyone ever complained about a rattle or buzz coming fron the lower right hand corner area around the windhield? I had the w/s replaced recently and have had a noise ever since. The w/s company looked...

If the rattle is repeatable, try pushing down on either side of the Instrument Panel at the A pillars. If the rattle does not go away, it may be the hood flushness adjusting plastic bolt rattling within the hood hinge. Open the hood and in the hood hinge assembly you will see a hood flushness adjusting bolt. This is the suspect part. Turn the bolt head 1/4 - 1/2 turn counter clockwise. This will ensure full contact of the bolt head to the hinge. Close the hood and try to repeat the rattle. If the hood flushness adjusting bolt is the source of the noise, you can also grasp the rear of the hood (near the windshield) on either side and move it up and down. If the bolt is loose, the hood will have up-and-down looseness. Another issue to be aware of: This noise also may be described as a creak/squeak or sometimes as a pop/snap. The source is the styrofoam block glued to the headliner in both forward corners (at the top of the A-pillar). The styrofoam block, if mis-positioned slightly, can contact the sun visor mounting bracket causing the noise. The noise can be intermittent and can also be affected by temperature (usually occurs when top of vehicle is heated by the sun, but sometimes occurs only when the vehicle is cold). Repair is to use a razor blade and trim the styrofoam block at the point of contact. DO NOT try to remove and re-position the styrofoam block - you'll break it! It is held to the headliner with a really strong adhesive.

Rattle/Vibration from front of vehicle when idling at stop

Hi and welcome to FixYa. Please try this:
GO out to the car, and lift up on the hood. Does it raise a bit and rattle? If so;
Open the hood, and look at the perimeter of the front radiator support. You will see 2 small rubber thingys, that look like that they are screwed onto the metal that is holding the radiator. Unscrew them a little, and close the hood. Pull up on the hood and see if the rattle goes away. If not, repeat unscrewing the rubber things until the lift disappears.

A FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be greatly appreciated for my assistance.

My mazda 626 rattles when in drive and the ac is on

It may be the catalytic converter or exhaust pipe heat shield(s), with the park brake set and ac on at ilde push on the sheet metal shields with a broom stick and see if the noise stops. It works best with someone in the car to listen for noise changes.
