Question about 2001 Saturn L-Series

Open Question

In my 2007 Saturn Vue, I get a severe rattle/flapping sound (driver's side dash) when traveling at 50 MPH or higher. It sounds like it is coming from the HVAC duct. How do I access this duct?

There is a bearing that supports the dive shaft to the rear wheels. This bearing dries out with road grime and under car washes. Greasing the bearing eliminated the whistling

remove front door window trim and place 3 or 4 beads of silicone adhesive on the inside of trim to hold it to the door frame. replace the trim and let the silicone cure overnite. It's a design flaw. I had the same problem, the dealer kept replacing it and it still rattled. After I put the sealer on it, I haven't had any noise for 35,000 miles. Good Luck!!

You are probably hearing the front stabilizer links going out. they are ball jointed on both ends and run to the struts. When they start to go, they thump a lot over small holes and cracks in the pavement.
Also the lower control arm bushings may be at fault, especially if you have had a fender bender. I would start with the stabilizer links (it's a do-it-yourself project) and then go from there.
A good way to check the links is to have someone rock the truck side to side while you hold the link (reach around the back of the tire and grab it) if you feel play in it or it moves too easily or is disconnected or broken, you need to replace it.

SOURCE: 2006 Saturn VUE - high-pitched whine above 25 mph

What you do, is take it to a shop and you drive and have someone ride with you to diagnose the issue. You never leave a veh at a shop with out a road test and a mech or tech that has some interest in finding the problems. Also run it on the lift in the shop to see if it can be duplicated. Preferablely on rollers on the ground, such as a dyno machine,, so as not to harm the drive axles, if that applies to your veh.

I hear a rattling sound when I am traveling at over 40 mph on the highway. The sound seems to becoming from behind the driver side dashboard. I have looked under the dash and in the engine compartment but...


I had a similar problem on my 2007 RX350 and it was from the plastic gas tank protective cover under the SUV. There is a small portion of the cover that extends forward beside the gas tank, and usually has a rubber piece attached to it to stop it from hitting the floor under the car. The rubber had come of mine so I had to replace the rubber. This stopped it from hitting the bottom of the car at higher speeds. Worth taking a look at?

2007 Vue door rattle


Remove the window trim at the rear of the front door. (There is a screw on the inside of the door frame at the top of the door. ) Place 3 or 4 thick beads of silicone adhesive on the inside of the trim piece. Don't put the adhesive on the alignment tabs. replace the trim and let the silicone cure overnite. I've had no problems for 35,000 miles since I did this.
