Caused by the heat?
OK, maybe the rattle is in the door, or in the front passenger-side of the dash, not sure. Something I have noticed the past few days is that it seems to be affected by heat. In the mornings on my way to work, I barely hear it anymore, if at all. My vehicle sits in a garage all night and is kept fairly cool. But during the day, at work, it sits out in the sun. The past week or so it's not been uncommon to get in at the end of the day and have the outside temp. read over 100 (121 one day last week). On the drive hom, on the same streets that I don't hear anything in the morning, I hear it the entire time. Could the heat be causing something to expand, thus causing the rattle?
Oh, and when I said it wasn't in the door after removing the panel, that was only after removing the outer plastic panel. I have not been able to figure out how to remove the inner panle entirely as part of it seems attached somewhere inside that I can't get to. Anyone know how to completly remove that panel, including the window and motor and all so I have just a hollow door frame?
