post all ur problems with ur el with solutions if u have them

for me, Dash rattle very VERY loud, can't do anything about ..


rear windows make a really loud noise when open for the first
time of the day, as if something was sticking to it, tried wd40
didn't work.


when park outside at nite for a while, then start up, and move
the doors and driverside roof would make little noises.

Quick Fixes !!!

Dash rattles? = Use 3M dbl sided tape where rattles are present.
Window/Power Squeaks? = Use SILICON based Spray, Spray along window sills/side/tracks where the Glass Platen SLIDES.

I've got rattling of the plastic cover that covers the seat belt, both driver side and passenger. I've tried putting foam inserts but it still rattles. Suggestions?
Another prob is that my pwr-windows are a bit slow in going up. Should I get new motor?

Spray it !!!

Try spraying it with silicon FIRST.... It's probably caked with gunk of some sort. As for the rattle? 3M double sided tape works wonders....Even works with rattling license plates when you got the SUB all BOOMBASTIC'.....

I've got what sounds like a marble inside of a small plastic box being flipped and rolled around in one of my right side doors or B-pillar. It happens when I make a turn in the car, or make a hard acceleration from a stop or a hard stop. It doesn't happen all of the time. Almost as if whatever is rolling around gets stuck temporarily until a hard stop or turn jarrs it loose again.

Also, occassionally there would be a buzzing coming from around the right rear speaker, which I believe is the plastic somewhere around there rubbing against each other due to the vibration from the rumbling bass coming from the speaker. This happens more often in colder weather. I believe it's where the plastic from the C-pillar meets up with the ledge. I've had the fix for the rear ledge already done, but this problem still comes back once in a while, but not as much as before.

Everytime I bring in my car in and ask to have the "rolling marble" investigated, they take my car for a test drive to pinpoint where the sound is exactly coming from, and the "marble" stops rolling around. I've pulled open the bottom part of the B-pillar myself, but found nothing. I want to remove the inside door panels myself, but am hesitatnt of screwing something up that would prevent me from getting the inside door panels back on correctly.

The rear ledge thing doesn't bother me so much anymore...I just crank the volume on the stereo and then it goes away from too much vibration. But the "rolling marble" continues to piss me off!

Ahem!!!

Yo' RiceBoy!!! Seems like the ride you have has become very personal to you ? and to you ONLY...Bet you the speaker you talking about must be peelin' from the grill itself or has just vibrated away from the speaker frame...That's what happen to the old stock speakers...Unless it's been replaced bt a POLYPRHOPELENE type which i did on mine JBL/JL/KENWOOD are best for them IMO. As for the rolling sound of marbles ? Betcha there is a screw that fell in there somewhere or a plastic retainer that fell out sometime ,somewhere. Those are just mu HUMBLY hunches!!!!

CL's are also $15,000 more (about $18,000 more for the Type-S)!

And that's in our Canadian pesos!

I could buy a Hyundai Accent for that amount (not like I would) :mhihi:

WD-40 vs. Silicone Lube

Put it this way guys. WD-40 is meant for loosening stubborn metal parts. Don't use it on rubber seals or weather stripping. As mentioned above, the Silicone Lube is for rubbers and plastics and it should free your problems. I had a similar squeeking issue with my Del Sol's removable roof panel so I sprayed it but it only lasted for a few weeks before I needed to do it again. It's a small price to pay for a little relief though!
