underseat noise

Post by evdok » 20 Dec 2015, 13:27

For about a week i kept hearing a what i can only describe as an item sliding forward & backward, left to right on a plastic surface, it was doing my head in to the point i wanted to book it in, usually i do what i can before i give up & book it in but the weathers been crap so couldn't tackle the problem, today seemed a nice day to wash the beast & have a look at the noise problem, i knew it was coming from around the seat area so had a good look around & can only see one obvious location which was the vent under my seat, so i tapped it several times & could hear a rattling sound, my fingers were too short to feel anything so i got a torch & look into the vent, i could just about see a coin so i kept tapping the vent until i could see it more clearly, found a old coat hanger & managed to remove a £2,£1 coins, i am now rattle free :d , what a crap design.
Cheers
