Yeah its the rear view mirror contacting against the bezel thats holding it, i figured sticking something inbetween the two would probably make it stop but wasnt sure what would work the best to stop the rattle.

I have rattling from my rear left speaker (if sitting facing forward in driver seat), and I'm not sure if it's just the speaker cover is loose, or if it's an actual blown speaker. Any advice? Can the pins for the rear deck lid really get worn, or the clips of the speaker cover get loose easy?

i would adjust the fader to where that is the speaker that is on, and go back and listen at a fairly low volume, a blown speaker has more of a pop, whereas a loose grill would be more a click sound.

You can open the trunk, and LIGHTLY push on the speaker, I'm talking like "soft spot on a newborn baby head" easy, and if you feel a crunching, the voice coil is cooked, and it is bad. But that is real cooked, speakers can be bad without the crunch too.

Why not just take off the rear deck and listen? It's pretty easy IIRC, 4 clips and that plastic trim at the bottom comes off then I think it just lifts off, you might have to pop off the c-pillar covers, held on with just pull clips.

This doesn't seem like a question that belongs in a sound damping thread, probably could/should have been it's own thread.

On a different note, I used "second skin" today for the first time. Seems like nice material. It's like dynamat extreme except the metal is thicker and the black gooey stuff is thinner. I still think I prefer dynamat, but this stuff seems to be a good substitute. Another good substitute is the kno knoise from knukonceptz. I've used it before but it doesn't seem much cheaper than the original dynamat extreme.
