i got one in the driver door, passenger door and one in the dash. The one in the dash comes and goes, the ones in the doors i hear all the time, especially when my exhaust drones. The ones in the door are where the lever is to open, but I think its more specifically coming from where the lock and unlock button is. If I decide to detail my interior in march i'll see if i can tighten them or figure something out. The dash rattle i'll take of some other time

if you look at the door handle... the little plastic thing behind is a covers for a bolt thats actually on really loose and has lots of play... its a clip on, not much you can do about it, I bet thats what making the ratling sound.

What conditions do you experience when you hear it? Is it always there? Is it relative to engine rpm? Is it relative to the engine temperature?

When it's cold here, and it's at 0 right now, I get a persistent rattle above 2,500 rpms until the car warms up. When I get to getting under the car I'll try and find it, but it's not bothering me enough right now.

It might be the parking brake handle. The MGW short throw shifter instructions had a cure for that by dyno matting the holes on the side and front of the metal arm... it only took a second to do it so I did even tho I had no issue..it only takes two screws from the back of the console,remove it, and pull apart the two plastic halves of the handle cover... the openings are easy to see... cover them with something... duct tape a few layers thick would probably do it...you can tell if thats the problem by pulling on the handle till the cable gets taught... if it stops then this is your problem

I found .78 cents (2 quarters, 2 dimes, 1 nickle and 3 pennies) under the shifter cover when I installed my MGW. Bought the car new and can't for the life of me figure out how it got there. Removing that helped the rattle in that area and a trip to the dealer stopped the dash rattle. LOL
