Annoying Noise From Mk7

10 posts in this topic

Hi,

I've had my fiesta nearly 3 weeks, covered nearly 900 miles, and have noticed a strange noise that sounds like it's coming from the front passenger door panel. When I turn sharply around a corner, left or right, it sounds like I have a stone/loose nut rolling up and down the door panel. It doesn't seem to make this noice when going up or down a hill though, so unsure if it is what it sounds like! (I've made sure there is nothing rolling around in the glove compartment).

Anyone else experienced this noise? Thinking of taking it to the dealer it is that annoying, and can be heard even with the stereo on!

Many thanks,

Debbie

Do you have alloys or trims?

Hi, I have the standard alloys on it.

Well that's my theory out the window then, I was going to say it could be a trapped stone in the wheel trim, this will not be the case with alloys though.

hi pixie

cut some cloth and fold it so it will fit into your drainage holes on the bottom of your passenger door to act as little chambers and go for a ride if the noise stops something could be then trapped between the cloths, i did this and when i took it to dealers they found a piece of metal they said was from the door as it was formed from build hope this is of any use

Hi, I have the standard alloys on it.

Do you store the alloy's special nut-key in the passenger-side door-pocket?

Hi,

No, I've made sure there's nothing in the door pocket. I'm going to take it into the dealer as my USB has also frozen over the weekend :(

An update! My annoying noise came from a nut rolling around underneath the carpet of the front passenger seat! One seat out and a drive round and round a car park and it was fixed! :)
