my OCD has no limits.. (rattling noise)

So, about 1 week into owning a 14 reg Focus, a weird rattling noise around the driver's side dashboard was driving me crazy.

I carefully checked every piece of plastic I could think of, before "determining" it was coming from inside the right hand side vent. I even bought silicone spray and carefully applied it following some advice online.

Well, the rattle got worse. And then.. magically I found the origin. A f**** water bottle I had in the door bin. A BOTTLE OF WATER. And it drove me insane for almost a week.

 

I have no cure.. :)

Back when I had a Fiesta I got annoyed with a plastic bag being crunched kind of noise, got so annoyed by it I had most of the interior in pieces never found out what it was, then one day while cleaning out my glove box behold a packet of crisps behind the glove box compartment not even opened and dated with a best before September 10 this was only last year around April lol

Not long after I got the Focus, I was driving down the (then) girlfriends when the car started with a really loud metallic rattle.

 

Pulled over, revved the engine, killed the engine, restarted it - no noise.

 

Started driving off and after a few minutes, it started again! I grabbed my metal travel mug and took a slurp of coffee.  I realised that the noise stopped...you can see where this is going...put the mug back - rattle...take it out - no rattle!!  I felt equally relieved and stupid.  Pulled over again and wrapped some zinc oxide tape around the mug where it sat in the cup holder.  It's still there now almost 3 and half years later :biggrin:

(To be fair, I haven't used that mug for a long while - I now have a Contigo mug - awesome bit of kit!!)
