I have an 06 Sonata LX and recently I have noticed some (extremely
annoying) rattling noises coming from the front passenger side area.
It only occurs when I hit bumps, and in New England weather, the frost
heaves are everywhere.
I am not sure if it's the speaker in the passenger door, the actual
passenger seat, or the glove box. My suspicion of the passenger seat
is because the noise becomes quite faint when I have a passenger, and
only more noticable when I hit a bigger bump in the road. My
reasoning for the glove box is because it seems to become louder when
I drive with it open. The speaker is a silly thing to think of, it's
possible, but why after a year did it come loose?
We have a 2006 Sonata with a similar sound. Couldn't figure it out.
Turns out it was a rattling leaf underneath the hood near the wipers!

I don't have anything good to report. I've seen cowl rattles, insufficient
body welding (not structurally), excessive windshield sealing causing the
cowl to rub, and fenders rubbing on the a-pillar. It'll probably take
someone digging in to find the noise.
I say take it the the dealer and let them worry about it. You'll be
making some dealer technician unhappy, but that's part of the job,
sometimes. At least it won't be me this time. I'm not in New England.
you might search this group for similar post, I think others have discussed
something like it.
I had a creak really, not so much a rattle...only in cold weather over
washboard surfaces and at hiway expansion joints. As it disappeared over,
say, 50 degrees, I ignored it.
I did mention it to the dealer when in for routine maintenance. I cleaned
out the car, bins ,and truck just in case they would look for it. When I got
my car back, the mechanic complained I had too much loose stuff in the car
to chase a rattle! I had a small stuffed animal on the dash!....Well, low
and behold, the rattle was gone...they fixed it though no mention of fix is
on the repair order..........I think some suspect windshield/dash panel fit.
I have wind noise on Psgr side and the drivers seat clunks when I start and
stop. Haven't been to dealer with it yet..
I really HATE new cars...always something needs fixing. Not as bad as it
was years ago though!
I can read Wayne's posts fine, although they are formatted rather
strangely. Like a cross between HTML and ASCII. He is using Qusnetsoft
NewsReader 188.8.131.52 as his newsreader. I'll try to do some research and
see if I can figure out what the problem is.
This is a news reader for a device with Pocket PC on it. It seems to me
that it sends messages out through the Outlook client. As such, there are
too many variables for me to figure it out without a device of my own to
experiment with. Wayne, check your Outlook settings and see if anything
seems out of the ordinary.
Thanks Eric. It was working fine all along until these recent
complaints. Now I cannot update the Newsgroups on the Pocket PC.
It does not actually go through Outlook. Quesenetsoft Newsreader
connects to the NNTP server through the USB port via ActiveSync and
can do so witelessly without the laptop being on.
I will have to troubleshoot this over the weekend. This message should
ve readable and is being sent via Agent -- one of the best PC-based
newsreaders on the market. I just wished the authors would make one
for the PPC and then I could get rid of the Russian Qusenetsoft

LOL. I can feel your pain. After years and years of experimentation, I
finally went with Xnews. I agree that Agent is an excellent program,
but when dealing with binaries, I found Xnews to be just a little more
efficient for my needs.
Interesting that it doesn't need Outlook. Although I admit readin
through the broken English was a bit difficult.
