Mine develope a rattle and it would come and go, but only when the top was up., friday my son and I were going to the Tail of the dragon, and I hit a bump and I heard the rattle. We started looking for it and discovered the plastic panel that surrounds the latch handle was loose on the passenger side near the window. I tried to snap it back but it didn't help. I have an appointment at my local dealer at 2 to look at it. I will keep you informed.


Update: the clip that holds in the panel was broken off, they are ordering a new panel to replace it...

This time they re-tourqued the rear seat belt retractor. That seems to have fixed it.

I think that's my issue, was tapping the exhaust at mid point and its like metal tinging inside the exhaust but its probably somewhere along the exhaust. I'm gonna call the dealer, I emagine it's a warranty thing, car is a 2011 with 2900 km

Well figured out the rattle/tingy noise, just read this thread http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=134218
This is the noise on the driver side spring. According to the dealer and some posts I've read there is recall or fixable solution. I was thinking of adding something in between the spring to get rid of the noise. These springs are part of the AFM (active fuel management). So when car does not need all 8 cylinders these springs engage and when they're not engaged you hear the tingy noise.
Does anybody have a better idea to stop the noise? Can they be removed or does it effect something? I'd rather not remove as my car is a 2011 pace car vert and want to keep it stock, I hardly drive it as it only has 2900km in 2 years, but that noise is annoying.
