Killer Vibration in the SI

How do u stop the vibrations coming from all over the car? ie. Sunroof, trunk, speaker cover in the back, third light. Damn that **** is annoying.

i know what you mean. i think all you can do is learn to live with most of it. i get sounds coming from everywhere too. the only thing that i got fixed was the sound coming from the sunroof. i took it to the dealer and they added some foam to stop it from squeaking.

You can stop at least some of it with sound deadening material such as Dynamat. Depending on how much of your car you use it on, it can get expensive though.

Oh man - I can not STAND rattles...

...if you were to pull my car apart you would fine paper everywhere, business cards, sock, rubber washers, rubber stoppers, you name it. I have had my car since day one ('94) and am still hunting squeeks and rattles down on a daily basis.

Back when I had my system in my first 92 Si hatchie my best friend was double sided tape from CDN TIRE.. You know the kind that is foamy in the middle but has adhesive contact surfaces on the two sides.

Stick that sucker behind your rear plate and in all your rear trunk contact points and it should help reduce some of it. Its a hell of a lot cheaper than other alternatives too.

As for the vibration and rattling.. There is not a whole lot you can do aside from Dynomating the entire rear section of your car because the metal material your car is made from it built to have a small degree of flex to it and the pressure waves from some of the systems are bound to cause this to flex back and forth on a continous basis, hence causing noise.
