New interior noises

Hi all,
I'm up to a year and 6k on my 2014 and I have some new noises developing that I'm wondering if you all have any remedies...

1. Rear view mirror buzzrattle (just made that up) has gotten pretty bad. I'm thinking about buying the tool to take it off the window and adding something to the mount inside.

2. Seat belt holder / presenter arm clicking right by my ear. I haven't thought of anything for this.

3. Driver's seat is creaky when moved laterally. I'm afraid there could be a broken weld or something inside the seat.

Any easy or definitive fixes? Thanks!

Loud exhaust. Works like a charm.

Unfortunately not. I've got no restrictors in the side pipes, the GT500 ABs and an exhaust leak I'm still trying to sort out. I can still hear this stuff clear as day :-/

My driver window started rattling like crazy the other day. It was happening at high rpm with the window up. Window down and it was completely gone...

On the seat creak, your power seat track might be going bad. It's not uncommon in these cars and you're still under warranty.

Ooh, that's a good heads up. I'm thinking the dealer won't fix a creak under warranty though? Do I need to get it to fail somehow?

If it's not having trouble moving, then the track may not be bad. If it's just creaking, it could be that you have the seat all the way to the bottom and it's rubbing a bit. I'm a tall guy so ran into that problem early too - if that's it, you just need to move it up (not forward, up) a fraction of an inch and you should be ok.

Completely unacceptable solution.


Anyway, have you taken it into the dealer? Bumper-to-bumper should cover excessive rattles... You are still under warranty with 6k miles and being a 2014

No, haven't tried the dealer yet, they're an hour away and I didn't know the bumper to bumper might cover this. I'll try that too. And I know Tom was kidding about the exhaust because he loves his GT500s. My point was I have those plus open side pipes and any louder would be truly obnoxious.

I'm not a light person (300 lb), so this is a good idea for me to try.

Coming from Hondas, I have to admit it's hard to get used to some of these fit and finish issues.

That being said, I didn't want to pay Porsche and BMW prices to go fast, so "we got what we got."

The way I look at it is like it's "some assembly required." That's why I'm here looking for help.

That should NOT be any excuse in the least. Ford's quality ratings have been close to Honda/Toyota for a few years now (issues with MyFordTouch aside) and you've got a 40K+ car. Go to your dealer with all this stuff and let them fix it under warranty.

I certainly don't want to fight about it, I thought I'd do what I could and let my dealer clean up what's left at my next oil change.

By the way, I think raising the seat a hair worked for the creaking.

And just to respond regarding quality... Clearly comparing old Ford to new Ford their quality has increased significantly. But comparing problems like this (non-driveline) to my Hondas and Toyotas, I'm just not convinced. They just didn't seem to happen at all in the first 60k miles or so - so they didn't need the dealer to fix it.

But two of these cars are early 2000s models... Back then it was pretty tough to rival the Japanese manufacturers for sure.

Let the dealer fix it all so they can't accuse you of messing it up.

My 2014 GT has 13,000 miles on it and I've had it almost two years and I don't have any interior noises. My car was built on a Wednesday though so maybe that is why. LOL

Of course my car is a base model car so I don't have power seats or electric to the rear view mirror. I hope you get your issues fixed.

My seatbelt does the same clicking noise as of recent.

My seat belt holder will not stay up,. I removed the seatbelt and found the plastic broken which prevents the seat belt from atayibg in place. This pice cabnot be ordered on its own and a whole new seat belt is required.
