D/S B-Pillar slight rattle noise ......

I have a '02 F-250 CC.

At freeway speeds, you can hear this slight rattle/tapping right at ear level. I keep looking over my shoulder for a mouse ....

I feel this may be a common issue as I owned a '00 Excursion that had that SAME EXACT NOISE.

Anyone have the same issue, or a solution ??

Thanks

I have a similar issue. To me it souds like the rear seat belt is banging around, but i have eliminated that idea. At least heraing that someone else has a similar makes me realize I am not hearing things. Would enjoy if someone has any idea what the noise could be. Thanks

I have this sounds as well but figured it was the new side steps I put on last fall. But YES, it does sound like it's coming from the right rear seat belt. I do know that my right rear speaker can't handle anything bass-y or it will resonate and buzz. Maybe a loose mount in there?

I had that problem and found that the plastic vertical lip seal between the two doors was detached at one end and would vibrate at highway speeds. I glued the strip back on and all is well. I hope yours is a simple fix like mine. good luck. Oh, and please let us know if that was your problem or if you found something else so we can pass it on.

Thanks guys for clearing up the fact I AM NOT HEARING THINGS, and not the only one

I will look into the seal, and if I have to, pull some panels off.

I haven't been driving it a lot, but plan on a lot of camping this year with it, so it will need to be addressed soon.

No panels need to be pulled. Mine was located on the upper half of the rear door, on the leading edge. While cruising down the highway it would vibrate and drive me nuts. I only had to put a dab of glue on it and it was fixed. Black plastic piece, when rear door is open it is like a flap on the leading edge. Unless your noise is something else.

Subbed ,
Have the rattle on the passenger side pillar between the doors. Does it more on slight bumpy areas of road. Drives me absolutely crazy and its so far over there i cant pinpoint it. Have had riders try and listen to where exactly it comes from and they claim inside the pillar cover. I look in there and cant find anything so far. I thought maybe it was the interior door panels flexing and the edges rubbing on the paint but it doesn't seem to be so will watch and see what others come up with. All my weatherstrip looks good and is secure.
While we are at it , has anyone come up with an idea for stopping seat belt slap when the windows are down and seatbelts not being used ? I know i can reach over and pull it over the headrest , but it sure is annoying. Thought about unbolting it and putting a couple of twist in it...
