Silverado is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
Besides the continuous rattling of doors on this model or creaking centre pillar panels - has anyone out there got any fix suggestions? I have been browzing this site for a while and can't find any yet have seen it mentioned quite a bit.

Also - another rattle like a pencil, nut/bolt trapped somewhere on the drivers side but only audible when turning corner or stopping suddenly. Have checked door panels but nothing there. Any further suggestions?

Model is '97 520i (E39)

as for the bolt or nut being trapped - that kind of sound comes from inside or behind the instrument cluster a lot of times, i test drove an e39 with a similar sound then when i bought my e34, it had it too.

just something to check.
