After 2 years of trying to find the source of an annoying metallic rattle in our 2015 Nuevo we recently had the good fortune to be able to drive down a long private road. Whilst I drove very carefully the OH went to the back of the van  to listen to all the possible sources of this rattle and success. It was the six handle release buttons on the kitchen cupboards. We now tie them together in twos with rubber bands - the ones thrown away by our local postman are ideal - and no more rattles!!!

THANK YOU!
It is so refreshing to see a posted solution rather than a problem - and to a problem that most of us probably have.
THANK YOU

tap_fingers  This is reminds me of a job I must do as soon as the weather warms up. The heat shield under the gas locker for our Rienza is rattling again. It is a perforated aluminium plate between the exhaust and the floor of the van. I ran out of large headed rivets last time and only repaired three of the corner mountings. I thought it was the exhaust rattling last time. This is why we read the Forum, thanks for the reminder. up!

That was our major major rattle. We keep a couple of rolls of the shelf liner material to wrap things in. The pan cupboard on a Rienza is right behind the passenger seat. The rest of the rattles are too far back to hear. As I mentioned in another thread I cured the suspect gas locker rattle. rolleyes

Another one is where the metal gas pipe enters the oven or grill through a hole in the metal casing.

We spent nearly 2 years trying to discover the source of an irritating loud banging noise: not the shower doors, not the chassis or wheels, not the door bin, not the fridge vent filters, not the oven, not the stored table....

It turned out to be the bunch of bike lock keys, hanging in the locker over the microwave and slapping against the wooden sides over every bump or swerve.

All is peace and quiet now.

We had an irritating "bump-bump" from the back of our Duetto. It turned out to be that the overcab locker was not closed properly and "bump-bumped". Took ages to make the connection as the sound was so obviously from the back!

I think it was Gromit, in another incarnation, who introduced the very useful Unexplained Noise Detector Device. This is a long cardboard tube ( eg from a used roll of kitchen foil  ) When you are on the move the passenger places the end of the tube against their ( functioning ) ear and then sweeps the other end round where they think the noise is coming from. The tube focuses the sound so making it much easier to pin-point the source of the noise.  We have found this very useful.

( Here should follow a long list of H&S caveats but, readers all being adults, I shall leave these to your imagination)

I seem to recall mentioning this a few years ago. We had a metallic tinkle (no sniggers, please) coming from somewhere on the Clubman, sometimes when going over a bump or when leaning enthusiastically into a corner.. Simply couldn't locate. Took it for MOT, and source of noise was found. The top circle of one of the rear coil springs had snapped off, and dropped down within the spring. It would sometimes rattle, trapped within the spring.

tap_fingers The matter of pot holes is no different in other areas I am sure but the tyre and exhaust people that sorted mine said they are making a killing out of broken exhausts and damaged tyres. Whilst I was there another motorist needed three new tyres fitting to his nearly new Skoda. On inspection he had three broken springs shrugg .  
Managements work friend has had her car off the road for a fortnight, n/s front suspension re-build. The puddle she couldnt avoid was a crater full of water. You have a bit of lee way with a car but it is not easy avoiding pot holes in a motorhome without crossing the white line.
As I said a rear lounge coach build is no were as bad as our Duetto or my work van full of spanners.

Yes, we used the tea towel trick, plus oven glove under the grillpan itself. Much quieter now! OH does worry about igniting the gril with them still in there, but that seems pretty unlikley, since we would open the grill door beforelighting anyway. smile!
