Gonna have to find out where its loose mate and do something about it...some of the body kit clips may have broken or come loose with age and may wanna replace etc or fill gaps etc....

Need to locate where exactly its rattling.

haha, i used all the silicon on my sub box. lol. i also had my car serviced today, i knew it had a major problem with the breaks, so that was $500 or so to get new discs, they charged me $18 for a fkn new light globe, but all i asked them to do was to look at my transmission bcoz it slips changing gears between 1st to 2nd and sometimes 3rd to 4th. they said they couldnt find anything wrong with it o.O

you could try folding carboard and wedging it between the bar and the inner reo , and firstly find were the rattle is and then wedge it in near it , possible comming near the number plate light - thats were mine was rattling from .

The best way is to remove the bumper, seperate the plastic from the metal parts and use a foam seal tape that you can get from the hardware stores and put it between every piece, reassemble and try it out again and see if it still rattles.
Rattles only occur if something is loose.....
