Hey guys,

I have a 97 EL XR6 and both front quarter panel seem to be vibrating a little.
Has anyone experienced this? If so, Is there anything I can do to fix it, or does it need to be done by a Panel Beater?

Just a little more info:
If i try and shake it, there is no movement.
However, if I tap it with my hand, even lightly, there is a rattle. :?

Cheers
Pete

I haven't really checked.... yes I know a little silly.

But I just wanted to know if this is a common thing?

I've never heard of a front guard coming loose.

I noticed when machine polishing the car that one of my front guards made a lot of noise.
Haven't looked in to it though.

Even better, remove the front gaurds, clean out the leaves and crap built up behind them in the bottom corner and refit.Saves the car rusting out in years to come

Hmmm, I like you thinking.

So, it appears that this is a common/normalish thing that happens over a period of time.
Am I Correct?
