This is my first post and after reading the forum and checking many of the how to's etc i have come to the end of my tether.

I have a rattle come squeak from somewhere on the front left of the car, not sure exactly where as i cant seem to locate it :s it should be noted that this only occurs at above 30 mph, and does occur even on smooth roads. This to me implies its something catching in the wind?!?

I have tired to windscreen cowl fix but this doesn't appear to have worked.

Therefore i wondered if anybody could offer any advice as to the problem or what the noise could possibly be and if possible a fix?

This will be my last effort before a phone call to Honda!! (Btw i would take it to Honda if it wasn't such a pain lol)

Hope someone can help

Cheers

Ben

Try moving the black plastic 'triangle' just forward of the nearside door mirror but on the front wing. (try with door open, easier to wiggle)

If one of the brackets has worked loose or broken it can produce a rattle in the wind.

Well after removing the two triangular panels and taking the car for a spin, i can safely say is isn't that that's causing the problem as the bleedin rattle is still there!!

The more i hear the rattle the more i think it may be caused by loose wiring somewhere, possibly as jpjossen said, somewhere behind the speaker. Will have to do something investigation before i take it to the stealers.

hmmm, thanks for the update. I took mine to the dealers - no fixes this time.
However, they did notice the boot fitting (behind the spoiler on the inside) was loose and replaced the internal clips.
I've now noticed the noise isnt actually speed dependent, but actually occurs once the car is hot (quite hot, e.g. driven for 1 hour plus) - suggesting it's something near the bonnet.
Everyone seems to think its the cowl attached to the windscreen (see those forums) but I cant see how it is in my case...
these cars rattle - a bit sad.
will update as I find out more - will be looking with a mate again tomorrow

Have you tried it with someone in the passenger seat? Sounds really daft but i get a rattly/squeeky noise when the seat next to me is vacant!

yep tried that - its not my seat... now its the turn of the silicon spray.... having had my mates in the car to isolate the noise... they do think its coming from the dash / front window area - which, to be honest, you cant tell from the driver side.

think im going to join the party, the front of my car squeaks when im going over 40-50. it seems like its coming from the middle of the windscreen, where that grill is. (did someone post a fix for this? I remember seeing it somewhere)

As its speed related im guessing its something to do with the wind going through somewhere. I've tried that cowl fix with some trim tape, didnt quite work, its still there. Not sure what to do now. Motorway driving can be hell without music
