If you can repeat the noise, like driving over a 2 by 4, then it'll help them in locating that particular rattle. It's hard to go in and talk to a service advisor, who writes the information down. Then gives it to a mechanic to figure out what and where the rattle is. The Mechanics are human too just like us, if you can give as much detail information as possible it'll help them. Ask to talk to the Service Manger to see if they can have maybe someone else to look at it. If you're still not satisfied, email Subaru Customer Care Dept.. Hold on to your receipts, the last option would be to check your state lemon law as far as your legal rights.
Unfortunately, I would not be able to use both my hands for trip meter needle A and B.
So, I tried using a transparent tape, which I found little bit difficult to adjust in that small area.
Any better adhesive or a thing which is simple to apply and easy to take it off?
