The rear deck panel on my corolla has been rattling pretty badly recently. It happens every time I hit a bump on the road, no matter how small. I like my bass pretty heavy and since the rattling is from rear dash panel right in front of the sub, my friends think it's a by-product of me having the stereo on too loud--maybe all the sound vibrations weakened the plastic or something.

If I took off the panel and dynamatted it, do you think that would help the rattle go away? Or should I take it to the dealership and have it looked at? (and btw, this would be considered "normal wear and tear" in the Warranty exemptions, right?)

Rear deck rattles are common, if you are under warranty, I would take it do the dealer. I stuck some foam padding in all available gaps and the rattles went away.

Yeah, I've got 1 and a half years left on the basic warranty. I never knew rattles were covered. My 15k oil change is coming up soon, so if it's covered by warranty, I'll have the dealership take a look while I'm there.
