Armrest Cover Rattling??

The button that extends my arm rest up rattles. Any fix for that ?


I just fixed this.


Upon closer inspection, I slid a very small slice of sound dampening material and wedged it between the top of the armrest and the button itself. I used Dynamat Extreme which is naturally sticky. I also inserted it from the outside (as you would as if you were going to push the button.


I needed to use my knife to push it in, but I found the button mechanism still worked and it quieted down the rattle. Since it's entirely inserted, it isn't visible either and not an eyesore.


I had already placed a few more slices of Dynamat on the underside of the arm rest, but it was this darn button that was the culprit!

I've been tempted to use Locktite since they seem to loosen every 6 months.


I'm definitely using Loctite on those suckers. All 4 fell out of the compartment on my wife's 08 Impreza, and 2 have fallen out of my LGT.
