2012 GT coupe - rattle behind driver's seat - need confirmation

I have a 2012 GT coupe. There is a distinct rattle seemingly inside the panel under the small window in back behind the driver's seat. I have one month left on the bumper to bumper warranty. Took the car to the dealer, and (of course) they couldn't hear it. But, it's there for sure. It's like a tapping sound as if a small piece is tapping a larger one inside the panel. Has anyone experienced a rattle like this? I would really appreciate any confirmation on this. Thanks in advance.

Sounds lower, but possibly.

The lowest part of the mechanism is almost floor level, as I recall.

Quite possible then. I will talk to the dealer about that. Thanks for mentioning it.

By your description I have the same rattle you have. I found the linkbelow to a good write up on where that rattle might be coming from. In mycase I can lay in the trunk and tap the underside of the read deck and therattle can be heard but anything I press around the area does not stop therattle that is why I think it is what is described in the below link. Ihave not had time to take the rear interior apart yet to confirm/fix.

WOW! That is some crazy canola there, and a PITA to solve! Very informative article, thanks for posting. I'm hoping our 2011 coupe don't come down with the tick fever! If it does, I'll likely know how to deal with it.

Black means black. If there is any chrome involved, it's not black anymore. Just sayin'
