Does the noise you described go up and down with the rise and fall in engine speed? Thank you.


I wonder if the car could need a 4 wheel alignment carried out??, also has there been any work undertaken on the drivers side door, this could be a cause of the rattles and clunk sounds perhaps
A few years ago the door was damaged and was replaced with a used door. Thank you.

I wonder if the garage, I assume it was a garage that carried out the replacement, omitted the internal door foam, or damaged it in some way?


Just a thought of course Andrew, I may well be way off the mark, but it might be worth having a peek at what is going on behind the door card.

Morning Andrew, hoping you and the family are keeping well.

I know the story behind the drivers door replacement on your car, and the probably the cause of the rattles

Your door was sourced for the painter via a very kind and generous offer of a ZT door from Gary and Lydia in York.

Knowing the varying standards of the painter's workmanship which were in the main erring on the low side putting it politely, I'd say when he was transferring the lock door handles and trim from your original door, there would have been less care taken than repainting Edgar's coach line.

Once the restrictions are relaxed, you might wish to pop over and I'll take a look for you, I wouldn't be surprised if the door liner hasn't been damaged or even not refitted at the least.

It's very quiet now in the cabin with the V6 running, the scuttle isn't yet fitted and I've not put the pads under the bonnet as yet, I'm putting some pads on the underside of the bonnet and a double felt pad like the 75 has. It's overkill but who cares? I have a very quiet ZT and It will make people think when they don't hear it!
How did you do the whole bulkhead ?

Pete.

Dashboard and heater out to do the job, I wanted to find all the water leaks so it was just an idea I've had for awhile. The cabin is now very quiet but I'm not finished yet as I'm doing some more in other places.
