    Hey everyone,

    I'm hearing a flapping/rattling behind my left shoulder in the drivers seat. It sounds like it's inside the car behind the seatbelt area under the window maybe. Not at slow speeds but faster speeds. Has anyone heard anything similar?

    Thanks!!!

    I hear it too on the same side, I'm starting to think if it's the rear wheel well cover.
    Not sure but it drives me crazy some times

    There was a thread from at least a year ago mentioning some forum members were saying the same thing. Turned out it was the rear inside plastic wheel liner. A couple of pieces of double sided adhesive seemed to fix it.;)

    Had same issue. Really bad at 140 and above. Sounded like the entire wheel well liner was going to come apart. Srt mechanic and I decided to trim a same piece of the bottom liner on each side. Problem solved. Not catching air any longer. Quiet 150 plus.

    Should have said a small piece. Rear wheel liners. Very back lower bottom tab. It seemed to catch the wind and maybe the tire. I'll try and take a photo and post.
