BUZZ/RATTLE FROM DOOR PANEL WHEN OPERATING AUDIO SYSTEM - VEHICLES BUILT BEFORE 8/2/2007
Publication Date: August 17, 2007
Some 2005-2008 Mustang vehicles built before 8/2/2007 may experience a buzz/rattle from the door panels when using the radio/CD player at elevated volumes or bass levels or voice broadcasts. This may be due to the window switch bezel vibrating against the door trim panel. This can often be incorrectly diagnosed as an audio speaker buzz or a bad speaker.
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition by applying foam tape to the window switch bezel.
Remove window switch bezel from door panel and separate the two piece bezel.
Install three (3) pieces of PVC soft foam tape 3/8" wide by 1 3/4" long (10 mm by 45 mm) part number 164-R4901 from the Rotunda Squeak and Rattle Repair Kit part number 164-R4900. (Figures 1 and 2)
