Blue tack would work, but a new car shouldn’t need it, let the dealer sort!

I'll beat with my fist. Usually it helps. I have already "repaired" one rattling by this method.

By the way, I think that if something can not be repaired with blue tack, duct tape or a cable tie, so it is poorly designed. :)

I had a lot of rattling sounds not only from speakers. Went to the dealer in April. Took one and a half day to "fix" them. They told me there is nothing more they can do if sounds comes back. Next morning it was less (only from the speaker covers) but it was there again. Now that weather is hot, seems that it's gone. Not sure about next winter. Poor quality.

[/quote]A packer, or packing piece is usually a small piece of rubber or foam put between things to stop movement / rattle. Not:
What's a packer you ask? A "packer" is the term used for any object used to create a bulge in a person's pants.
