I have a rattle in front left side of my volvo C70, Just happens

Customer Question

I have a rattle in front left side of my volvo C70, Just happens on bumpy roads or going over ramps, had it to main dealers and they could not detect anything, took it to another garage and they replaced practically all parts in the suspension but with no success, they have examined it thoroughly and have not solved the problem. Reading the internet I believe this is relatively common with C70s, should we at this stage start concentrating on roof. Any suggestions?

Is noise from inside car or under the hood ? Noise only over bumps ?

The noise can be heard inside car on bumpy roads, seems to be coming from left front suspension, but all parts have been replaced, wondering now if it is from where dashboard is attached to the car body.

You have to make sure is not from control arm noise or stabilizer link or spring seats those very common area of problem dash can make noise but that is rare

Also all subframe cross members must be tested inspected

as i told you all the parts of the suspension have been replaced, my main dealer has given up as it involves to many man hours but my local garage who has replaced the parts thinks it in inside in the dashboard, How do you start investigating this. can the dashboard be disassembled easily, how is it attached to the frame of the car.

You can disconnect battery take plus and minus cables off the battery . Than take plus and minus cable ends and tape them together so they touch each other for 30 min this process will make hard reset to car computers and can bring car system modules online and normal function . If you can take second of your time please can you rate answer positive excellent or neutral just press one of those ratting buttons and that is all . My boss looks for your feedback ratting from you to me to be good. If you can do that please for me and you can still talk to me after ratting we stay locked .A rating is required please .
