They have moved beyond black. They now have a method of bending light beams which makes the helicopters virtually invisible.

Not to take away from this solution in any way, because I would not have thought of this without it. But, for those of you who do not have time to take out the rear deck, etc. (like me right now). I found another solution that may work permanently, or at least in the interim until you can work on your car.

Open the trunk and look at the underneath side of the deck. I took a foam ear plug and squashed it down and fit it into the hole that is directly below the transmitter unit (see the pic). Actually, I wedged 1 1/2 plugs in there and it has since stopped the buzz. Also, to check even if you have this buzz, I was able to tap on the area of the hole prior to placing the plug in it and get the transmitter to buzz.

As I did this today, I'm not sure if it will be a long-term fix, but should hold me over until I have to readdress it.

This looks to be a great quick fix. I also pondered if someone could attempt to tighten the bolt from the bottom without messing up the threads.

If you hear any more rattle, try shoving a plug in the hole next to the bolt. I found that the little piece of metal sticking through the deck was a major part of the rattle in my car.

I don't think the tightness of that bolt is the issue. All of the weight, or what weight there is is off to the side from where it is bolted down. So, I think the opposite side from the bolt may be what is buzzing. The plate that it sits on would have to be fairly rigid to keep any sort of flex from occurring.

I also thought of attempting to tighten the bolt from the bottom, but I don't see how without messing up the threads of the bolt. I also thought about putting foam in the "clip" or "flange" behind the bolt, but it's a pretty tight space. It looks much larger in the picture...

I assume these things simply from the pics because I have obviously not seen or held the piece in person. So, I may be completely off base.

It doesn't weigh a thing--the vibrating is the metal bracket that holds the transmitter to the car. On my car, a few turns of the bolt fixed the rattle. However, I didn't want to ever have to pull the deck out again so I put that small barrier to insulate the two pieces of metal from each other.

If two pieces of metal aren't completely tight to one another, you're gonna have a bad (noisy) time.

There was a horrible rattle that sounded like a screw or something loose rolling around coming from the back of the car. Dealership didn't put any effort into finding it so I had to find it myself. I figured out that if hit my palm against the bottom of the deck on the driver's side I could replicate the sound I was hearing when driving. After removing the rear deck, I discovered that the wireless transmitter was too loose.

Solution:
1. Take the rear deck out. There are multiple ways to do this--I pulled the plastic pins out that you see when you put the rear seats down and then was able to pull up on the deck after locating the 4 plastic grommets. This is much easier than totally disassembling the rear pillars, etc. Do this at your own risk--you can easily bend or crease the deck if you get in a hurry.
2. Locate the wireless transmitter and find an appropriate sized socket.
3. You can tighten the bolt and see if that fixes your rattle. However, I wanted to make sure I never had to get back there again so I cut a small rubber placemat the size of the transmitter (and a hole for the bolt) and placed it under the transmitter.
4. Tighten the bolt and be rattle free. I've not heard the noise for over two weeks.
5. When you reinstall the rear deck, make sure you push down on it so that there is sufficient clearance between the brake light and the window or else you will hear rattle!





'

Ok, something is obviously different on your car, because even when I pull out the 4 plastic pins, and even get the plastic trim piece(2 piece) loose, the interior trim is still solid. I don't know if it's the brake light or what bit it isn't budging. I think I even got one portion of it slightly bent outward since it is bulging where one of the plastic push pin things is sticking in.

Technically, I believe it is a receiver (for the key fob, based on other comments here) not a transmiter, but most likely the Canadians have it as well.

two nuts tightened against eachother will do the trick if tightening the bolt is the fix or even adding a lockwasher and a bolt- Instead of foam plugs to keep the tab end from rattling, I'd look at a tiny drop of fireplace or windsheild caulk, it would resist heat under the window, and still secure it permanent, yet be cut/grind/dremelable should that part ever need to be replaced

You mean like this one that automatically tags pictures with your license plate, average speed, drivers license and credit card number?

Nah that would never happen... takes the sport out of chasing you down at 100mph and stopping you in the fast lane on an icy road to collect tax on an arbitrarily selected rate of speed ...you know ...safety

I didn't do anything, and the rear deck pop went away... It was super annoying, now its so quiet and it makes me happy. Only thing thats changed is i've been doing some aggressive cornering and getting the back end loose... also installed strut tower bars a couple weeks ago (but it was doing it still after i put em in). It really seems to have quieted down since i started tossing it around.
