No improvement as I push down on the dash. So the heat shield would only rattle while accelerating?
The rattling noise appears when you start speeding up from 0 to maybe 30 or 40 mph and then disappear after car speed surpasses 40 mph. It would be hard to believe that the heat shields might be rattling on a new car, but anything is possible.

Senior Member. Hello, I have a 2005 Subaru Legacy with approx. The culprit of rattling sound when accelerating mainly derives from car engine. When the car idles it purrs no unusual noise. He made the adjustments screwed them so the rubber bumpers protrude farther and rattle is gone!
Just last week, called 800 Subaru Customer Care phone number. Does anyone know what they are there for, I assume that they are just heat shields.
Refbacks are On. So far I am very satisfied.
Unless you make a habit of parking on dry grass or other flammable materials, just break it the rest of the way off and drive on. Your car can vibrate, shake, and create various types of noises for different reasons. It goes away for awhile and then comes back.
