My car has an annoying little buzzing rattle. It’s on the passenger side so I can’t thump things and fiddle about trying to stop it while I’m driving. Of course, at traffic lights it stops so I can’t find it then either, and it stops when I go around a corner or a curve in the road.
It’s not the glove box cover or something inside the glove box. It’s not the trim along the dashboard although when my husband was a passenger he gave it an almighty thump and the noise stopped ( see February post about my husband’s solution to things that need fixing). Perhaps he temporarily frightened whatever it was because it was quiet for quite a long time after that attack.
It seems to come from the door or at least way across that side but it isn’t the blue collapsible umbrella in the side pocket on the door. Maybe it’s the air vent or the speaker for the radio.
Last summer I decided it was something in the seat because if I pulled on the side of the bit you sit on it stopped, so I shoved a glove down between the seat and the frame. Just the finger tips poked out and it looked as though someone was trapped under the seat trying to get out. When winter came I spent ages looking for the missing glove until I spied the little trapped person and remembered where it was.
This summer it seems worse but I haven’t remembered to shove the glove back into place until after I start on my way and then it’s too late.
I love Red Rover—my red VW Golf—but his rattle is very annoying. I think I need to get my husband back on board and drive about until we track this little pest down.
Sweet contemporary romance from Escape and Montlake
