2018 Macan Turbo
I recall reading on this forum that a member was experiencing the same issue and inserted a bit of felt or “foam” between the door panel and the metal sheeting.
Well, I don't mind to DIY and would normally do this if not CPO. Something like this not being covered under CPO sound like BS to me.I have same rattles at certain frequencies. I was hoping it would be covered the next time I brought my CPO Macan in. I guess not after reading your experience. Search this forum for other threads on similar rattle and what was done behind the panels to correct.
Thank you. You are helpful as usual. How does searching help me with my particular question if there is any recourse with denied CPO fix? I am not asking how to fix. I am asking how to make dealer fix it.There are already five (5) door rattle threads. Two specifically are about the passenger side door, one is related to bass.
Two have to do with the driver's side door, one which describes a fix.
So much for searching before creating a new thread.
Merging those with this one.

I would generally agree that occasional squeak and rattle is fine and may be too much of a hassle to fix under CPO but what I have is a defect which is just poor design. I am not sure if I should push this further by involving a lawyer just on principle but at this point I totally disagree with Porsche's approach not to fix this issue under CPO.I’m sure you can fix yourself. And I can see why they word the CPO warranty that way. My issue is with speaker rattle and dealer will fix only because I am under original warranty.
Great job! Would like to try this as well as I have a rattle in my door. Any instructions around on how to pull off the whole door panel?Just fixed it. Took me literally 15 minutes. 3 bolts 10 cents worth of felt tape. This job is 0 out of 10.
This black rubber panel was rattling. I added some felt tape and rattle is gone. I can't believe Porsche is so cheap not to fix this chit in 15 minutes and 10 cents. This is just ridiculous business running practices and would be much more beneficial for the dealership to spend 15 minutes and 10 cents to fix this under CPO and have a happy customer and now customer thinks they are cheap.
I spent more time negotiating with dealership and Porsche corporate than I did fixing it. And they wanted $500 just to look into this. Would've probably added $1000 on top of that for the felt tape. I hate dealerships dearly and this interaction just reinforces my attitude.
There's a very informative YouTube video out there that the forum won't allow me to link. It's a 4-5 minute video, I think it's actually from a tint installer.Great job! Would like to try this as well as I have a rattle in my door. Any instructions around on how to pull off the whole door panel?
