Default Rattles

Hey all, new to the forum here soooooo hi. I seem to join these for every vehicle I have!

In any case, wondering if anyone is aware of some of the common "rattles". I did some searching and couldn't find anything.

But the vehicle has two strange noises. One is a fairly consistent tick/squeak that sounds as if its coming from the rear, maybe wheels? It's one of those noises you can only really hear when someone/something is on to your side and the noise reflects back at you. Doesn't seem side specific, and happens at above 40 mph only usually.

Secondly, either the rear window or sunroof rattles when I hit these "Ohio-sized" bumps we have.

Any thoughts/help appreciate, thanks!

Truck is a 2011 sport. 1100 miles.

Welcome to the forum!

Rattles and squeaks are a tough nut to crack.

The tick squeak could be a dragging e-brake or a bearing issue. Also, sometimes you pick up stuff and it hangs up in the u-joints or around the driveshaft. I'd visually inspect that.

Large bumps and rattles go hand in hand. The next time you head out and see a bump coming, put your hand on the sunroof glass and see if the rattle stops. If so, it's the glass there and it probably needs to be checked to make sure the track isn't coming loose.

Good luck!
