l have experiencing a ticking noise from the passenger side window area for about six weeks now...It certainly is temperature driven...As the weather has become colder, the ticking noise is more apparent...........l brought it in the dealership, and that solved nothing...They found some noise in the passenger A pillar and repaired that....l tried moving the passenger side seatbelt adjuster, up and down, and it seemed to work but the noise has returned, since the cold weather has returned..........What are other areas that l should consider....maybe the sound is resonating from the rear and l'm hearing it from the passenger area ????? Thanks..............

Could be your speaker in your passenger A pillar, some metal that is flexing as it warms up, anything.

Does it only happen when you're in motion? If not, try this - use a small piece of hose or tubing as a stethoscope and put one end to your ear, and use the other end to scan the vehicle where you think the sound is coming from. Check other places too, like under the hood.

When you localize it, tell the dealer where it is and see if you can recreate the conditions (since you said it's temperature driven). Good luck!

Thought they had corrected this some time ago?? By the way, found my rattle, it was the stuff in the spare tire compartment. Particularly the hardware for the spare installation.

I also have a ticking noise inside my car when it moves on uneven terrain, turns out it is the back of the back seat rubbing/moving against it's stop - a white rubber pad. I verified it by driving with the seat back folded and no more noise!. I'm going to try spraying the area with silicone lubricant to see if it goes away.

Left side - Drivers - The larger one. But then again, easy to check by folding each down one at a time just before your next trip to wall mart (bergdorf goodman?).
