Ok the rattling air vents that's not your vents that's actually the vertical directional that's behind your vent...

Not sure exactly. Sounds like it comes more from the back. It just sounds kind of like a bird chirping when i hit bumps and rough spots, And no way to fix the vents?

Take the vents off to release the birds trapped back there. Apparently they're just trying to get your attention. Seems easy enough to me.

Haha, but seriously, have you tried spraying wd-40 on the vent pieces? (take it off first and let it dry though completely)
Or if you have a hairdryer or something similar to dry it, that would be better.

Ball joints squeak. Bushings squeak. Metal on metal squeaks. Who knows. Could be a lot of things. You need to trace the sound to get an accurate idea

Re: My car squeaks! ?? And vents rattle!

Yah the squeaking/chirping can be caused my one or more of several things in your rear suspension. I had a similar squeak...turns out it was my right rear shock. I replaced mine when I did my suspension and there isn't a squeak anymore.

Unfortunately our mustangs have the misfortune of rattling and squeaking after some time. Sometimes just popping out the center vent stack will help as the car flexes and twists over time puts unequal pressure on components inside the cabin. Try that and see if it continues. Sometimes some Meguiars interior spray will lubricate it just enough to stop the rattling for a while.

Simple solution to the Air vents don't use it LOL. They must have fixed the S197 cause I have no rattles and squeaks. Actually, I have plenty they drive me nuts some days.

The air being on has no effect on the rattle. They will rattle with no air too.
