    Hello all. I have a 2011 dc that has developed a rattle in the front end over bumps. Seems to go away when I hit the brakes. I checked the clips on the calibers and they seem to be installed correctly. I am going to bring it back to the dealer, only had it for about a month, but I usually like to diagnose the problem before I go there so there is no bs with the service guys saying they don't hear it or can't find it. Any ideas?

    I had a front end rattle that happened every so often and after poking around a bit, I discovered it was the tire balancing weight. I jammed some thin foam behind it and the rattle was gone. It's something easy to check and don't forget to look on both sides of the tires.
