    im not sure if anyone else has this problem. but the plastic pieces inside my rear fenders above my tires are rattling like they are trying to play me a song.

    it sounds horrible

    does anyone have a solution to this issue or should i take it in?

    Haven't heard of this one. Are you missing any clips.
    The only thing I can think to fix it is some super glue or the soft side of velcro.

    hmm. i didnt take out any clips except the mudflap clips. but the rattle is coming from directly above my tire. in the "wheel well" actually.

    I also noticed a rattle in my rear passenger wheel well last week. It looks like the plastic tabs holding the wheel well liner are loose. I wonder if they pulled them during my rear leaf tsb and just reused the old ones.

    Mine does it too. Noticed it when I shut the doors. Let me know what you find for the fix.

    My truck did this also and it was annoying.. I looked under there and saw that there are 2 clips that hold up that black plastic inside the wheel well. I just pushed them in and it seems like they stayed.... I would hit the fender and the rattle went away. I'm sure the off roading is what made it come a little loose. And i know the rattle will likely come back so a permanent solution needs to be thought up.

    Just try pushing the clips all the way in for a temporary fix

    how deep is the wheel well to the bed?

    its coming all from that plastic lining under there....

    what would they say if i took in my truck and they saw the mudflaps off?
