My 2004 9-3 just started developing some disappointing rattles. The front passenger seat rattles when it is not occupied, even on fairly smooth roads. The sun screen below the moonroof rattles when it is fully retracted and the moonroof is closed. The part on the B pillar where you can adjust the placement of the driver seat belt seems like it's rattling too. Then there's an unidentified rattle coming from somewhere on the driver's side door, maybe from the speaker. These things are annoying, especially since the car is still pretty new. Are these things that the dealer will take care of? Not being able to reproduce problems at the dealer is one of the most annoying aspects of car ownership; will they know where to make adjustments if I can describe the sounds even though I might not be able to reproduce them?
