Audible Aerodynamic Noise Rattling on Edge Titanium 2017

noise rattle

Best Answer filippo.ciferri , 25 April 2017 - 03:48 PM

Hi to all....problem solved !!!....I use some rubber seal to eliminate the gap between the plastic locker and the undercover....just to improve a lit bit the internal acoustic comfort I use some wrapper like this around the metal seatbelts since when they are not used and touch the plastic they makes some other clicks...then I put some 3M Velcro in the rear van because the top cover bumps. I use the velcro even to lock the plastic section that contains the emergency tools.

 

Now looks much better.

 

Thanks to all

Hi to all,

 

I live in Italy, I received my new 2017 Edge Titanium 2.0 TwinTurbo 210HP AWD Edge on February 2017, from the very beginning I noticed a strange aerodynamical noise or rattling, coming from outside that become noticeable at 90 Km/h (around 60 Ml/h) and very annoying at 130 Km/H (90 Ml/h) that is in Italy the upper limit for highways. Since I spent 90% of my time on highways, as you can imagine, this noise becomes a serious problem.

 

 

Of course the official Ford Tester says...."He doesn't have a solution".....

 

Following a link in which you can find the link on youtube to a video in which the noise is quite noticeable (not so much as when you are driving the car), my speed was around 90 Km/h (60 Ml/h), of course is not related to the motor, even if I put in Neutral my gear, the noise is exactly the same, not related to the cup holder or to the black plastic cover behind the mirror, I checked the seat's screws, and all seems to be quite fastened. I have even checked inside the engine van if some cables or pipe is loosed...but nothing seems to be....

 

Should someone experienced the same problem ?

 

Thanks to all

Just a guess, but it might be a window or door seal. Can you tell exactly which corner of the vehicle the noise is coming from? For that matter, front, side, or back? It might be helpful to have a passenger move around the interior of the vehicle to see if they can isolate exactly where the noise is coming from and work from there.

A flapping type of sound?  Probably much more audible with windows cracked a bit.  Like Chipster said, door/window seal is a possibility.  Also the mirror itself, the mounting has been an issue in past MYs.  Finally, check the wheel well liner to make sure it is secured.  You would be surprised how many are missing their security screws.  The bumper is elastic plastic, so if not secured to the liner, it will flex & flap.  As will the liner.

Maybe it's "famous" Vista roof rattle?

Hi to all,
 
The noise seems to come from the downside of the car. I have tried even to close the external rear mirrors, nothing changes. At a first inspection down the car, seems that there is a big central cover locked to the car frame using some clips like the one's I attached in the picture. Some of these seems to be loosened. If I move them, they makes a "plastic" sound, like the one I can heard in the car. The cover have a large aperture in the carfront and I supspect that, when the air flow into the cover, this start to move and the plastic clips produce the rattling, higher is the speed more is the noise I can hear.
 
Does know anyone how to fix those plastic clips ?
 
Thanks a lot.

Try removing and reattaching them (the center usually either pops out or in to loosen them) or just replace them.  Pretty cheap and easy either way.

Hi,  Reply to rattling noise. I have a 2013 Edge SEL that had a rattle sound coming from the underside. It turned out to be the plastic cover under the gas tank. Wind would get between the cover and tank and cause cover to vibrate/rattle.  I pushed a stiff piece of rubber about 1/4" thick and about 4"x 5" between tank and cover.  I accessed from the passenger side.  I'm assuming the gas tanks and covers are the same????

Ok this is rather unclear.

 

I have the same noise on windy days or when driving at 75mph or higher.  A friend has a base 16 Edge with the same noise.  Can you better explain exactly what you did to resolve the noise issue.  I don't believe it is related to the seat belts.

Help Please as well --  I have a new 2016 Edge Titanium AWD Purchased in Feb. First Ford and I am mostly impressed. I have what I think is the SAME noise. At about from 60-80 mph and depending on head wind- I get this annoying rattle. I think from underneath as well. With all the thought and impressive tec in this car- I am pretty miffed about this!  I have contacted the dealer and we will be going for a ride- but if it is a silly fix- then I sure would like to do it myself and save the pain of an appointment. Does anyone have some definitive fix here? I don't know what a plastic locker and undercover is. Is this that acoustic looking material UNDER the car? Because it sure looks like it would flop around at speed. Any help appreciated!!
