What Is This Noise?


Recommended Posts

Had the same problem in my wife's 1971 Cougar years ago and traced it back to the long trunk spring rods that go between each trunk hinge from side to side. The 2 rods cross each other in the middle of the car and a metal clip that holds them together, to prevent rattling, had come off. The ES300 has the same spring rod setup and this may be your culprit. Check to see if the rods come close to each other, enough to vibrate and touch after hitting a bump in the road. Either put some foam rubber between them to stop the vibrating, or tie them together with a nylon tie in 2 or 3 locations, so that they can't separate enough to vibrate. Hope this applies in your case and solves your problem. If not, it was worth a try. Good luck!
