    This one might be a little easier to hear.

    Just make sure the front passenger seat belt latch is pushed forward as that wobbles side to side. It was driving me nuts! the sound would disappear if I held the passenger seat with my hands while driving. Thought something was loose with the seat. But it was the latch. Also of course sunglasses in the center case always makes noises.

    My front passenger seat belt latch does not move enough to wobble side to side. It can however hit the armrest or bolstering. I'll move it down all the way forward when I leave for work this morning.

    I have nothing in the sun glass holder nor anything in the center console. I'll empty the back of the car tomorrow too. It will just be me and the car.

    Yeah I did the same exact thing.
    Did you get a dashcam installed in your car? If so make sure to check the plastic panel cover by the rear 3rd brake light. My installer didnít quite get all the attachment points. Itís 5 if I remember correctly and he only got 3. Good luck. Keep us posted. Good to know Iím not the only ocd person with rattles.

    Again, I did not hear any rattles when going to work this morning. We shall see going back today.
    I have a front dashcam but it's mounted temporarily with a suction cup. I don't want someone to be tempted to break in.

    oh ok..the front dash cam wouldn't really make any rattles, it's only when you have both front and rear facing and some panels have to be removed. i this case i think you're ok...hoepfully!

    1. Checked the front license plate - it is a tiny bit loose. I will reattached without the license plate cover. I started recording sound on my phone in the car and closed the door and went to the front license plate and wiggled and tapped it. I could not hear anything on the recording.
    2. Checked center vents while the rattle was happening today and it made no difference opening or closing the vents.
    3. Checked all seatbelts and latches and they look ok.
    4. Checked underneath the front passenger seat and found a wide white piece of plastic still attached to the bottom of the seat. Moved it around and did not make any noise.

    After exiting the freeway and traveling on city streets, the rattle was gone. Maybe it's temperature dependent?
    I listened to the latest clip you uploaded and it sounds very close to what I experienced. Double check these two connectors under the passenger seat are in place. In my case, it was the clip behind the one in front. Hope this helps.

    Shortly after getting my 2017 back in 2017, I had a slight rattle/buzz sound coming from the A pillar which is usually noticeable when temp is in the 60's or lower. Sounds like it's from the tweeter on the pillar or something. I stuffed some felt foam piece on the bottom of the pillar and the sound went away. Maybe give that a try?

    The most common one is the eyeglass holder but OP mentions it was removed.
    My Mazda6 was famous for this.. I'd be searching for weeks for the rattle until I realized it was the seatbelt.

    All the seat belts are ok and do not appear to make a sound.
    I checked underneath the seat again for the white clips. Mine looks different than then photo you posted. I couldn't get a good photo of it. Is it on both the right and left side of the seat?
    I don't want to start ripping out panels to get to the rattle.


    I poked around the front and found that the AC vent pointing down at the passenger footwell is loose. I wiggled it and the noise has stopped for a few days.

    Now the noise is back. I am not sure where it is coming from!

    Has anyone had any luck with the dealership figuring out rattles? I think theres only a year warranty for rattles.

    You should drive a Fiat Bravo (2007) from new. Now THAT was a pile of junk. Buyers remorse on that one for sure.

    Did you do anything to fix the vent rattle? Do you still have the CX-5? I'm surprised that you have had so many rattles. Maybe it was a early production model? Did you try escalating with the dealer/Mazda USA?

    I wonder if it's related to the suspension? I do hear a metal ping or two from the front right area when I leave the driveway.

    I'm at the Mazda dealer and they said they need the car for the whole day in order to find the rattle.

    What car do you have now?

    Does Mazda usually issue TSBs for rattles?
