Thanks Hywel, I,m glad this annoying door rattling problem is now sorted for everyone. I had tried everything wd40 , banging it,bluetack etc but something told me to pull that strip off and bingo there was the problem a couple of lose screws. It,s so nice to drive now the intermittent horrible rattle has gone.The heated screen does not work properly though , buttons work some mornings and not others and when it does work only the passenger side clears.
It,s such a shame the B-Max has these problems as it,s a nice car to drive.

Thanks Geri, glad this problem is sorted for everyone. I concur if the warranty is still in place let Ford do it as it was quite hard to get the shiny black strip off and if it breaks while Ford do it they will have to replace the part.[img]smileys/smiley20.gif[/img]

Good luck with it ! Carl,

I knew that it was a loose screw... I was going to be taking to door apart at some point as it was really driving me nuts. I had thought it was coming from the handle but wouldn't have been brave enough to pull at the shiny black strip without having seen this!
Strip removed, screw was extremely loose so tightened it up, will see over the next couple of days if I have a peaceful drive.

Thanks Carl - this little tip helped me find my rattle.


Shiny trim popped off rather easily. Immediately I could see one screw was loose.


However, the noise always went away when I gripped the door pull, so now I could see that there was a smaller piece on the bottom of the handle and I removed that too.


A couple of thin strips of PVC tape were added to the edges, then the part put back on, the whole handle and electric window panel screwed back firmly, and black shiny trim popped into place.


Like magic - noise seems to have gone! Will test it for sure when I hit a motorway on the weekend.
