Bed Liner Rattle, Fixed!!! See Page 3

My XTZ has developed a nasty bedliner rattle and i cant figure out a way to fix it. Its right in the center. Its very loud and annoying and it vibrates bad under light throttle.

Anyone have any ideas or fixed this problem on theirs. I cant be the only one. Weird thing is that it seems to come from the middle of the bed where there is not support underneath.

**** Fixed!!! See page 3 if you have this Bedliner rattle or vibrating sound. ****

Check your cage mounting bolts for the heck of it. My dash and bed were rattling like crazy on the last few rides and I found that all of the mounting bolts were about to fall out of the rollbars. Locktighted them in and it feels like a new machine, no squeaks or rattles. The heavy cage rattling seemed to resonate through the whole car. Might be worth a look.

yeah the cage needs to be tightend but this is definately in the bed. while driving my wife figured where it was coming from so i put something in the back, my dog, lol and the rattle stopped.

I can re-create the noise by just hitting down on the middle of the bed and it has about 1/8 inch of play up and down.

tilt the bed, you should see 4 orange rubber rings on the underside of bed, in one of the pics you can see they sit on the frame, if you have one or a few missing it will rattle.

Yep thanks moose. All my rings are present and accounted for... I checked that to thanks man. its like it needs another brace support through the middle and another rubber ring there too.

Also its not that its rattling against the frame like where those orange rubber rings are. Its the actual hard bed liner rattling against the dump bed frame its sitting on.

One thing i haven't checked it the screws holding the bedliner down. Ill have to pull of the tabs and check them. one or more of them may bee loose. Allowing for a rattle. I will check in the morning...

well tightened the bolts holding the bedliner to the frame. It was nice and quiet for about 20 mins until it heated up then the rattle was back. Its really bad and really loud. Its very annoying. I wont ride it anymore till I fix it. Its THAT LOUD!!!

On my 650 it's the latches that hold it down.

Try putting pressure on your rlease lever and see if it stops.

Not sure how you'd fix it though, mines not terribly bad yet.
