Fixed nagging rattle when going over bumps

Steering wheel rattles when going over bumps.
Took it to indy a few times and they couldnt isolate problem.
Thought its some wire connecting to airbag or the electronic control buttons.

But when fixing the squeaking turn problem I found that the speaker underneath the footwell was loose. INteresting how sound travels and got me confused.

Pushed it back in and all was fine.

BTW the steering squeak fix was simply to put lithium grease over the steering shaft where it touches some plastic bushings.

Just loosen 3 screws underneath the footwell above pedals and pull out the cover and you will get a good visual.

5 min job tops.
