Just bought a Euro5 M8 and when driving annoying rattling noise coming from the rear mainly from the Flip up seats
Cab direct M8 so I’m assuming same seats as the E7
Anyone had this problem before ?
And know and solutions to fixing it as it is annoying me so badly every few seconds loud rattling and louder when go over rough surfaced roads
Please would be great help

Another question can I put on a London Vito Taxi Top big sign to the M8 top? As the M8 taxi sign is smaller and I prefer the London Vito Top?

As long as it fits ok I can't see why not.

Actually have realised it is not the Seats but the Sliding doors as have adjusted all seats and and still the rattle and have now realised it is the doors ?
Anyone else had this issue ?
Anyone know how to fix ?

Taxi/PH sliding doors are nothing more than a huge pain in the arse.

I would go to a local body shop and ask them as I suspect they have these issues with them all the time.
