I seem to need to tighten bolts and check connections all the time. My Cobra has about 3,500 miles. A rattle here, a rattle there. Seem like a new one every 500 miles or so. Can anyone tell me if they have the same problems with their FFR.?
Only rattle I've had in 14,000 miles is the passenger door latch. About every 2,000 miles (or whenever it gets wet) I have to pull the cover off and apply white lithium grease to the moving parts. So far I haven't had anything to loosen up or fall off.
I am actually amazed how few rattles I have aqquired in over 4000 miles. The car has held together very well for its first summer. I have checked the car over very carfully each 2000 miles and have no problems at all so far.
