Does anyone know what's inside the rear hatch on a WRX wagon?

    Hey, all.

    I'm considering sticking some expanding foam in the space between the
    felt 'liner' of my 02 WRX wagon rear door and the door itself. I have a
    large stereo subwoofer in the back, and _something_ in there is
    rattling. I think it's some of the wiring tapping against the metal of
    the door. ;)

    I'm considering several options, including stuffing some small blocks
    of soft foam in the space to press the wiring in place, or perhaps even
    using some of that expanding spray foam.

    I don't think there are any 'moving' parts in there, just wiring. So I
    don't think there's much risk of problems if I gently pack some foam in
    that space.

    Does anyone agree/disagree??

  2. In my 95 Legacy, there are a couple of rods that link the hatch keylock
    mechanism to the latch mechanism. If I filled it with foam I wouldn't be
    able to lock/unlock the hatch anymore.

    Mm. I expect I should be seeing the same thing. Perhaps covering those
    rods with some kind of half-pipe before sticking the foam in will be

    Or, I guess I could use small foam blocks and simply target the areas
    that have obvious bits of wiring...
