    2018 Legacy, low miles, little abuse. There is a front end rattle that I cannot find. It sounds as though something is hitting plastic bumper, side panels or plastic skid plate, when I drive over rough paved roads. I’ve pulled plates and secured loose wires, hoses, etc. better than they were, but no luck.
    Anyone have similar experience and luck with solving?
    Thanks

    An interesting test that was performed on a Mitsubishi Raliart some time ago. The vehicle owner had a noise that also was difficult to find. The owner had a AUX input to the stereo system. I adapted the signal generator from the Android tablet to the AUX port and created the "offending frequency".
    Found a loose under body panel.
