    My pista has a rattle at a lower speed which I figured it's coming from both driver and passenger's top seat belt holders (housing). I'm not 100% sure if that's the problem yet. Anyone experiences this?

    Yes but that seems not the problem that my car has.

    I don’t have that issue, but I do have a problem keeping the gas pump from shutting off during refueling, even with very little gas flow. Seems like there is an obstruction of some sort. Anyone else?

    On my 458 the seat belt had these back plastic caps that were kinda loose on there and kept popping off. I'm not sure if that's the same thing you are talking about, but on my car I just took them off and tossed them in a box.

    If it’s only happening on the passenger side when you have no passenger likely it’s the metal part of the seat belt hitting the carbon fiber of the seat.

    Does it happen when you have a passenger in the car that is wearing the seat belt?

    It happens on both sides, not passenger related. Not related to the seat belt itself.


    I will give it a try to remove them. Hopefully that's the case.


    Not sure where you located. Some of our gas nozzles have this problem in the West Coast here. I normally just push the rubber part of the nozzle all the way and lock it in then start pumping gas. It works fine here. I think the design should be similar.

    For what its worth I had the same thing on my 458 a few year ago. Sound transfers and it ended up not being anything to do with the seatbelt but in fact a "spot weld" that was causing the issue in the engine bay. Dealer after many how's found the issue. Your dealer has the most experience and IMO I would get them to sort it.

    Thank you. If this is not a common problem I will just send it in later. Just got the car for a couple of months, still enjoying it. I don't wanna send it in yet lol.
