Post Latest Fixes for Ghibli

So I got some new fixes applied to the car. I am still waiting in for the wastegate clip to arrive from Italy. Should be there in the next 7 days and then it can be installed. I am posting the pic of the invoice, in which you will see the new insulation work that was performed by the dealer.

On the invoice its item number 3

On item number 2 you can see the wastegate clip as special order. Also the part number of both the things are there on the invoice.

let me know if you need any information.

Is this your first attempt to correct the sub rattle noise or it's an additional measure to remediate the issue?

Ok its not the Sub Rattle noise its the insulation for the engine noise and this insulation goes in somewhere in the steering column..

Wastegate rattle sound

my dealership in MD told me that "Maserati has been working on a fix for this. At this time the bulletin has not been released and the supply of clips is not sufficient at this point. Yes there is a limited number of cars out there that have been fixed on the first wave for extreme cases. "

hope fully between Nov15-Dec 15 2014.

If you see my invoice its a special order, so if you ask your lazy dealer to put in a request it would get in as a special order so you can have it as well. Just like i did.

The waste gate(s) clips fixed the "paper flickering" noise.

From what you wrote, the engine noise you have paper work for is not related to that.
How is the noise. Can you describe it?
Thanks,

If you ask me I never had any sort of rattling noise in the car. When i went to my dealer to ask for the wastegate thing, since i noticed it recently and there was a very faint noise, he basically ordered the clips and also said there is an other fix from Maserati for the insulation for the steering column which will eliminate any engine noise coming in the main cabin, the fix is for that.

Its more for insulating the car better for minimizing any noise coming from the engine bay area.
