    Mine is, too. I have tried everything. Hopefully someone else knows how to fix it. I'd sure be interested. Although....after a while, you sort of get used to it, and don't really notice.

      I don't have a WNT but my van is pretty noisy while I'm driving too. Make sure that grooming arm is tight.The table squeaks if I have it up all the way. Sometimes I leave grooming loops hanging on the table and they will get to swinging, and the buckles will be hitting the posts. Other things creak and groan. My tub has a door to it. That was horrible, I keep it in a drawer, and have only used it when I was bathing a litter of puppies. Most of the time I just blast the radio, then you don't notice all of those other noises.

        Is it a round pole post that does not go through the base or mount,uses a pin to set the height?

          If that rattling bugs you I suggest you invest in some ear plugs, as this will be the least of your strange noises and rattles and crashes that you will experience during your driving! Just wait until one of them (or something else) comes crashing down while you are driving down the highway. The first time it scares the **** out of you, after that you just cringe and hope it wasn't anything too expensive. I hate when I leave the clippers out. That is why I use Andis. They take a licking and keep on clipping.

            Fur Elite, that is so funny and so true! it's not the rattling that you have to worry about, it is the big crash and the "Oh S_ _ _, what was that!" feeling!

              noise on arms

              The noise is coming from the little hooks you put the noose on, drives me nuts. I hate those arms anyway, they are round and they do not tighten up enough for the dog to not move them. i am getting new ones. Square!
              What does a dog do on it's day off?

                try tightening the grooming arms and they shouldn't rattle... worse case senario put the door in b/t and turn up the radio that is what I do

                  The square ones rattle too, unfortunately. I just finally got used to it. When the big crashes back there happen, All I do is hope it had nothing to do with my scissors.

                    You get used to it.

                    Eventually you get used to the rattling and can tell the difference when something rattles that's not normal. I will be driving along and hear something in the back that's not normal and I will go back and find that either a plug fell out or a comb was left out on the counter and fell on the floor.
                    My husband hates driving my van because of the noise, He closed the door between the cab and the grooming area. I personally want to know what's going on back there.

                      I hated those arms!

                      Yes - the rattling will drive you nuts. I replaced that arm with two square ones when I had my van. Much easier on the nerves!

                        rattling arms

                        It does take a little getting used to, but I don't ever hear it anymore. I'm with the rest of you--it's the other noises that make me nervous. Like the first time the clamp arm for the dryer fell off while driving because a big dog had leaned on it and loosened it. I actually like the round arms for the little dogs in the van(hated them when I was in the shop with rotating tables though) I like being able to swing them and spin my dogs. I also use a groomershelper when needed

                          Oh swell! What noise? Tomorrow I will probably hear what you are talking about and it will then drive me nuts. Since a friend of mine had to replace her contraption on her edemco table mount drier because she didn't know that it should be lowered to rest on the table when in route...Well, I learned from her $90. mistake. I tighten and lower everything before the dog goes into the house. I swear the Schnauzers know my routine so well that they look at which switch or cord or comb before I reach for them.
