Hi all, I have a rattle noise emanating from the base of the passenger side A pillar (righthand drive vehicle). I’ve tried slotting felt or foam in between with various results, nothing so far that has been 100% effective.
Just wondering if anyone else has this issue from either A pillar side and if the managed to resolve?

Are you 100% sure it is from there and not referred from elsewhere given the doors well known rattle issue? Part of our so called Mazda solution was door realignment and if you haven't had that done yet perhaps that could be part of it. I have not (yet🤞) experienced such a rattle. This is a new one on me so it could be an entirely different issue completely but try silicon spraying the car's door seal on the very top of the rear door rubbers just below the top channel as that is "solving" some of our known rattle issues. Good luck solving it.

Hi Alan, yeah, this is an entirely separate and distinct issue to the freestyle door rattle at B pillar. I used your velcro solution to alleviate the B pillar issue, as have had zero luck with Mazda thus far.
With regards to the A pillar when I press on the plastic trim around the base it muffles it. I will have to play around with some other foam or felt combinations wedged in the crevice.
