Default Wastegate Actuator Rattle
I posted a couple months ago about this. Below is a video I made showing the piece that actually does the rattling.

Sorry for the shitty footage. Using my phone and trying to prop it up. Still, the first part of the video clearly shows the source.

Normal? Not normal? No idea but is annoying as shit when the actuator opens.

It is not normal. This is part of the faulty design

Any idea on how to fix or secure these so that they cant flap around?

Its incredible to me that this likely impacts most Gen2 models and there isnt really anyone talking about our trucks rattling. I heard this on the first day I got the truck.

Look to the general 11-present f150 group. They will have solutions for all of these ecoboost problems that have popped up.

You're the expert so why don't you tell him what the fix is instead of some vague statement!

Knocking sound. Dealership says it's "normal" & "not problematic", but I'm concerned
