Is there any solution for wastegate rattle for our cars/turbos (2.0L, IS20)? Seems to be a common problem on our cars. Sure would like to find a solution for this annoying racket.

Easy solution would be to replace it with a newer WG.

There isn't a solution because it's not a problem like it was for the MK6. How did you come to this conclusion?

Dumb people making dumb videos, they all do that when the car is off...

The one thing I have not been able to find is a video of what this actually sounds like with the car running. Mine makes a strange noise at idle that sounds like a sporadic hissing, not an exhaust leak.

My is20 Wastegate rattled like crazy. It was very noticeable while driving through tunnels or next to parked cars.
