Rattle Somewhere Around Passenger Dash Speaker


Recommended Posts

For the life of me, I can't figure out what it is. I've taken the speaker out of the dash and the rattle is still there when I go over bumps. I just can't figure out what it is. I've looked into the dash cavity and felt around in there but I can't find anything that would be making that rattle.

Anybody have any clue what it would be?

i had a rattle there too, it was my whell lock and my tire gague in my passenger door storage box.

Well, mine sounds like it is coming from the dash passenger speaker area, not the passenger door speaker. But, I'll take everything out of the door pocket just in case the sound is playing tricks on me and it is coming from the pocket.

Well, I had a friend drive my car today so I could sit in the passenger seat and try to find the rattle. Funny thing was that when I was sitting in the passenger seat, it sounded like it was coming from the driver's side!

But, after a few minutes, I figured out what it was. There is a big plastic piece that covers the latching mechanism for the roof up above where the rearview mirror is on the roof. There are two plastic oval pieces that fit onto it to cover up some metal parts. Those two pieces are very loosely sitting in the plastic cover. They come out easy and have two plastic prongs that are used to secure them in place. But, the design doesn't allow for them to secure firmly and they just sit up there and rattle when I go over bumps. I'd have to wedge something in there or use double-sided tape to keep them from rattling. But, the rattle shouldn't be an issue once I put my hardtop on for the winter (unless it has a similar setup).

Yup, now I've got the hardtop on and I've replaced my rattle over hard bumps with squeaks over small bumps. I just can't win. :P

I read through the posts on here about dealing with the squeaks and put lubricant on the rubber seals but the squeaks continued. Plus, I don't think the top is down all the way as I can get a finger between the top and the car in the back. I've gotta take it into the dealership to get my winter tires put on sometime this week so I'll ask them if it is on right.
