Dash rattle/noise

Recommended Posts

I just picked up an 07 GT3 as a second owner. The car is great, but there's a stupid rattle/tapping that sounds like it is coming from the front dash, under the chrono clock. It sound like a wire or plastic plug is tapping against something metal.

I've taken it to 2 dealers and none of them can find the problem and do not seem to be willing to take apart the dash (don't really blame them as it may cause more sounds when returned). I've taken out the cup holders, ashtray, AC vent, radio, and AC controls all to find nothing! I've searched and thought it was the AC vent as it seems like a few people had this before. I did find that the door lock switch does shake and rattle a little but this was not it as I've driven the car with the whole thing out.

Any ideas on what could be loose?

Thanks!

Mine's just developed the same. Same place, same noise but only between 3,000 and 4,000 RPM - strange how it only happens at those revs....

If anyone figures it out, please let me know.

still no luck, but asking around, it seems like it might be from the a/c unit/box, which requires the whole dash to be taken apart...

I ask again, how do I find the aforementioned postings?

I had a constant rattle which I believed was coming from under the dash. it turned out that the the suspension struts (both) were faulty . If you look at the suspension you will see that there are bars going directly under the dash which transport the noise from the struts.
