Finally found the rattle in the dash--Now what?

2000 911 C4 Cabriolet

Ok, after a couple of weeks of troubleshooting, reading TSB's and poring over my 911, I have finally discovered the source of the annoying rattle that has been driving me nuts. It's a metal plate located in the driver's side footwell just underneath the steering wheel. With the car running I can actually reach under and touch the metal plate with my hand and stop the rattle. With the car off I can tap the same metal plate, and it makes the noise. It's metal against metal. This is major progress in solving the problem!

So now that I've discovered this what do I do next? Does anyone know what this part is for? Do I need to remove the dash piece beneath the steering wheel to fix it? If so, how do I do that?

Maybe someone else has had this problem and would like to share some info. Hopefully this is an easy one. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Cannot tell what part you are referring to, no pics etc. Typically, when the parts are rubbing the approved repair by Porsche is the use of a felt strip. An easy suggestion would be to get a strip of felt adhesive strip and see if you can't wedge it between the two part. (metal on metal) as you suggested. That should safely and permanently fix your rattle.

I am sure others will have other suggestions as well...

Good luck.
