    Default dashboard rattle......?

    I've noticed there's a rattle which seems to be coming from behind the dashboards, possibly more on the passenger side behind the air vent \ screen. Anyone any ideas who have had somthing similar and resolved it?

    It's starting to drive me round the bend, I'm spending more time pushing bits of trim etc than driving!

    I had a dashboard rattle that was ruining the car for me when I first got it. It turned out to be the plastic case where the mirror meets windscreen. Not saying thats your problem, but rattles can be deceptive, the dash reflects the sound making it seem like the source, when it could be anything. All you can do is drive around putting pressure on various items until it stops. Other people might have more suggestions what it might be.

    Got one too, I'm convinced it's the control box for the steering controls because I've changed the headunit and it's rattling about at the back. Does my head in. Just haven't had chance to whip the radio out yet.

    Ive just got rid of my dash rattle, took me just over an hour too lol. The previous owner had a bury c9060 fitted so I suspected loose or missing screws. I was right lol, stripped most of the dash and Found 3 screws missing and 90% loose. Also had a squeak from rear, after a quick search on here, adjusted boot latch and bung things and car has no rattle and no squeaks.......Good times.
