    I was thinking of buying some sticky back foam might do the trick

    I'm not sure but when you push against it it stops so it might not close tightly I'll try that foam and report back

    Mine did EXACTLY this. Remove it, and fold up some soft tissue (I used kitchen roll!) and blace behind the unit before re-fitting. Tighten up the screws and it will be more secure and not rattle. Drove me nute for months, and fixed in 20 mins!

    Sound like you have the blanking plate there , you can easily remove and replace it for the sunglass holder for about £10 eBay

    Mine too, but it's hard to keep your hand pushed on it when driving.

    For me it only happens when listening to dubstep, heavy metal is fine, no rattling!
