    confused Original sunglass holder rattling

    I've noticed rattling sound from the area of my sunglass holder. So I'd like to remove the holder without causing any damage to the mounts. I already removed the screws, but the holder didn't drop-off.

    Is there something still holding it?

    if you open the holder and if you look inside it on the top then there shud
    be a few screws holding it in place,if you remove them then it shud unclip
    out from the surround,maybe the screws are loose and need tightening up
    try that and let us know wot happens

    Thanks for the tips.

    I did get it off, and found out that the plastic base is the source of the rattling. So I will put some armaflex between the roof and the plastic base, hope that helps. Let you know the results.

    Silly question here but it's not your sunglasses rattling is it? I had the same problem with mine and it turned out to be the glasses themselves
