    Default Dashboard Contents ?

    I have a 2005 2.2 SRI Vectra and I have this really annoying noise coming from the left hand side of my dashboard.
    It sounds like a marble rolling around inside the dashboard.
    Anybody any ideas as to what might have worked loose or become detatched ?
    Is there anything that is prone to causing this ?

    My initial post about this was on the suspension forum because I thought it might have been suspension related.

    I have tried all of the obvious: glove-box door/locking mechanism / I removed the ash tray thing but the noise is very obviously at the top towards the windscreen.
    All electrical items appear to be working so I can't see it being a plug off something.
    I had a 1.8 SXI before this car which made EXACTLY the same noise.
    Any ideas ?

    I had a similar problem with my Vec -c,discovered it was the box which held the locking wheel nuts & adaptor,worth a look.

    Don't they use a glue for the airvent, and occasionally the fixings can work free
    The Vectra B used to suffer this quite a lot, and the only solution was to remove the dashboard, replace the glue, and allow to dry for 24 hours

    confused

    Thanks for the answers.

    The glovebox was the first port of call when this noise started, and yes the box of wheel nuts did seem possible. But sadly it wasn't this.

    As I said my 1.8 SXI had exactly the same noise under exactly the same conditions.

    The airvent thing does seem very plausible, but the vents all still work, or at least appear to ?
