    Default Annoying Rattle

    Just got an annoying rattling sound from the front of the car when I drive at abot 70mph on motorways.

    I thought it was coming from the glove box area - unscrewed the glove box, find a couple of screws loose ... all tight now and still the faint vibrating / rattle sound.

    It sounds like a CD case in the glove box ... but no CD case in glove box

    Has anyone experienced the same annoying sound from their Vectra C ... what was the cause?

    Thanks

    Have you got a centre console? Mines rattles, If I just hold it firmly, the rattle stops. When i let go, the rattle starts gain. Took ages to find where it was coming from, rattles can be so difficult to pinpoint the exact area.

    good luck

    Mines got only one and it's driving me mad. It comes from the key area of the steering column. If I hold the key down whilst driving it stops.

    Try moving the air vents so they dont blow fully left or right.

    Took me weeks to find the cause of the rattle, but only during hot weather when I had the fan on 2 and the air con on.

    Think it is coming from the central front arm rest .... how do I remove this and investigate?

    I was a passenger whilst the wife was driving, could hear the rattling coming from the arm rest by the handbrake.

    Any advice?
