    Default ARGHHHHH rattling!!!

    Its annoying me silly. Got a rattle behind the dash somewhere at the back of the sat nav screen (or that is where it seems to be). It is like a loose bulb in a bulb holder and it is really apparent at around 30 - 40 in 3rd gear and I do a lot of urban driving. Just a slight rattle but if you are able to hear it it drives you nuts cos then you cant STOP hearing it!!

    Already had the dash open to see if I could track it but maybe I didnt go deep enough.

    Anyone give me a pointer if they have experienced anything like this before?

    Try this mate, close the vents and see if it goes, it it does it suggests that either something has dropped into one or maybe one of the motors is on it's way out, hth.

    Took the glovebox out and the computer screen (cos that is where the rattle seems to be coming from). Heard that the vent fittings can come loose so I taped them up. Taped up any connectors on the wiring loom that runs behind the glovebox. Put felt pads on any trim - trim contact that looked as if it might rattle. Secured all the screws behind the screen (none were loose) and checked the screen to make sure it wasnt moving. Checked the glovebox light was secure -- and guess what!!!

    RATTLE IS STILL THERE!!

    Checked the vents Vaux, and it makes no difference.

    Its like a glass bulb rattling in a plastic holder and it only happens at certain revs/speeds. No-one encountered this before?

    Check the bolts securing the centre console, may be a touch loose, they can cause a maddening rattle!
