    Default Dash Rattle

    Can anyone help -I've got a rattle in the dash sounds to be behind the centre console and sounds like two plastic plates vibrating against each other. Problem started after main dealer fitted a new clutch under warranty - I know they shouldn't have needted to move any trim in the car but I'm aware they had major problems getting gears with new clutch resulting in a second replacement been fitted given their difficulty who knows what they had apart !
    I've had it back loads of times but they can't find anything, although not sure how hard they are looking - anyone else had a similar problem or knows hot to get into centre console ?

    Could be the aircon pipe bracket under the bonnet (just right of centre on the slampanel), its held in place by two small nuts/bolts. I had this and swore blind it was coming from the back of the dash somewhere.

    I hate rattles and creaks from inside the car too. Does my head in.

    IME, certainly in my case, I found that the noise you are hearing does'nt always emanate from the area you think the sound is coming from. When I had my Vec-c.. I used to get a slight rattlle which sounded like it was coming from drivers side of the instrument panel, but it turned out to be the 2 plastic catches which hold the glove box closed. They fit into a square hole either side, and placing a small piece of self adhesive velco tape (smooth part) where it made contact cured it. In fact... VX put a similar material on there originally, but it wears through, so its plastic on plastic... hence the noise.

    Your ears can play funny tricks, so dont always assume the noise is necessarilly where you think its coming from...lol.

    Ashtray assembly/cover was another thing which caused a little rattle occasionally too, as did the cowl around the steering wheel.

    It can take ages to track down all the little squeeks and creaks, but well worth the patience and effort.
