Default RE: SQUEAKY QUESTION...

There is a slight gap between the dash pad and whats under the dash pad.....the noise is the dash pad rattling on it. Placing your hand on it, press down...you can feel some movement in it and when its pressed down...the rattle stops. I believe placing black foam wedges between the windshield and the dash will correct it. The wedges should be installed at the very front of the dash...youll see a gap between the dash and the windshield where they meet.....place them there....they should be somewhat invisible since they are black in color. I think you can get the foam at Home Depot or Lowes.....like weather stripping foam and just cut it to fit. I would place them along the whole front of the dash so you dont get a rattle on the passenger side. Or if really want to get technical, take the dash pad off and place velcro (just the loop side) on the under side of the dash pad so it will cushion the rattle.

I have a slight squeak/rattle in my dash somewhere and when I hit a rougher place in the road you can hear it. If I put my hand on the dash, it stops. Any idea how to correct this problem?
Hey Cindy,
When my car developes a squeak in the dash, or anywhere two plastic parts touch, they are usually rubbing against each other. I spray some Armour-All in the suspect area and wipe off the excess. Squeaks gone and the parts look good too. Better than going to the dealer.

Mine is doing the same thing on the passenger side...It is due for the first oil change soon and it will be on my list of things I need fixed......since it turned colder here it seems even worse.......Gosh I hate rattles.

My two-step plan to eliminate rattles:

Short term) Turn up Shaker 500.

Long term) Install louder exhaust.


Or you could just remove the entire dash, I'm sure that would definately rid the noise and make your car go faster all at the same time!
