Default RE: dash rattle

where is your rattle at?

I have several: passenger and drivers side vents rattle. I pulled them out and I will be putting foam where they clip back on.
Also there is a rattle somewhere on the passenger side where the dash meets the A pillar, I think that I try to stuff foam or felt between them and see if that helps. I'm not sure if that helps you, or not.

anyone know how to remove the molding that runs from the base of the windshield and over the passenger window, same piece on the driver's side. I know there are rattles coming from that piece and I want to remove it, foam it, and have a quieter ride.

thanks!

I plan on using some kind of fabric and something like a butter knife to jam it in all over the place. I hate how much these cars rattle.

Default RE: dash rattle

my rattle is just to the right of center right near the windshield. It is a problem with the vend foam that has lost adhesive. If you push down on the dash it stops. I don't want to stuff something in to fix it. I want to really fix it. I know the dash needs to come out but I am not sure of the whole process. So I need a schematic of the dash removal. anyone got one?

Problem: My dash rattles...
Solution: Turn the radio up, you're driving a Mustang.

You really should stay away from aftermarket exhaust... and you thought your dash rattled now!

Anyways if it really bothers you that much, go bother the dealer and let them waste their time on it.
