Sound Bar Vibration

I have a 2012 JK and there is an annoying vibration coming from the sound bar. At first I thought the speaker ont he passenger side was blown. It doesn't happen all the time, but during "talk" like commercials and some music. I noticed it seems to be coming from the cabin light area and if I press it with my hand, it stops...

Has anyone else had this issue? What's the fix?? I'm hoping for something simple so I don't have to drive 25 miles to the dealer and leave the Jeep...

Thanks in advance

I haven't noticed it, but if it's the light cover I'd take it off & put a bead of caulk or maybe some double sticky tape or make some kind of a gasket.

Good luck. And if I now hear my light vibrating I'm blaming you.

Thanks Sueby! Does anyone know how to remove the lense cover without cracking it??

Generally you just have to pry them off. Sometimes there is a tiny little spot to fit a flathead screwdriver in to pry. I'd go look at mine, but the SWAT team is here for a drill and I'll end up in a squad car if I go out there right now.

FOLLOW-UP: I found a few other threads around and went to Walmart and bought a couple bags of Polyfil. I removed the speaker from each end of the sound bar and stuffed it with the poly. I used a log wooden spoon to push it in further than I could reach with my hand (space gets a little tight). I packed it fairly tight from both sides and haven't had the vibration since. The whole job took about 1/2 hour...

You could either keep your hand there or turn the music up.

Got the same issue on my 2013 JKU and was looking for solutions. Polyfil is one I keep reading about and a few other more time consuming fixes.
