|A-Bomb||Thanks! This worked for me!!!|

Here's what I did to eliminate this vibration. Installed a rubber hose around the shifter cable where it runs under the dash. Zip tied it tight and the noise is GONE!!!

|Lusus_Naturae||I still need to do this. Mine only does it when I go over a certain set of train tracks.|

|XLR8||Mine was coming from the passenger sun visor which was receiving vibrations from the frame against the lip on the right side of the visor and then rattling the plastic behind the visor.|

|alejovh1||I have the same rattle but haven't been successful. Any other ideas?|

|wranglethis||Such an easy fix, thank you so much!!!!!|

|ryndne||thank you, thank you, thank you. I've been dealing with this noise on my 2013 (manual trans) for a few months. As others said, worse when its cold, but lately it's been all the time until it warms up (then it diminishes). Mine was most notable at 2300-2500 RPM. I read this post as I was about to tear apart my entire dash and literally ran to my jeep with a chunk of rubber. I'm so excited the vibration is gone that I want to run around my house like a cat that just took a poop. Instead, I will go run over something with my jeep.|

|jdambm||subscribed thanks for the revival.|

|dukedallas||Thank you! I have had a rattle outside from day one I even had it back to the dealer and they couldnt figure out what it was, I'll definately look at this.|

|XLR8||Any indications this might have been fixed in 2014 models? I have the same kind of buzzing/rattle as described. I think mine might also be the hood slots ?? (sure seems like thin sheet metal) and screen located in the center of the hood directly in front of the window.|

My 2013 has a harsh buzzing sound on startup, 1800 rpm but goes away in less than one mile. The sound comes from the standard transmission hump. Have not had time to investigate. Removed glove box and checked heater hoses out of curiosity and found sufficient gap between them.
Any ideas where to start looking?

|LEATHERFACE33||Just to clarify from those of you that have had this problem. Is it more of a rattle or a buzz? I seem to have symptoms of metal banging metal but not so much a buzzing sound. Seems to be coming from the same area that everyone had described. Are there any other areas that someone may know about where there is a metal on metal type of clang? Thanks|

|AgateSahara||Well, know what I am doing tomorrow. Thanks OP for the fix and pics. I was getting used to it though - it's a Jeep thing right? Thanks again.|

I have a 1999 Wrangler with the same symptoms, noise when cold, no noise when warmed up. But when I pulled the glove compartment I could find no such lines. If I could find a way to find those lines I would try to do the same you did for your 2012. Obviously my heater lines come into the drivers quarters somewhere else.
Any ideas anybody?

|legitposter||My '13 is rattling/vibrating when cold. Based on sound, it seems exhaust related and it doesn't seem close enough to be right there in the dash. Either way, I will try your fix and report back.|
|02-27-2013 11:14 AM|
Believe it or not, dealership informed me that the sound was normal after 3 days of inspection. Will try this out and see.
Thanks for the thread, it should be stickied. The sound is annoying and time consuming for a dealer check up.

|dcaprio||Yes. It only happens on cold morns, usually below freezing. Never noticed it in the warmer months. This morn it was down to 13 and still not rattle...so far so good.|

|dcaprio||Tried this fix yesterday in my 2012 JKUR that had the annoying cold morning rattle. This a.m. it was 20 degrees and no rattle. Thanks to the OP for figuring this out and posting it!|

|CGNY||Great thread and perfect timing for me as i just got my JK and am getting more annoyed each day with that vibration|
|02-13-2013 10:15 AM|
This noise has been driving me crazy. Dealer told me it was a "normal" sound!
Thanks for the solution. I will implement asap.

I'm planning on getting at it this weekend and see if my issue is the same as the above issue/fix and if this fix makes a difference....
Fingers crossed until then...
|09-01-2012 04:00 PM|
Did you ever find out what this was?
|08-19-2012 08:00 PM|
I had slightly different symptoms but I do believe the root cause was the same. Mine would vibrate around 4-4500 rpms but only on certain days.. never was able to reliably reproduce it but since I did the fix, it's been quiet!
Question, those hoses get pretty hot.. anyone check theirs after and has there been any melting going on?
