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 :)

Mine does is sometimes. It never really bothered me though.

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.:dance::punk:

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.

i put foam between the sound bar and the roll bar. I have upgraded the speakers to 160 watt three ways. much better after adding the foam. about a 15 minute fix.. :-)
