dash rattle
1 Attachment(s)
When I start up the JK (manny tranny), I get a brief rattle coming from behind the dash in the middle. It's like the entire dash is on mounts and the engine shake makes it rattle. It also does it as I turn the Jeep off. Any ideas on what this could be? I get the rattle over some bumps too. I took the glove box out and noticed that the passenger side footwell air vent tubing was loose, but when I rattle it with my hand, it doesn't sound the same to me. :banghead:

TIA for any help! :thumb:

It ended up being the filter on my intake rattling against the side of the engine compartment. :rofl:

Little rattles/squeeks/noises drive me nuts.

I've got a couple tiny intermittent sounds I haven't tracked down yet. That they occur only about 5% of the time is of little relief.

I've got another one under the gear shift that sounds like little gear teeth "chinging" against each other at about 20 - 30 mph. Once I engage the clutch, it goes away. :surrender:

I get one from the wires going to the tweeter tapping on the plastic in the dash. I keep meaning to zip tie better but it's hard to get fingers in there and I don't want to disassemble it.

I got a rattle from where the bracket was that tied the original radio to the dash. When I replaced the radio, I didn't put the bolts back on and it took a month to figure out what it was. UGH, it mad me insane!

Mine's as quiet as a Bentley. :)

Okay, that's a lie...
