Dashboard Buzz/Rattle

2014 Sport

Some kind of low frequency buzz or rattle coming from front right of cabin - could be in the glovebox area, could be passenger A pillar airbag cover which is also surprisingly loose (I can slide it up and down about half an inch), could be buried in the passenger side console. Difficult to tell.

Starting to get annoying, anyone had similar issues with an identified solution? Also heard some dealerships have devices able to identify the source of dashboard rattles - Internet folklore perhaps?

There was a thread not too long ago about a fuel line bracket in the engine compartment that could buzz like you describe. Maybe start there?

Check the cover panel under the passenger-side dash. Mine was rattling. It's held in place near the firewall by pins with rubber isolators. The pin in the center of the panel had too much slack and was making noise. i simply pulled on the panel and the center pin popped under the hole, creating a wedge. I haven't hear it rattle since.

That's the general area it seems to be coming from - I'll definitely check it, thanks.
