Trivial Dash Rattle

Recommended Posts

I wondered if anyone else as fussy as me had noticed a creaking coming from the curved part of the dashboard, the bit above the binacles. If i press down on the front it stops. Also  stops when car warmed up inside. 

Just a minor irritation

Morning

You didnt specify what model you have?

We have a t27 2.0 diesel...and yes...I agree...its very annoying...and like you never could get to the bottom of it.

It sounds like a buzzing sound...as if you left something it the cubby holder and its vibrating around!

Thing is, it would be crazy to take apart the dash to find nothing!

T27 2011 Avensis Sam.

I had two noises one of which i fixed which sounds more like yours. The buzzing sound came from the front right quarter light air vent and i fixed this by removing it and siliconing it back in place. Crude but effective.

Ahh cheers mate, sounds like an interesting fix! so have I got this right....so front right quarter light air vent?

So is that drivers side...

Air vent infront of you next to the drivers window where you can open and close those shutter things

Or

Is it a vent right infront of the windscreen on the right side...dont know if there is like a vent panel in that corner actually!

Apologies if I have misunderstood you.
