    Happy days. I nice rattle, as if there is a loose part inside, has just appeared. Inside the centre of the dash somewhere, as if it's behind the left-hand centre vent. Any ideas?

    No, fixed it! It was the dash-cam mount, not inside the dash at all.

    And the moral of the story is? Do not take your wife's word for it when she is "certain" about where a rattle is coming from! Sit in the passenger seat and look for it yourself..

    Last time I heard a rattle in the dash somewhere, the dealer had to remove the instrument cluster, and retightened it etc...it went away...just to unmask other rattles (a pillar, driver's door).

    At least the A-pillar rattles are easy to fix. I was not looking forward to taking the dash apart.

    I've got this exact issue but my car is well out of the warranty period! Guess I'll have to try and fix it myself.
