Dashboard rattling

Wed Dec 14, 2016 12:35 am

Just purchased a '13 off lease. It quickly developed a rattle where the dash meets the windshield. Anyone else experience this or see a trend?

Thanks in advance.

I have a 2011 that does the same thing. I can't tell exactly where it's coming from and don't want to pay the price to fix it, so I've learned to live with it.

Are you sure it's coming from where you think? I had a similar rattle and kept checking under the dash. Eventually I realized it was coming from underneath the console. I opened up the emergency disconnect door in the back row, started to feel around inside and found that one of the tabs holding some cables had come undone and the cables were flopping around. I ended up getting some thick tape and taping the cable to the interior side and the rattle is gone.

It's definitely coming from where the windshield meets the dash. Like the previous commenter, I've learned to live with it.

My 2013 Leaf also rattles from the dash. I am not sure if it's coming from the speedo are, the radio bezel or the front dash close to the windshield. I only hear it when the radio and A/C if off and driving at slow speeds.
