Chasing a rattle

Wed May 29, 2019 2:52 am

New 2018 40kWh LEAF. There's a rattle somewhere in the right-hand end of the dashboard (it's a RH drive, UK-assembled car). Any hints about chasing this down?

Check the overhead compartment if you have one. The direction of a sound from above can be misleading.

Don’t laugh but we though we had something similar and it was the seatbelt rattling against the plastic.
