    Hi!

    I started having this annoying rattle right around the 80-85 MPH mark recently.
    I just can't pinpoint where it's really coming from, except somewhere near the passenger side glove box area.

    It kinda sounds like a washer under a screw that's not fully tightened, flapping around.
    Before I remove all sorts of panels, has someone had the same noise and could locate where it originated from?


    Here's a video I recorded:
    The sound even overpowers the exhaust.

    And the speed limit here is 75 MPH so I hear it constantly on the freeway.

    Will the rattle happen at the same engine RPM regardless of what gear or how fast you are going? Trying to distinguish if it's coming from the engine or chassis.

    Yeah, the first test is to downshift one gear, and see what happens. And next, where exactly it's coming from? There's a rear passenger C-pillar rattle that is common, so you know. Man, that freaking noise would drive me NUTS in a hurry. Ha ha. Keep us posted.
