Dashboard Rattle

Recommended Posts

For some months now I have been putting up with an annoying plasticky type rattle from the driver's side dashboard and am wondering if anyone else has this or knows what could be causing it. It seems worse when the car is cold and happens more on gentle acceleration at about 20mph. I have held the plastic instrument bezzel but does not appear to be that. Any ideas as to cause would be welcomed.

Hmm sounds like something rubbing together if it is louder when cold.

What the dealer normally does is pack the joints with a material. Are you able to get someone to drive the car over rough ground and you locate it by ear, then press the parts of the dash to see if you can locate it?

The IS250 used to be plagued with rattles and squeaks
