To the OP, PM me. You will need to remove the dash and used some adhesive backed closed cell 1/8th" foam to help decouple the dash from it's mounting points. I think that I have some out at the shop.

Poly mounts drive me crazy too.

Sniper Focus I'm feeling left out...

I only have poly in the dogbone. My steering wheel might vibe a little with the AC on, other than that I have no major rattles from the dash.

TucsonSoldier88 Looks like dynamatting the whole car is the only thing that could work but who wants to make that expensive experiment.

I don't have any poly mount and in the winter the rattles suck, so I just do the same... Crank up the stereo, LOL.

sleepyboy Mine rattles as well, it also drives me crazy. One day when I have time I'm tearing into to find the rattle.....one day.

TucsonSoldier88 Maybe some loosening and re-tightening of bolts would work. I had horrible rattle when my Kenwood speakers were installed. It was like something was loose. When I took it back to get fixed they took the panel off looking for the rattle and put it back together saying they couldn't find it. I'm assuming just that alone is what fixed it. Maybe I should take my dash out partially and then put it back together?

ukfan50 All of our SVTF's rattle. Mine does it in the winter but not really at all in the summer, so I've learned to live with it.

DarkSVT03 Yep it does. It's pretty bad... Lol. That's the only thing that drives my nuts about my car
