My passenger air vent rattles a good amount on fairly rough roads. This drives me crazy. One day when I was in a great mood, I gave it a "love tap" to make it stop, and somehow it ended up coming apart and half falling into the dash [rolleyes] THe dealer reinstalled it under warranty, but it still rattles.

Am I the only one with this problem? [???:)]

Also, would this be something to take to the dealer under warranty? I don't know how they might respond when I tell them "my air vent rattles" [confused]

mine does it too, got a 2006 here, so same as yours. My love tap was more like a knockout blow of love. Knocked it into the dash, and cracked the radio surround (the center vent is the one that rattles on my car)

Hate to say it, it must only be the new dash. My 2003 is as quiet as a mouse...Maybe try mounting a little dum-dum at the mounting pins.

Yeah, but at least my dash is quiet. [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] tongue firmly sticking out [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]

Seriously, is it vibrating where the pin holds it, or the whole thing?

i'm not sure what this "pass. air vent" is? someone care to explain more or post a pic please?

Something rattles in my car too ('06) but I can't pinpoint it.

I also have problem with the back shelf rattle (hatchback). anyoone got a soluton for this? I tried putting a telephone book on it, but it obscured my view and plus it flies when I steer tight. I don't know if it's exactly that, but I'm pretty sure.

ahh ok, I get the idea. thanks. i don't think mine is coming from that direction. I don't touch those things at all nor have a reason. How the manufacturer placed them, they are like that..[:D]

ahhh, I think it's actually called the "panel", but I call it shelf.

it's this thing.


all hatchbacks have it. covers the trunk so it can't be seen from the outside.
