i had a little piece of paper fall into the speaker grill before i had my dash mat, and it was ratteling/bouncing on the speaker, and sometimes trash in the door panel does that to me, its annoying as ****. other than that i dunno mang.

that looks easy thanks but it doesnt look like ill be able to see much. Unless of coarse the dash speakers were so powerfull that they actually shook the bolts holding them in loose lol! then it'll be easy to spot.

I have the same rattle and I think I found it? It's the speaker grill "vibrating" against the A-pillar trim. How I found this was to take the speaker grill and pull it away from the A-pillar and like magic, it was gone!

I KNOW WHAT IT IS. I found it myself.

After you clean everything out, and you tighten the 'tweeters', take a look at that part that pulls off under the steering wheel. I haven't fixed it yet, but that's the rattle in mine. I think it's for fuses....

Anyways, long story short, get the thinest weather stripping you can find and adhere it to one side. Voila! No more rattle.

i complained to the dealer about that. it was happening like 2 months after i got my car and annoyed the **** out of me. they said they just stuffed some more foam in there and it stopped rattling.

the tape would just adhere it to both sides (if you used double sided). Really, you just need a small piece of weather stripping. Honest.
