Loud rattling noise in dashboard

On the left front side of my dash there is a loud rattling noise. The dealership has 'fixed' this problem 5 times now and no relief. It sound like it is coming from the dash, but the dealership has insulated the e-brake handle and tightened the bolts holding the hood to the frame and seem to think that it is not in the dashboard

I had the same problem. I took apart the dash a thousand times, searching for the issue. It turns out you're right, it's the hood "hinge" bolts. Just place some rubber bushings on them, tighten them up, and maybe wrap some teflon tape around them, it goes right away!

Rattle dashboard

Yours may be different but on my 2007 prius I found out that the rattling or clicking type noise came from the dash rubbing against another piece of plastic somewhere up by the windshield. I just lived with it.

Loud banging noise when i go over a bump on passenger side front and a clicking when i pull into a parking spot or three point turn both left and right took it to dealership say they cant find anything

The clicking is the halfshafts or front wheel drive axles. I have a hard time believing that they have went bad already but anything is possible. The banging noise is something in the suspension, perhaps struts or a sway bar link.

How do I remove the plastic part of the dashboard around the defroster vent?

after you remove the main dash there are 4-5 bolts across the top of dash that hold the front dash piece in . and where the dash fits by the windshield are plastic tabs that slide into metal sleeves. When you remove bolts you have to pull dash away from window with a little force as those metal fasteners are very grippy. be very careful not to get pissed and impatient as you do not want to break the plastic tabs that hold dash down. Thank god i only broke one as there is 4 and any more broke would be a rattle noise probably . take your time and dont break things, you will be glad you did

I hear a rattling sound when I am traveling at over 40 mph on the highway. The sound seems to becoming from behind the driver side dashboard. I have looked under the dash and in the engine compartment but...

I had a similar problem on my 2007 RX350 and it was from the plastic gas tank protective cover under the SUV. There is a small portion of the cover that extends forward beside the gas tank, and usually has a rubber piece attached to it to stop it from hitting the floor under the car. The rubber had come of mine so I had to replace the rubber. This stopped it from hitting the bottom of the car at higher speeds. Worth taking a look at?

I hear a loud ratteling noise coming from where

The rattle is likely a loose shield or a bad catalytic converter. As for the loud banging, Have you checked the front U-joints behind the brake rotors. As for the Reverse noise? Auto or stick shift?

Air conditioner blows hot air

there is a mode controller/actuator in the passenger side area(behing glove box) that will make clicking and rattling noise when failed but I cant say it makes a "horrible" rattle but it is quite audible clicking and clearly is a noise coming from inside the left dash area

Rattling noise(s)

remove front door window trim and place 3 or 4 beads of silicone adhesive on the inside of trim to hold it to the door frame. replace the trim and let the silicone cure overnite. It's a design flaw. I had the same problem, the dealer kept replacing it and it still rattled. After I put the sealer on it, I haven't had any noise for 35,000 miles. Good Luck!!

Rattling noise

Try the cupholder on the drivers side. Then, if it's like the issue I had, push the plastic around the dimmerswitch wheel in toward the rest of the dashboard. THAT'S where the rattle was for my car. Also a 40mph and above issue. If that doesn't do it, try putting pressure on different parts of the dash to eliminate the fitting together of the molded plastic as the issue. Other then that, I'd have to be there to see what it could be!
