Question about 2005 Ford Fusion

1 Answer

Rattles behind dashboard on Ford Fusion 2 '05 plate.

I have terrible rattles, especially on rough roads (everywhere round here!). They are coming from behind the dashboard, seems to be under where the windscreen heater vents are situated. I have removed the instrument cluster a couple of times but the dashboard seems to be a moulded unit with no access. Have looked under the steering wheel and removed the glove box searching for obvious loose items but all seems tight. I think I shall have to remove the dashboard but cannot find a Haynes manual. Can you help?

1;: is it the dash it self, press on it, doe that stop of change pitch of sound.
no?
2: i must be something inside. use a cheap rubber hose to your ear.
and move hose all over dash underneath to find the true source.
you never said under what conditions, it rattles.
parked (rats/mice....), idling,, moving, or only bumps in road.
or only during earth quakes, (LOL)

Tailgate on a 01' Ford Windstar LX is rattling.


From your description, I believe your tailgate is not latching when you close it. Slamming it shut instead of simply closing it should solve your problem

If the road is rough the dash rattles badly and behind the steeing wheel ratles going over bumps


It may be that a guide for the steering shaft itself is worn and this could well seem to be in the dash board since the first sleeve in which the steering shaft is held is somewhat under the dashboard.

Car rattles under right side of dash when accelerating


The rattling sound coming from the a/c system may be a sign of a failing blower, or there might be an object hitting the blades.

This can be inspected by an a/c technician, or if you are patient enough, you can check it yourself. Many automotive a/c blowers are located behind your vehicle's dashboard glove box.

Hope this helps.

Terrible rear end rattle


It's probably the rear sway bar links. If you can jack your car up and check right behind both rear wheels you will be abale to see the sway bar which is connected to short links about 5in long with ball joints.

If either of them are broken or not connected anymore it can cause some pretty loud noises when you ride on rough roads or hit bumps. They run about $35 per link so it's not a very expensive repair.
