Hi Uniacidz, I had the same problem with my XH ute. I pulled the instrument cluster out and the air vent was loose going up to the windscreen. re fitted the bugger with some silicone and it has not rattled since. My wifes Subaru has a similar rattle but we think it is in the vicinity of the passenger air bag. No way I'm even thinking of going near it. Obviously the radio goes up at times. Cheers, AU055

Hey mate, did you find that rattle at all? I have the same type of noise, behind the cluster, and I've had it out and filled the dash with sponge and rags and the pr1ck of a thing is just as bad!

Yep, tried that, I removed it and the cluster and it was still there :x
I shoved foam and rag around everything and it stopped for a couple of days then came back just as bad!

Mine sounds like a 5 cent coin bouncing on top of the dash and varies between the tweeter area to behind the AC controls, and noticed today, it seems to stop in the rain?! Driving me nuts!
