I found and joined this forum searching for a cure for the passenger side rattle on my 2012 Ram. I happy to make my first post one that will hopefully help some of you rid yourselves of the mind numbing rattle that so many seem to suffer from.

Mine started rattling at about 400 miles. It drove me insane that a $41K truck had such a rattle. Like the rest of the posts I've read I felt it was coming from the dash. It ended up being my hood! Driving down a bumpy road I decided to pop the hood (while driving) to see what happened and the noise completely went away.

To fix it I simply adjusted the rubber hood bumpers up on the front support, sprayed some graphite grease on the hinges and that did the trick! It's odd to me that the sound traveled into the cabin as it did.

I hope this helps someone out there. This is a great site!
