malavalley is on a distinguished road

My dash rattled in my 2011. You could alleviate the rattle by ever so slightly pressing down on the dashboard itself above the radio. After 3 failed attempts by the dealer to repair it I pulled the radio and bezel out to investigate. What I found was the union to the defrost duct was too tight and would rattle with movement(there is a foam seal for reference that hides the joint). Since they glued the duct to the dash board, any time the dash board vibrates it cause the two ends of the duct to rattle together and resonate through the dash. I ended up removing the foam seal and carefully trimmed the ducts with a razor. I resealed them with some gorilla duct more rattles. I also did my fathers 2009 sport so probably problem over series of years. Hope that helps.
