Rattle and Vibration on Dash

Post by Brian566 » Thu Apr 11, 2019 7:49 am

Hi All
Had my FR since September 18 the last few week its developed a noise which sounds like a vibration noise from the passengers side in the dash area
starts as soon as you move off but goes off after a hours driving .
Tried all the usual spots emptied the glove box , thought it was were the dash meets the centre consul but no luck

Anybody else had a rattle in this area

" Thought i had gone back to my Leon " :D

Yes, I have the same problem. It's intermittent which makes it all the more difficult to track down, and of course, never happens when i take it to the dealer!

Have you tried cleaning the door seals?

Good place to start and remove as a possibility.

Also try turning off andon and moving all the air vents on the dashboard.

As it goes when warmed up, could be something to do with air ducts so worth checking if changing heater output between screen, feet etc stops it, if it does then suggests loose duct or distribution flap in vent. Need to try and isolate it, so easy to replicate when dealer is due to fix it

Guys, its probably the knob of the handbreak. If cold outside, it rattles a hit and it sounds if like coming from the dashboard).

Blaming a rattle on the hand brake knob is not exactly an endorsement of build quality. I'm beginning to think I should have bought a Kia or Hyundai - perhaps not as attractive to look at, but certainly better built.

Just check that bloody knob. Else I am satisfied with the building quality.

It’s definitely from the passengers dash Area but can’t find it there’s a lot of kit under there it not the centre consul or the hand brake

I find that the passenger side seat belt buckle receiver to be particularly twangy. I already got it changed and the sound came back. i now just have it packed with a demisting cloth jammed beside the seat. Not saying it is the root of your noise, but originally i was convinced the sound was coming from the passenger door, i.e. to the left of my ear !
