    EXTREMELY annoying rattle from behind the speedo dials?

    Has anyone experienced this or got a fix for the issue. It comes from the dashboard and sounds like its something behind the speedo dials that has come loose.

    It doesnt happen all the time but a pot hole can trigger it and banging on the top of the dash eventually sorts it temporarily

    Suggest you remove the instrument cluster, and disconnect the plug at the back. Get a bright torch and look around for a loose cable or other bit that needs securing. That should do the trick. Good luck.
