    Hi everyone...

    I'm getting a high pitched rattle / buzz at low revs from the drivers side dash at low revs in first and second gear. Only seems to happen when on the move though.

    Sounds like its coming from the A pillar, tweeter / air vent area but from inside the dash. Very noticeable and driving me nuts ;) anyone had this or got any idea what it might be?

    any help would be appreciated.

    nope never fixed mine, but i have isolated the instrument cluster as the source of my rattle... I've got another thread going about that specific problem somewhere. think im going to have to replace and recode ;(
