    Need some urgent help here as the noise is driving me nuts! :sos: Not sure if anybody else here has had this issue before, but long story cut short there are some plastic jewellery "stones" stuck in between my windscreen and dash. They slide around during cornering and is driving me insane LOL! Any ideas/solutions are welcome on how to get them out of there.

    Pictured below are the pesky little things:

    I'm sure you've probably already thought of this and don't want to do it but surely the best way is taking the dash apart.

    can you move the stones to one side of dash and maybe a hoover with a decent attachement get them out ? Or a couple pieces of flexible plastic to use a large tweezers . Havent looked down at the clearance between dash and windscreen.

    Get a small Pritt type adhesive pad, cut it into 4 small squares, hold one edge ways in a pair of tweezers, squeeze to compress it into a lump, touch them with the pad and gently extract.

    Thanks for the advice guys, not had a chance to try them out as of yet. Had quite a busy weekend. Will let you know on the results/outcome once I've had the chance.

    Thanks again, Az.
