Default New rattles

My Bonnie just developed yet another new rattle. A friend who has a Lesabre said it has to do with the rear windows. . . but I'm sure there is someone here who has had the same problem so if you could help me out that would be awesome. I also have a rattle in the dashboard that I've been ignoring save for smashing it every once in a while to get it to stop. . . how hard is that gonna be to fix?

In advance, thanks for all the help. I have to take my sister up to the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport at the end of August and it would be really nice if the Bonnie didn't rattle the whole way.

A rattle in the dash is probably your lower I/P trim, the peice that goes around the radio. Might be the glovebox door... Might be the dash mounts...


All in all, where are they coming from? what side? What height?

Remove the lower hushpanel (where your ALDL connector is) and check the steering column yoke clamp. Does the column vibrate or move at all?
