10,000 miles and I've got a dash rattle!

I just turned over 10k on my 14 and I've got a damn rattle coming from the dash! I just fixed a rattle a couple weeks ago in the driver door... now this is going to drive me nuts! my wife says it's a truck and it's supposed to make noise. I expect there to be some squeaking and rattling down the road but at 10,000, wtf! Sorry, just venting

I had rattles I the first week, where on the dash? I wedged a small triangle of rubber between the window and the center of the dash. Rattle gone. I agree t it sucks, but you will work through them one at a time.

My 05 just started rattling real bad on the passenger side dash. sounds like there is a pen bouncing around under there on gravel roads! Not trying to jack your thread, but I understand how you feel! Does anyone know what causes these issues or an easy fix?

Trucks will be trucks. My Tacoma is like a Rolls Royce compared to my 1997 Powerstroke though, it jars the hell out of me and rattles like no other. You just learn to tune the noise out after awhile. Least that's the way I do it.

I think by the windshield but I can't isolate it. It went away completely for a little tonight after my truck warmed up, then started doing it again.

Has anyone else had success by putting something between the windshield and dash?

The rattling in my door was from the window motor wires. They are just free ballin in there smacking up against stuff. Doesn't make any sense that Toyota wouldn't think about that type of thing

This is exactly how mine does it. I've got an 11. It was really bad during the summer. I'd go to work still early and cool in the morning so no rattle. After sitting in the sun baking all day, it would drive me crazy all the way home. Any small tiny bump would result in rattles near the windshield. Even now since it's getting colder out. Most days I don't hear anything, but on the occasional warmer day it'll rattle after sitting in the sun warming up. Not really sure what it is but would like to find a fix for it.

I've got a rattle during cold weather that's not there during summer months. I forced a small piece of Velcro between the small storage pocket (under r side of steering wheel) between that and the main radio/heater console. Hope that makes sense.

Your wife is smart. But a little rattle at 10k is all you have. You should be happy. Then again take it back to toyota and have them fix it

I have that rattle. Mine is being generated by the AC duct directly underneath the front+center of the dash, over bumps the duct bounces up and down and taps the underside of the dash. Wedging something between the windshield and dash forces the dash down against the duct and the rattle goes away.

If I remove the radio and reach back there I can wiggle the AC duct up and down and duplicate the sound. Maybe a zip-tie around the duct to hold it down away from the dash, or some foam between the dash and duct. I dunno. I've looked in there and can't think of a more elegant fix than wedging something below the windshield.

I work at a dealership so they look at me like I'm crazy. I already had the driver side leafs replaced and the door checked out here.
