    Anyone have a dash rattle at 1200 to 1500 rpm when hitting the gas. My 2011 dc has done this since i got it. It seems to be getting a little louder. I am going to take it to the dealer to look at it during the first oil change. It sounds like it it left of the glove box behind the dash.

    I took my truck to the dealer. They fixed it. The blower motor was rubbing and making the vibrating noise didnt matter if the fan was on or off. so they installed a insulation kit and it is silent now.

    The last insullation kit they used on another members truck here consisted of several latex gloves. No kidding. Don't be suprised if it comes back in a short while. If it does take some felt paddind or a folded in hald shop rag and put it between your windshield and dash. This was the only thing that has fixed mine permanently and you can't even see it.

    There is a TSB for rattle behind the glove box area. Something about a harness that is not secured properly. If I can locate the exact tsb I will repost
