    I have an '09 Sport, and about a month ago I noticed buzzing from the right side of my dash any time I get on the gas, I took everything out of the glove compartment and doors, I turned the air off and everything, I even pulled the glove compartment out and had a friend lay upside down on the seat trying to find the source LOL, if anyone else has experienced this let me know...bcuz its driving me crazy....tengo mike

    Do a search. This issue was just posted with cure on the TW forums just a few days ago.

    To fix this problem, you need to pop the hood and look to the left of the engine, if you are standing in front of it. There is a metal brackett there holding the wires coming from the engine into the Firewall. Push this brackett up as far as you can.... this will put tension on the wires going in and stop the buzzing. For some reason, the positin the wires are in with the brackett being in the current position.. gives the vibration to make the wires buzz together. I did this and since i did it has all stopped.

    I have an '09 dblcab and I was nuts to find that buzz, finally stuffed some high density foam along the windshield from the right pillar over towards the radio. About 12" strip did it. NO MORE BUZZ.EVER.

    Bad ass. My 2010 had been doing that (though seemingly intermittently) and I was thinking about taking it in for service. At the last minute I decided it wasn't worth having some tech's dig around in my car for it. Last time I let techs dig around in my vehicle (a 2009 Subaru WRX) it came back missing parts...literally. I hope this resolves my problem as well. Any links to the original thread? Thanks.

    The brackett you push up is not hard to find.... just pop the hood.... and look to the left of the engine.. you will see a huge wrapped up bundle of wires that run from the motor through the firewall to the ECU computer behind the glovebox. There is a brackett that is holding these wires... push that Brackett as far up as it will go... it took care of my issue.
