    I have a 2008 Reg Cab 4X4 Taco with about 10K on it. I am getting a rattle, sounds like a loose screw against plastic, on the passenger side of the dash, almost directly above the glove box. Mostly when I am on dirt or gravel surfaces, not on pavement. At first, I thought it was something ratttling in the g-box, but that wasn't it. If I put my hand on top of the dash, directly over the g-box, it goes away. Any ideas on how to fix it or what it might be? Might it be the passenger side airbag?? Any help is much appreciated.

    I can't say what it is but I've had problems with rattles since I got my tacoma and the dealership is not interested in fixing it I've taken it numerous times to them and they say it's nothing

    mine was rattling here as well, above the glove box, i crawled under to have a look and it was the electronic box for the 4x4 hitting the dash on bumps, jammed some foam between it and the dash and its been fine since.

    My 2009 had the same rattle. I put some foam against the bottom of the passenger side airbag - rattle gone.
