    Yes, I searched, but there seems to be nothing on newer explorers. I have an extremely annoying rattle in the dash area on my new 2018 explorer. Any ideas? It's driving me nuts, and can't locate it.

    I don't think it really matters what year the Explorer is. I believe the dashes are all pretty much the same given the trim, and a rattle is still a rattle. One of the more common complaints was the glovebox if I recall. When does it occur? All the time or under certain conditions? Can you reproduce it by knocking on the dash? Did you browse the existing threads?

    Take a look at the rear view mirror, I thought I had a dash rattle but it turned out it was the piece that is taped onto the RVM.

    Nothing taped to my rvm. Are you talking about the piece that covers the wire on the windshield that feeds the mirror? I gotta be honest, but GM now builds better interiors than Ford. My 3 year old Camaro had not one rattle. And that's after 30k hard miles with a hard riding suspension.

    When I'm driving over bumpy roads. It's not the glovebox. I can't replicate it banging on everything. I might have to have my wife drive as I press on parts as she's driving.

    Sorry, I was talking about the piece that is attached to the windshield that the RVM clamps into.

    For what it's worth--the side panels on the dash pop off near the door, at least on the driver's side quite easily. Have a look-see.
