I searched the forums for dash rattles and couldn't really see anything similar to my car or no one posted any solutions to the problem.

I never had this sound before but I just put in an aftermarket radio in (which required the front part of the dash to be taken out) and now I get this really annoying rattle.

The rattle is above the oil temp guage and battery gauge area near the drivers door. I can put my hand on top and put a bit of pressure on the dash in that area and the rattle stops completly. However, I do not feel like driving with one hand on the steering wheel and one hand on the dash board :p Im thinking it has something to do with when I took off the front part of the dash but Im not sure..

Anyone have any ideas? Or anyone else have this same problem? Thanks

You may have broken off one of the clips while removing the dash fascia, and now it is loose once installed..

Good luck,
