Rattle in overhead console 2014

Anyone have rattle in the overhead console? Rattle stops if you push up in the center. Would take it to the dealer, but if easy to remove I'd rather do the foam attack myself. This is on a 2014 limited with the panoramic moon roof. Thanks

You don't have sunglasses in the holder do you? I hear mine rattle a bit every now and then.

I was hoping the glasses were the issue, but nope, I took them last week. I found the interior removal link on this forum, might give the removal a try to stuff with foam. Hopefully, no clips break. I will talk pics as I go, if it works, I'll post, otherwise trip to dealer. I just haven't had good luck with service departments fixing rattles. I think they find it petty. I find the lack of rattles speaks to a quality build.

Re: Rattle in overhead console 2014

Fixed. Followed the thread posted on this forum for the interior parts removal. I didn't actually have to fully remove, only pull on it like I was, it then clicked. All better now for this. I think you'd need Hercules to actually get the clips out.

Re: Rattle in overhead console 2014

Shewstring,

What was the source of the rattle? Did you insert or add anything to quiet it down? Mine has the same creak / rattle. Appreciate any pearls of wisdom before I pry it down (which end did you start with).

Thanks!

I ended up just pushing up on the edges, it clicked in then. Trying to actually remove was next to impossible without experiencing a snap crackle pop.

Re: Rattle in overhead console 2014

I had the same issue with the rattling console in my new Overland, I made the dealer fix it. They said it was a loose clip. Had I joined this site sooner maybe I could have fixed it myself.

I yanked on the front end near the windshield a little but didn't pull it down completely nor did I hear a click - but - sound is gone for last two days... Crazy.

Re: Rattle in overhead console 2014

Hope it stays that way. The clips don't always seem to be fully locked.
