Any Laredo E V6 owners notice an annoying rattle while sitting at a light? The rattle sounds like it's coming from inside the dashboard behind the stereo or vents area. Loose screw?

Re: rattle
Have to checked your sunglass holder? Numerous people have the mysterious rattle and it happens to be the glasses.

I already checked that, I think. I will check it again the next time it happens. Doesn't happen all the time though. Thanks.

Happened on the way home. It's not the sunglass holder, but I grabbed the mirror and what do you know, the noise stops. So it's either the mirror or it could be the wire cover running down to the mirror. I find this interesting as I had sort of the same noise with my 1998 ZJ and it was the wire coming out of the headliner to the mirror. I guess I will take a closer look at the mirror, maybe a screw is loose.

Re: rattle
Do you have the camera and rain sensors on yours? Might be one of those covers.

I am glad you pinpointed it - this can be annoying. I also had 98 ZJ and it had screws there in mirror mount. Even though I tightened them mirror would still vibrate slightly at high speed (but it was not making the noise)

Neither, just the Convenience Group. But now that I know where it's coming from I guess it's not as annoying. Could be just the cable connected to the mirror or even the connector itself. I'm going to take a closer look today.
