Rattle in Center Console
 
I purchased a 2011 Grand Cherokee Overland 5.7L All wheel drive in Late June. In the last two weeks, i have noticed a rattle, seemingly originating in the center console or dash area. It is intermittent and typically starts at around 30 MPH and continues through highway speed.
1) Is this common
2) How do i eliminate it?

Thank You

I have an annoying creaking sound in that area when I hit bumps or turn the corner. I can't stand it. Maybe its the same thing. Is yours a constant rattle?

I have it too. Only seems to do it when climate control on.

I might be able to help here. I detected a rattle a few weeks ago that I swore was coming from the center console. It sounded like it was coming from either the center vents or from behind the media screen. It was worse on bumpy roads. I couldn't eliminate it, so I was resigned to the fact that I'd bring it up to the service department on my next appointment. Then, on a whim, I gently pressed the underside of the rear view mirror towards the windshield. I haven't noticed the rattle since. Try it out.

I'll try it tomorrow and let you know. Thanks.

Didn't help. I think it's something with the climate control. If it's off I never heard a single click.

If you apologize for calling it....geez, I can't even type this without getting queasy, All wheel drive, maybe the rattling will stop.

Speaking of that..I saw an AWD CJ5 for sale today...
I have the rattle as well.... some days it doesn't make a sound and others days it is extremely annoying.
