Vibration from around glove box!

Post by Geoffers » Sun Oct 13, 2019 11:06 am

We have just noticed some vibration noise coming from the glove box area. It only happens when it is closed.
Emptying the box makes no difference.
It's not very loud and not continuous, but now that we both can hear it it's become a bit of a bugbear.

Has anyone else had this and did you find a cure?

The source of a sound in a car can be very misleading. I would remove everything from every storage place and shelf as a first diagnostic. If it still persists, I would check that the pollen filter is still in place and not loose (behind the glove box).

Thanks Colin, we have already ran it down to the glove box area. Thanks for the tip about the pollen filter though. I'll check it out!

I had the same noise/vibration. It came from a loose trim beneath the glove box. A gromet appeared to be missing.
The noise was cured by squashing a sponge behind the loose trim.
