Lightbulb ***Muffler Delete Interior VIBRATION***

Got my mufflers taken out, very happy with the sound, barely any drone. Pops like popcorn and turns heads all the time!!
Between 1,5oo and 2,ooo rpm there is a slight vibration coming from somewhere in the back center console. Is there ANY way of fixing that? It isn't that annoying but makes it feel cheap. Any help???

I have heard of people putting a towel in the center console storage area to reduce vibration. Give it a shot.

Just keep the bin open, it will stop vibrating.

try opening the collapsable bin(compartment near the seat belts). I sat in my friends back seat with his muffler delete. If i put pressure on the lid it stops the vibration. Try getting a friend back there and see

Sounds like the t-shirt and towel are the way to go! idrift4wd, you might be right with the lid making the noise!

I did the shirt, I stuffed it with foam, the rattle always came back. The only solution is to remove the sliding door.

Its really easy and it looks fine you just have an open compartment in the back. All you have to do is just pull the compartment out, it's just snapped in. Once its out there are either 2 or 4 small torx screws, I can't remember exactly how many. Once you have removed them you can slide the door off the compartment. Put the screws back and snap it back in the seat and you're done.
