Annoying rattle/vibration

Wasup guys

Ive had a really anoying rattle/vibration sound coming from the centre console cant quite figure out what it is! Its there faintly while im driving but alot louder when stationery, noise goes away if i rev it abit but when just idle can hear it like plastic vibrating.. Any else had this prob.. Or know what the problem is in majority of similar cases?


Thanks in advance

Ya I have this happening to me too. But under different conditions. Mine occurs when I'm up at highway speeds. 100kmh, or about 60mph.

It goes away as soon as I rest my elbow on the center console arm rest... Place. Lol.

Anyone any ideas?

I sometimes get this also. I know it sounds stupid but do you have change in your console between shifter and arm rest console? Sorry can't think of what it's really called! Or check inside your arm rest console for anything touching the sides and vibrating. My problem is usually either change rattling in that little center cutout or something that's in the arm rest console. Good luck

i have noticed another annoying buzz sound while driving but i found where it was, it was the plastic around the light under the sun visor on the passanger side, applied little pressure so thats gone but still have the main vibration sound coming from the centre console i personally think somwething is loose in the engine bay, will take it dealers to get it checked out
