is it squeeking from the center console passenger side?
I had this rattle and you can test it by jamming your fingers between the center dash and center console on drivers side. (where the ash tray is)

There is a TSB on that....

seat belt tensioner also has a TSB.

Can you tell me more about this TSB? I assume they're numbered or something. I have the same rattle and would like to be able to point the service advisor to the exact TSB to save time and avoid needless pulling apart of the interior pieces.

wow, i think i experienced the same thing.... rattles gone on wet rainy days, and started to appear on dry conditions.... hm, wondering what might cause that.

hi,

I have the same problem, slight rattle over uneven roads, or when turning.
The sound becomes less after I washed my car ... and when it rains, and waiting for dry weather to see if the sound comes up again.

try pressing the corner(roof) right above the seatbelt....I don't really know how to explain it. I press it and hold it for a few minutes and seem like the rattle just disappear.....TOW, I hope it will never come back...annoys the hell out of me
