Question Has anyone been having a rattling noise in or near the radio?

My car has been at the dealers for 3 weeks and has only 1,100
miles on it. I have a rattle in the dash around the radio. The dealer has been working on it when time is allowed ... you know a non-paying customer :mad: They said a part has been on back order and do not know when it will be arriving. I'm picking up the car tonight and when the item arrives I'll have to set up another appointment! Has anyone else had this type of problem and has it been resolved? If so.. How? Dealer still doesn't know for sure what is causing it to rattle... if this new part doesn't do it... they are thinking of replacing the entire dash board Geeezzz... you pay
BIG bucks for a nice car.....and it rattles in a month! What happen to the good old days?

Glad to hear I'm not the only one! Dealer states it has been the only one
reported so far! Go to your dealers and get the problem checked out!

I have the same problem but it occurs when I drive on rough roads at 25mph and higher. Tech's couldn't reproduce, big surprise. I'm gonna schedule another appointment and will ride with the tech to help them hear the rattle.

I think I found it. I tried looking for it and let my wife drive the car and we tried to reproduce it. I found the noise coming below the driver seat. Its in the right side below, I dont know what it is but it kinda a cylinder below the right ride of the seat. Check it out.

Well... part came in and it's back in the shop as of 11/8/05. I was told they are working on it today. I haven't heard back from them so I have an awful feeling it isn't from the replacement part :mad: !
If this is the case they may need to replace the entire dash board

Latest update .. Directly from Niello BMW in Sacramento, Ca.
They have been in contact with BMWUSA about the On Going Rattle and there are multiple 2006's with this same issue! BMW will be MAKING a mold for a NEW replacement part -BUT- until then... WE are Out OF Luck! They have NO IDEA when this PART will be made! :mad:
If ANYONE does hear when this part arrives.....Let's notify each other so we can get this (*(&*^&&% Rattle fixed Thanks!

I will cancel my order for my soon-to-arrive e91 if we don't get a fix soon. I HATE rattles in the dash.

I have the same thing, sounds like it's coming from under the DVD drive/under the ashtray, that general area. It comes and goes, I have a couple of small rattles like the others got (sensitive ears) but they are really not that annoying, just little clicks here and there and you can only hear it when the stereo is turned off and windows rolled up. This one, however, is VERY annoying, it sometimes goes away in minutes but sometimes stays for HOURS, and it's quite loud when it's present.

I told the dealership about it when I took my car in for software update last time, they said it was coming from the shifter area and they fixed it, but nothing was changed really god knows what they actually fixed. Not gonna be bothering with the dealer again until someone has a definite explanation on what's causing it, but I'll be trying to find it tonight by myself. If onlly it was a little rattle like the other ones ........ but it's way too damn loud.

Yes, I have this one click that happens in the back from time to time. I think it's on the right side. Sometimes it happens when there is a sudden drop in the road. Anyone else have that one?

I have the same one. I think it is the B pillar. I took it to the dealer, but the tick is still there.

I think it's more in the back area near the back speakers or rear window area. I can't pinpoint it no matter how carefully I listen. If some people are having the same thing, then it might not be worth the dealer ripping the car apart to try and find it. That's always the dilemma. It's frustrating though but do most cars have some sort of noise anyways?

Took mine in and they too could not duplicate the rattle. Also like yours rattleing as low as 20mph over uneven roads.
