So to get at that, you pull the trim above the glove box, and then just pull the hvac out?

Fixed nagging rattle when going over bumps

Steering wheel rattles when going over bumps.
Took it to indy a few times and they couldnt isolate problem.
Thought its some wire connecting to airbag or the electronic control buttons.

But when fixing the squeaking turn problem I found that the speaker underneath the footwell was loose. INteresting how sound travels and got me confused.

Pushed it back in and all was fine.

BTW the steering squeak fix was simply to put lithium grease over the steering shaft where it touches some plastic bushings.

Just loosen 3 screws underneath the footwell above pedals and pull out the cover and you will get a good visual.

5 min job tops.

What did you do to have it fixed?

Does the sound go away if you hold and squeeze your steering wheel tight to absorb the vibration?
Yes it does. It has been going on for the last 3 months. I took it to the dealer, but they said that since the noise is not consistent, they can not fix it. The worst part is that I live 3 hours from the dealer, and took the care there twice without any luck.
Please let me know what you did to fix the noise. When I press from above and below the steering wheel, and change the position of the wheel, the noise disappears temporarily. I am thinking of taking my 2012 BMW 335i to a local mechanic.

Help, rattle coming from steering wheel

I have a 2012 BMW 335i, and there is a noise coming from the steering wheel especially at low speeds on mildly rough asphalt.
I went to the dealer many times, and none even investigated it further until the noise was more consistent.
It is driving me crazy...
The rattle only gets better temporarily if I press above and below the wheel, and move it up or down. It comes back later though.
Please show me a way to have this fixed, I am thinking of taking the car to a local mechanic that fixes foreign cars.
