    Okay, perhaps you need to take it back to the dealers so for them to inspect it, sooner, rather than later. A test drive may reveal to them exactly what is vibrating do they can fix it free under warranty. Keep us posted please. (y)

    Yeah, that's a restriction imposed by the forum until you have posted more than a set minimum number of times. Don't worry, if you keep coming back you'll soon get there. Try not to worry too much about things, but when they start to get you down just let off some steam on here. It can be quite therapeutic. (y)

    ... And get your in good company on here!:);):(:mad::confused::cool:

    Yeah that thing was one of the things the dealer had to put padding on to stop the rattle. It worked!!

    Poo indeed! Here's hoping it gets fixed without creating more noises.

    Thought I'd report in since I just brought my car (2017 Prius Four) to the dealership to deal with a dashboard rattle. I didn't need to be driving to reproduce it - a gentle bump on the dashboard on the passenger side resulted in a significant vibration - though bumpy roads brought the noise out in full force.

    I was told that my rattle was due to the plastic dash vibrating against the navigation system amplifier. They placed a felt pad between the two, and the car has been dead silent since. Finding the issue and repairing it took about 4 hours, and was covered under warranty. Sorry that I don't have more detail than that, but hopefully it helps somebody!
