My dash has a few rattles. I solved two of them by stuffing a small strip of cloth in between the metal bracket and the plastic cover of the dash (had to remove a panel to get to them but no biggie).

Here in a couple days I'm going to remove the door panel and see what I can figure out about the one in there. I guess my advice would be, be persistent and don't be afraid to tear into it! Just make some notes of where all the pieces came from!

EDIT: I forgot, the high-PSI tires have a lot to do with it in my experience. When I first bought my car, the dealer had them at 28 PSI. When I bumped them to 40, the rattles began.
