Has anyone had a rattle near the front map light switch? In rough roads I am getting an annoying vibration noise there.

Im getting that too! It's been over a month now. It's tough to isolate (especially while driving). I've shaken every movable part on the front dash to identify where the source of the noise is (from my garage door remote, visor, rear view mirror, vents, etc., but with no success. I'm assuming it is the dashboard panels rubbing against each other because tere was one time I slapped my hand on the passenger side dash board and it stopped momentarily. Has anyone found a remedy to this?

Has your concern been resolved? Have you brought this to the attentiong of your local dealership? I can also look into this further for you. In order to do so, I will need some more specific information from you. If you could please send me your full name, address, phone number, the VIN for the vehicle, current mileage, and dealer name via private message, I will be able to take further steps. Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you.

Tricia, GM Customer Service.

To Fast200, have your dealer check the microphone in this area. You can look-up and see the mesh-covered microphone; it's in the vicinity of the switches you referenced. The microphone is poorly insulated and it rubs against the plastic surround. Have your dealer check this microphone and adjust if it's not seated properly. The rough road vibration you hear might be this small microphone vibrating against the plastic surround.

I think I diagnosed it as my garage door opener clipped to my visor. I've removed it since it opens my familys garage. We'll see if that was it.

Thanks Arizona, I think this is it. I thought it was my garage door opener but after removing it I was still getting an occasional vibration over rough pavement. I'll have the dealer look at it next time around.

On both front driver and passenger sides, where the seat belt goes into the post between the windows, at eye level, there is something rattling in there somewhere. Does anyone have an idea what this might be?

I think someone mentioned if you lower the seat position it will stop.

Well that's annoying. Lower the seat, or the seat belt?
