Annonying Rattle!

Thanks to the potholes I have a new rattle on the dash. I have a 2014 Impala. The rattle is coming from that little cover plate that hangs over the touch screen. I can slightly mive it back and forth and have tried to tighten what screws I have found under it when the screen is in the up position. That didn't help. The only thing that quiets it, is if I shove a wooden shim in the little space between that little cover and the actual touch screen itself. Its just enough leverage to quiet everything. Any thoughts on how to fix, or what to tighten? Looks kinda tacky having a small piece of wood shoved in my dash.

I have a 2014 Impala 2LTZ.

Buy some self-adhesive foam or fabric pads (various sizes, thicknesses and shapes made) at Home Depot or Lowes (hardware Department, blister pack cards) and apply them under the lip / edge of the top cover plate you mentioned. You may have to experiment a little with the pads to stop the rattle.

Another “one-post wonder” who doesn’t know how to acknowledge a helpful post or say thank you.
