Vibration or rattling around headliner/windshield

Hi Carson,

Noise problem solved.


It seems it wasn't internal after all. It was the air vent assembly located at the bottom of the windshield and goes all the way across the bottom of the screen. The rear portion of the assembly (which also holds the windshield washers) came apart near the center of the bottom of the windshield. It was "rattling" against the glass in such a way that it sounded like light rain...a clicking type sound, reminding me of the cereal TV ad...Snap, crackle and pop. The strip that came apart is now flapping in the breeze and no sounds at all.


So I guess it's a $100 fix to buy the part and put it in.


Sure did sound like it was a crackling in the radio amplifier to me. But with my bad hearing....ah well.

So...nice a quiet again!
