Dash Rattles


oquevix

Question

2003 Yukon, 5.3L, VIN 1GKEK13Z83R There is a rattle coming from under the dash directly behing the speedometer where the dash intersects the windshield. The dash is not secured well to its mounts at this location.

 

How can I stop the rattle?

 

If I need a new mounting bracket, how much would a body shop charge to fix it?

 

If I need a new mounting bracket, can I do it myself?

 

Also, can I change the A/C Actuator myself? If so, where can I get a detailed instruction?

 

Thanks,

 

Brian

The dash cover is basically a shell. It has clips on it that slip in at the front edge of the support. It's not a bracket that can be replaced... well, at least not easily and wouldn't solve the problem anyway. Are you sure it's the dash cover? If you wedge something between it and the windshield does it go away?

 

As for the actuator... there are 4 or 5, can you be more specific as to which one.

Thanks for the help. I did take the instrument cover out and put a sock under the offending bracket. It helped a lot. But, I prefer a fix. Can I detach the actual bracket from the dash (it's not doing any good anyway)? This would really stop the rattle.

 

One the Actuator, it is on the driver's side and it is the one that stops the tic-toc sound (when I hear the tic-toc sound, I push the vent control button and the tic-toc sound stops).

 

Please advise.

 

Thanks,
