Strange noise

I'm trying to figure out what is causing the noise. Seems like when I hold force against the dash, the noise would go away. When the air conditioner is on, the noise get worse sometimes. Has anybody had this problem before? I attached a video!

I sure have! And here is how I fixed it!

Oh, by the way, if any of you guys have a book of matches that is Dark Charcoal colored, I sure would appreciate it if you sent them to me so that they will match my interior!

Lol.
Some of the little vent doors had come loose and were rattling. I finally fixed them but now the whole assembly rattles, like yours.
I'm going to remove the vent and put some small pieces of self-adhesive weatherstripping behind it and see if that helps to insulate it from rattling against the dashboard. I'm going to do the same thing to the shifter bezel because it also rattles.

If it's anything like mine, my vents started warping. So I took some fishing line and tied it tight to hold it in the right shape, no more rattle and the vent flaps still work

Is this the part rattling? Expensive little guy. I had a folded up piece of cardboard aiming my passenger side light lol. It worked perfectly.

Yes! I'd figure it was something major causing the rattling but I guess it's nothing to worry about. I'll do the cardboard trick to help with that. Would replacing the radio bezel in the near future help?

If there is nothing wrong with it, I wouldn't replace it. I would do what stray said up there. It probably needs some kind of buffer to help it. You can pick up that weather stripping at Walmart.

i used that 3m trim tape, usually meant for taping crappy chrom trim pieces to your exterior. (Such as those awesome looking fender vents you can put on your chrysler 200)

but i just lined it up inside and that gave it something to sit on, and stop rattling finally.

Just pull that bezel and see if anything is loose or rattling. Re-install with some sort of padding like some sticky foam or whatever.

My fiancée used to shove gum wrappers in it to make it stop. I haven't done anything to it, but it hasn't rattled in a long time.
