Rattles when playing radio with high bass.

Alright, I have a 2005 V6 Black Mustang. I thought my driver's side door speaker was busted because it kept on rattling, but I figured out it was the window switches. I put tape on them, and it seemed to tone the rattle down a little bit, but it still rattles the more bass I have on. I am not going to turn my bass down, because I'm one people who are obsessed with bass. I just want to know if it's relatable to anyone else and how to fix it. Thank y'all for any feedback!

I think there was a ford service bulletin out about this years ago and the solution was to replace the window switch.

they cant be expensive to replace or just get some sealant and seal around it to keep it from rattling

My advice to you: get used to the rattle.

There's a plastic square piece behind the door handle (inside the car). I put tape on the back and that solved the loud rattling. But, the dash still squeaks, the speaker surround and general door plastics still rattle, etc. etc..

My 2010 GT only has 20k miles on it with the new and improved interior yet sh*t still rattles. Every 05-14 Mustang I've been in has this same issue of cheap plastics.

Yeah I have a 2010 and it has rattled from the beggining. You just have to get use to it, I've tried everything I can think of. The rattle always comes back.

It's really not that bad. I did a write up about taping under the window switch panel.

Just make sure whatever plastic piece you have, it's clicked in all the way. Otherwise **** really rattles.

Also if you have a loud squeaky rattle at any point, try moving the passanger seat one or two clicks up or down.

I have the same problem with my 06. The doors and the dash rattle. I think I have just grown used to it because I don't really notice it anymore, only when I have a friend in the car with me it gets brought up. The dash is definitely the worst spot for me, I haven't figured out anything to make it stop.

I just smack the panels under the dash a few times and sometimes it works.

Pretty sure the rattles on my 2010 with only 15K miles on it only came about after I had the dealer replace my AC motors in the dash. F*ckin' don't-care service men didn't put it all back together right.
