glove box rattle fix

new to this forum and figured i would share afew fixes i had made on my 2011 mustang 1st being the o so annoying glove box rattle, i noticed while tracing out the sound i could duplicate it by hitting the dash above the glove box, but if i held the glove box closed by hand it would not make the noise IE glove box not tight enuff solution open the glove box and bend the striker ( part the glove box locks to ) and bend it inward about and 1/8 of and inch or so to make the glove box sit tighter against the dash and the rattle is gone

Great tip. Just did this for my glovebox to get it to shut more firmly. I also noticed I had some loose stuff inside that could rattle around, so I moved it. I might go back and use some of that toolbox liner material inside the glovebox.
