One spot that is giving me some resonating and or reverberating is the plastic housing that covers the sun roof control/dial.
Is this easy to take off & sound deaden?

It makes a plastic rattling noise right by my head, and the only way to quiet the noise (so far) is to put pressure on it with my hand......

Anybody try to quiet this rattle with sound deading or another method?


Thanks in advance! :)

Small flat head will pop the panel off, here's a DIY
The panel mounted on the roof was vibrating with my music. Here is the fix.

Take a small flat head screwdriver and insert into the slot on the sunroof control panel.

Twist the driver as if unscrewing and the panel will open and you can gently pull it out.

Once off, place a piece of foam (2" square or rectangle cube) up under where the panel goes back.


Don't press the foam in, as you want the foam to be between the panel and roof.

Gently press the main clip inwards when closing.

Once about a 1/4 inch closed, it should snap back in place.

Rattle Resolved :)

Awesome! Thanks for this...... I probably can get that foam at like Home Depot or Lowe's, huh?

I wonder if a little piece of dynamatt or damplifier on that plastic would help too?

Usually people put a thin foam like Ensolite or Overkill in between plastic pieces to quiet rattles and squeeks.
