  • Dash rattle!

    Hello all,

    I have a rattle in my dash friom the clock cluster area. It goes when I press down on the dash above the clocks.

    Its at about 2500 rpm when cruising or when reving when standstill.

    Anybody else got this and found a way to cure it?

    Vauxhall said it wasnt covered under warranty!

                    The rattle with the clocks is a known fault and there is a part that needs fitting (two foam strips) to sort it:

                    Subject: Instrument panel (IPC) - Creaking noise
                    Models: Engines: Option:
                    Astra-H 2004... All


                    Complaint: Noise coming out of the area of the IPC between 12-13 degrees ambient temperature.

                    Cause: The noise occurred between the IPC and the dashboard. The noise disappeares if the IPC is pushed to the dashboard.

                    Production:

                    Remedy:
                    In case of customer complaint remove the IPC and install two addtional
                    foam strips part-no.: 24417127 / catalogue-no.: 11 90 370
                    (picture I, 2) on both instrument panel fixing points (picture I, 1).
                    Note: Grease the foam strips after installation with silicon grease
                    part-no.: 90510259 / catalogue-no.: 19 48 605.

                        Trist seems to have had a similar problem to yours (and mine!) but hasnt found a solution either. Mine is exactly the same, if you go over a bump or if the car vibrates for any reason, and especially around 2000RPM the clocks rattle like a mofo. If I press down on them it stops straight away hehe. I read on here someone took it to VX for the same problem and they glued something which stopped it. Might try that tbh :/ bit of superglue to hold it down a bit more would solve it probably. Only seems to happen when its cold I think :S So maybe the plaster expanding/shrinking with the temperature. It totally disapeared for a good week or so but has just come back with vengeance

                            Nah, not a recall, it's a field remedy. It's not a safety issue so it's just done as and when people complain about it.
