When it rattle again try squeezing the air ducts at the windscreen to see it this helps.

I took my dash apart to no avail until I tried this on the off chance. I have wedged them tight and been rattle free for 3 years.

Thank you for your answer, Scotty.
I suppose those are somewhere under the bonnet? Sorry for pushing my luck, but do you have a photo to see what you are referring to?
Thank you.

My car seems to have a rattle from around the glovebox area. I only notice it if the music's off. My dashcam power lead runs through the glovebox though, so I've assumed it's that. I'll have to take it out and try it.
This is the reason that all retrofitted cables should be ziptied down very good, either to existing wiring harness or some other place.

Better to use 2 zipties to much, than one to few. :lol: :lol:

I think Astra J has a different format there, It doesn't seem to have a cover. I tried to put my fingers inside and keep the ducts pressed, but it keeps making that noise. I still hear it from somewhere behind the left air vent.

Picked up my 11 month Astra all ok. Next morning started it heard a rumbling noise behind the dash. Back to dealer and tech advised selector fork issue. Sorted under warranty. All fine.

I have more of an annoying clicking sound in my Astra K dash. Approximately left of centre of the dash. Does it when you turn and on bumps.

I have problem with vent cover trim on dashboard.
On drivers side it wont stay in place/clip in. No matter what i try. Any solution. Allready tried with replacement part. Its the same.
Which side goes in first? Side facing driver or side facing windshield?
I tried to press in hard but it just wont clip in place. What should i do?
Thanks.

Check the vent ducting as it might be catching.
