Dash rattle solved

First post... been lurking here for a while.

2016 Canyon SLT diesel, one month old. No issues whatsoever except for this.

I developed a rattle in the passenger side dash, sounded like something small rattling around the right dash speaker. Turns out it was a metal bracket just under the top lip inside the glove box. It's held on by 4 or 5 torx screws and most were only finger tight at best. Glad I found it before I had the dealer pull the dash apart.

So, just a quick note if anyone developes anything like this and where to possibly look.

Cheers,
Skidpuppy

Excellent, so I take it you dropped the glove box and tightened the screws and that helped resolve the rattle?

It happened to my truck too. 2015 Canyon SLT. I did not notice any vibrations, however when I poped the glove box out for something else I found one screw inside the glove box which drew my attention to the other three which were all loose.

Yep, just opened it and tightened the screws.

funny i found a glove box mounting screw in the bottom of the box. the other 3-4 screws were not totally tight and that one either fell out or was never installed

Thank you, Thank you!

4 - T15 torx screws at the top of the glovebox when you open it. For me the leftmost one was super loose, the remaining three were better but still needed to be tightened. Hoping this was the harmonic rattle with the sound system at certain frequencies (and it didn't take a loud volume). Prior to this quick fix I thought the rattle was coming from either the front right dash or the passenger door, we'll see. I'd rather fix stuff like this myself than let someone else who may not care about details take my interior apart.

Update: no more rattle

Good job OP, you are doing God's work, son. Mine isn't rattling (yet), but I'll give'm a tighten this weekend just to head it off.

Just checked mine. Two were snug. Two were barely seated. All are tight now. Thanks Skidpuppy. Makes me wonder how many really important bolts aren't tightened.

I'll need some help with some identification of a screw. I currently have a large rattle behind my glove box. I opened the glove box and noticed that behind the glove box door there is supposed to be a screw of some sort connecting the dashboard to what looks like a metal bracket behind the glove box, except that it is currently missing. The metal bracket is connected to either a wiring cluster instrument (possible an ECM of sorts) OR it assists the ducting to the HVAC. I can't tell due to the cramped space behind the glove box, but it rattles over every bump in the road so you can imagine how annoying that is.

So if anyone can identify the missing screw, that would be helpful. Here is a couple of pictures of the missing screw. Its hard to tell what is needed with the cramped space. You will see that there is a shiny metal bracket with a triangle shaped metal backing is where the screw is missing.

Would it go away once you start driving? I have a noise coming from the passenger side of the truck as well, but once I start driving it goes away. In park or stopped at a light it'll come back. Sounds more like a ticking sound. Truck has around 900 miles currently.

I have a metal rattle coming intermittently from the left side on my colorado, thought might be speaker cover grill but nope. Wonder what else could be moving around back there.

No kidding, I've found some dash screws loose too. Do those line workers at GM get liquor breaks or something? (or if not, should they?)

I could imagine that every fastener is installed so it can be SEEN by the QC people but, how tight are they? How would anyone really know?

my window sticker said "some assembly required" in fine print. At least the battery was included right?

So no luck from anyone as to the screw size? I really do not want to take it to the dealership so that they can have it for a week to fix one screw.
