2018 First Rattle!!!

Well, as the title says, I'm loving my new Orange Fury GT minus the MIND NUMBING "rattle". It seems like it's coming from the center of the defroster near the windshield. While watching some videos online, I was directed to under the hood where there is a TON of ill-fitting plastic covers and was hoping this was the cause. After taping some of the major areas down, I was disappointed to still hear the "rattle". It actually sounds like a rotating sound or flutter that gets worse with speed which makes me think I'm onto something or worse, it's something in one of the vents.


Anyway, it's a longshot but was hoping that someone else had a similar problem AND more importantly was able to solve it (not wanting to sound like a jerk). Last LAST resort is to have the dealer rip apart the dash on a car that has less than 900 miles on it. I know it's a case of what's more important to me but I think a large amount of people here will understand.


Peace!

There's actually a common rattle on the S550s that sounds like it's coming from the dash at eye level but it's actually coming from a box and bracket under the dash and attached to the kick panel. My 17 does it and it sounds like it's coming from the dash directly in front of me.

I haven't noticed any rattles like that on my '18 just yet. Hope it stays that way.
