Definitely not. I've held onto it to make sure. This is kind of a "solid" rattle (whatever that is!). Sounds like it is in front of me but not necessarily close.sorry for basic question but are you sure it is not the FOB hitting the column? I put sticky foam around the area my FOB hits. Solved the problem.
I had a similar rattle in my 04X. It was driving me crazy. I took off surround from the instrument panel. Stuffed it with cotton batting and now I can barely hear the turn signals. Still didn't fix the rattle.didn't really find any relating to the rattle seeming to come from the steering column. Anyone with that rattle? thank You!
