    Default rattle

    I have a rattle in my dashboard. I have had two steering column sheeves put on and had the inner tie rod ends replaced. Does anyone have this problem or had this problem? About to lose my mind......

    Unfortunately, saw this post the first time around and I personally have no advice for you other than trying to diagnose the rattle yourself - either by having someone driving while you look around and/or taking the larger pieces of dash out and driving around with it like that so you can spot where the rattle is yourself.

    With the information you give it limits the amount of help anyone can give you. It might help to know when the rattle occurs, what it sounds like, what you've looked at already, what you might think it is, where it seems to be coming from, etc etc.

    You just resurrected a thread that hasn't been active for slightly more than 4 years -- and replied to it as if it were current. May I ask why?
