Re: Removing dash facia on BA
I've done some listening and fiddling without ripping the whole thing out. Turns out its not in teh dash, its just under the silver area of the Auto selector. the hint was the other day when it wouldnt go inot park. i reversed back a bit there was the "Sliding rattle" and it would go into park. whatever is down there occasionally blocks the lever... yeh great!
I popped the surround of the auto selector (it just lifts off) and listened while i was driving and it was definitely coming from down there , i could even feel the vibration thru my fingertips.
Interestingly theres a production sticker on the console panel marked "Barra Forte"
Gotta say my dash a has had a number of rattles since day 1 ( its nearly 7 months and 28,000km). and the dealer has failed to fix them, in fact they made them worse.
I think I have two choices, live with them or fix them myself.
