dashboard noise

The sounds comes from the dashboard. According the guys at the Ford store,
they say its coming from the passenger side of the dashboard. It's hard to
describe the sound. Sometimes it sounds like a gurgle or like a plasticy
sound. Doesn't sound metallic and I don't hear it when i'm in Park.
Usually only heard during slow drives around the city. Apparently the guys
at the Ford store have been getting alot of calls about this. Unfortunately
i just put my car away....so..they will have to fix it...if they can..next
spring.

Re: dashboard noise

On my 05 stang the sound seemed like it was coming from the dash. Kind of
like a crackling sound. After a close listen I found that it is actually
coming from the stick shifter in 1st and 3rd gears. At this point I think
that it is the leather boot because as soon as I grab the boot the sound
goes away.

Re: dashboard noise

My 98 Cobra had a sound that was slightly like a leaf in the heater fan that
has gone down through the defroster vent.
After several years of it making this sound, (when the fan was on high) it
finally burped out a piece of foam rubber insulation. It spit out small
chunks for quite some time.
Last year, the 99 F250 did the same thing and it still spits out little
crumbs of foam now and then.

It is a thin, lightweight foam rubber material that I believe is used to
prevent air leaks and rattles in the system. I think it overlaps in there
somewhere where it shouldn't and flaps around when the air is moving making
a rattling kind of sound.

I never tore it apart to find it, too much of a nightmare.

I never got the pleasure of the one under the shift boot.
