Rattle behind glove box?
 
About a month ago I started getting a rattle behind my glove box or just to the left of it as best as I can tell. It only happens when there are significant vibrations at wide open throttle. It sounds like maybe wires bumping into each other or off of plastic. Has anyone else had this problem and can help me pinpoint where it's coming from before I start putting foam all over everything?

IIRC, there was a problem with some sealant coming loose and making a rattling noise. But my memory ain't what it used to be.

Should be at least one thread on the subject. Instead of using the site's search function, I suggest going to any major search engine and adding "site:the370z.com" to your search string. Eg, "duct rattle site:the370z.com".


Edit:
As far as pinpointing the source, have someone ride along with a short piece of flexible tubing (garden hose works well). One end of the tubing to passenger's ear while they move the other end around to locate the source of the sound.

Good tip about searching this site differently. I almost forgot about that. What some thought was loose sealant turned out to be someone's heat shielding on their exhaust but I don't think that's my issue.

Something may be loose in the battery compartment?

Was the cabin filter changed not long ago?
