Dash Rattle

I have this annoying dash rattle, sounds like it's coming from the area around the radio. With all the plastic I'm sure they all do it, any help as to where it's coming from would be a big help.
Thanks...

Very common in Jeeps and even worse in cold weather unfortunately. Hopefully Fiat will help this in future Jeeps

My 2010 does the same. I can apply pressure to the area around the radio console and stop it, but I cannot drive along doing that. My main problem was a vibrating buzz from the switches along the bottom of the dash, in the center, where the emergency switch is located. I wedged a piece of black rubber under the pannel which is not noticeable and stopped that noise.

I just need to figure out where I put the rubber or some velcro to wedge it to stop.

Mine does it too. If I press on it right at the top where the little storage bin starts I can get it to stop. It only seems to do it on rough roads, or in winter.

In summer I have something in the driver side B pillar that clunks when I go around a corner. No idea what that is. Dealer claimed that it didn't do it for them. I think they just couldn't find it or didn't feel like checking.

Here is what I did with my aftermarket radio kit I covered it any where possible in the female side of velcro, also I pulled the HVAC vent under the dash down and could here it rattling so i put velcro on that as well to keep it from rattling. Also its not shown in the pics but where the screws mount to the dash to hold the radio in I covered those holes and then cut a slit so the screw could go through to deaden any rattle that may occur tried it today and didn't hear anything so we shall see how it holds up!
