Rattle - driverís side - intermittent

Intermittent rattle has developed in last 24 hrs. Sounds like it is behind driver front dash. Started again this morning after 3 miles and was intermittent. Thoughts?

Probably a spring clip come loose. You need to narrow down where from.

Yes could be. They are held on by two torx bolts at the bottom and it is connected to a metal rail. If they are done up too tight the airbag pulls down slightly at the top as it is just held in by thin plastic at the top. Could be loose and rattling on the rail.

Might be worth having a feel round there. Be careful though if you end up removing it the airbag wire is really short. Disconnect the Earth terminal on the battery first.
