weird dash rattle

goodmorning my friends. i hoped this morning would be a good one but i was very irritated. there is a strange inside the dash rattle that is very sensitive.i mean if i step up a cigarette there it goes. it sounds inside the speedometer.like a little plastic out of place and hitting on metal.what could it be?

The plastic see through instrument cover, try holding it at the bottom when it rattles, stopped mine ages ago with a piece of blue tac (and no you cant see it)

Mine does the same, like ffoxy says, giving it a push at the bottom should stop it.

lol when I bought my car and started tidying things up. I ended up pulling of so much blue tac I had a ball bigger than a tennis ball, no joke. I even found a bit in the engine bay last week.

Ive fixed every little rattle my car had now its one heavy thud instead of a chorus of rattles

Sorry different car pal. plus Bravos are better

I just had loose bolts behind my dash with washers rattling on the bolts, but as I say my car is a different one.
