Just started to notice a noise from inside the dash whenever I travel on a bumpy road. It is silent at a standstill. Wondering if anyone else has same problem or any suggestions?

My plastic between the dash and the windshield (about 3 inches wide) sometimes makes a noise. Put your hand on it to see if it might be what rattles.

Most common rattle in the doors is the emergency release cable best way to find a rattle is to bang on the door panel hard enough to make it rattle but not hard enough to dent the door panel . Also some of the CIU rattle behind the glove box find someone to drive while you listen going over speed bumps .

@Harleyguy, what's the fix for the emergency release cable rattle? I've heard it at times. Turning up the radio works, but is not the perfect solution.

All i do is remove the door panel and put some insulation around the cable even changing the way it's positioned may cause a rattle you would be surprised what you would find in some doors to stop rattles and that's on all cars . The door panel comes off very easy just need to be careful pulling it away from the sheet metal the clips that hold the panel in sometimes break

There are 2 screws holding the panel on as well, right in the middle, behind the little plastic pop-out panel.

I have another possible fix. Stop driving on bumpy roads. I did it and realized that I didn't spill as much beer out of my travel mug!

My Karma has a rattle or buzzing sound coming from the dash when I go above 50 MPH. I have mentioned it to the dealer, but it was never fixed. At first I thought is was wind noise from the windshield wipers, but it seems now to be coming from inside the dash. Anyone else have this problem?

No rattles or shakes for my Karma, thank goodness. But Lormax don't get too busy. The idea of taking off a door panel is well beyond my idea of fun. And thanks to Weird for endorsing your work!

Rattles are the hardest thing to fix . First off you need two people one to drive the other to listen . Find a road that you can duplicate the rattle look for a side street or a parking lot with speed bumps . The trouble with a rattle it may sound like its coming from one area but its actually coming from a totally different place .

I suggest listen to the glove box door which is a very common area also the area at the bottom of the glove just behind the pivot point of the lid .

I had a customer insisting they had a rattle from the dash board I heard the rattle when I removed the Sun Pass from the windshield the noise was gone she felt a little stupid because she screaming at me what a piece of crap the car is

I definitely agree with Harley, rattles are the worst. Sound travels inside a car cabin. I can be searching for a noise in one area and it's nowhere near it. Wind noises are probably the 2nd worst, though thankfully they are pretty easy to get rid of on the Karma.

I think I have the same rattle in the dash - it is not coming from the front door. It doesn't stop when you put your hand between the dash and the windshield, and is inside of the dash. It is also getting worse, and now on normal roads it rattles as well. Starting to annoy me pretty good :). If anyone has experienced or fixed it let me know - the nearest New Fisker dealership is >1000 miles away :)

I would be remiss if I did not suggest the classic Click and Clack solution to rattles and odd noises, which is to turn up the radio until you don't hear them any more. :)
