    Have Rattling Noise, Getting New Glove Box Assy

    So my 2011+ developed a pretty frequent rattle that consistently occured at highway speeds. It sounds like it was coming from somewhere around the passenger side dash area. There is another thread where several people talked about a similar issue, but they all located the culprit as the map lights. After a lot of experimenting pushing around the light, that didn't seem to be the issue for me.

    I took the car to the dealership this morning and they are saying it is the glove box assembly and are ordering me a new one under warranty. It seems very likely that they are correct in identifying the problem as it sounds like the rattle is coming from the dash/glovebox area and it does sound like a plastic rattle...not like something mechanical the under the hood. However I have tried pressing/bracing various areas of the glovebox and could not conclusively determine that the glovebox is creating the rattle, so I'm still open to the possibility that the Kia tech was not correct.

    I will come back and update this thread once the new glove box assembly is installed (dealership had to order the part). But just wanted to open this thread in case anyone else is having the same issue.

    I'm having a very similar problem, and It's driving me nuts. It doesn't sound like a normal rattle... it actually reminds me of this: YouTube - GEIGER COUNTER NOISE

    I have no idea where to start looking. I've tried pressing on everything within reach while riving, but I still can't locate the source. I never would have thought it might be the passenger door.

    Sometimes i have noise in my soul, which comes from 1 of 3 things, the map lights, the glovebox handle, or lastly the rear foam storage piece

    I get the same noise from time to time. I just turn the radio up. It only happens on the highway and I always have the stereo cranked up anyways. Rattles and squeeks are harder to find than water leaks and I can't be bothered with all the dealer crap when it comes to small things like this. This is my 3rd new car and every one of them has had a sqeek, rattle or wind noise.

    When I was a trucker I had a few mechanical issues that I brought up to our company repair tech whenever they were servicing my rig.
    Their response was always the same.
    When it breaks we will fix it,other wise don't bother us.

    I've been retired now for close to 3 years and don't miss it at all.

    I know this is a little off topic,not related to the Soul,however it is something to do with rattles,and squeaking issues,turning up the volume as on the radio as Homer1 has posted is an easy fix.

    ^^Which company did you work for? My father-in-law worked for Swift, and they were always trying to find the cheapest fix possible. He had a Volvo, and over bumps the dash would vibrate and CDs would skip. That for some reason is what this thread reminds me of.
