Right Side Dash Rattle

2011 Rubi. I've got one hell of an annoying rattle that I have not yet been able to track down. It sounds like it is coming from the right side dash just behind and to the right of the glove box. I have had the glove box out and found nothing loose behind it, been in the engine bay and found nothing loose, been underneath and found nothing loose. My fender liner was a bit loose so I secured that and the rattle is still there. Also did a search on here but didn't find anything. The only thing I can think of is it is something within that right speaker box but I cant figure out how to get in there without removing the dash. Any help or experience with this is appreciated.

I too thought I had a rattle in the right side of the dash.... turned out that it was my gas tank rubbing under neither the vehicle.. (stock skid plate took a hit and pushed the tank upward)..

Could that be your issue?

I had a mysterious rattle like that and it was the windshield fasteners forward of the passenger mirror. I removed the glove box and did test drives and everything till I found it. Worth checking out, good luck.

Check the bolts that secure the trim where the A pillar meets the roll cage. Mine were loose and caused a very annoying rattle.

I also have a 2011 Rubi with the same rattle. Mine seemed to start after I installed a snorkel. It sounds almost like there is loose change in the glovebox, which there isn't. Going to also check those things mentioned...

2011 Rubi here too with an annoying inner dash rattle also. I look crazy trying to pin point it while driving, holding things and hitting things to try and stop it... It feels like an endless search...
