2013 Corolla Ascent Sport - Rattle noises in dashboard?
I am hoping to learn if any other members are experiencing similar dashboard rattle/squeak noises in the 2013 TOYOTA COROLLA ZRE182R ASCENT SPORT S-CVT. I purchased this car in Feb 2013, brand new here in Australia.
A rattle began to develop around the dashboard area. At first, it sounded like a rattle on the left side of the dash near the aircon vent. It took two visits to the dealership service center to repair the rattle.
Within a week of the second visit, the rattle came back - this time in two places, and much worse. The second rattle noise appears to be coming from behind the wheel. Hard to describe the sound, it's more like a high pitched squeaking rather than a dull rattle.
To date I have had wires/brackets either replaced and/or tightened, and also foam applied in numerous places. Still, the rattle persists.
Has anyone experienced this with their new Corolla's?
