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?

had similar issue from description in my 69 Ford while the sealant was curing from the new windshield... maybe your windshield needs to be removed and replaced?

Hello JasonOConnor, I am experiencing the same problem in my 2013 TOYOTA COROLLA ZRE182R ASCENT. There is a soft rattle coming from the aircon vent on the passesnger side. Sometimes I hear a light rattle from behind the steering wheel, but Ithink I have tracked it down to the plasctic window that covers the tacho.
I have enquired about this rattles at the dealer and they said they are "normal" in these cars.
Did you manage to have yours fixed?
