Another Rattle !

Can anyone help ?

An annoying rattle has appeared...seemingly right behind and slightly above the speedometer & rev counter.

It rattles badly on start up and at first I thought it was in the engine bay but I checked and it's not.

Any one any ideas......I know the dashboard vents do this but this a more internal noise ?

I have kind of the same thing going . a guy i bought the car from said it could be rattling due to cold and dash shrinking. he said he would turn on the heater and it goes away.. but i heated it up and the rattling noise wont go away. its real annoying, coming from the middle somewhere closer to the windscreen i think where the vents are for the windscreen..

Mine just started a very similar rattle about 2 weeks ago! I intend taking of the centra dash air vent to see if its something in there.

My GT sounds like the dash is about to fall out.

That'll be the coilovers then, ouch.

Anyone got any spare gripfill??
