Does anyone have any tips on how to solve an irritating rattle I have at my Satria Neo's lower dashboard area? Its located at the lower half of the dashboard immediately to the right of the ignition slot. Seem like there is a metal component immediately behind the plastic & it rattles like hell non-stop. My car is only 2 mths old!!! I have tried using heavy duty scotch tape but the rattle is still there. I am at a loss, PE says they have to dismantle the whole dash to solve it!

dont touch the dashboard....car's still under warranty. if u open n damage the clips, u wotn be able to claim or if anything happens, they'll say it was tempered with. send the car back to the SC as Danz said. dont leave till the rattling goes away and watch them doing it. dont turn yr back on them or they might stuff some old towels in the dash cavity to get rid of the noise(just an assumption ya)
