    My Sept 2016 S has a rattle on the top of the dash near the driver that is getting worse. It used to just rattle when it was cold, now it does it when warm too.

    I can tap the top of the dash and make it rattle, it sounds like it's a clip that holds the top of the dash to the rest of the instrument panel.

    Has anyone has any success with getting the clips replaced or tightened? I don't want to risk making it worse or making even more clips start to rattle.

    I had this, and the Service Center was able to separate the layers and put some padding in. Worked great for a while, now it's back in other places, and other things are rattling. It is dependent on the road surface. I guess I'll just keep finding the specific rattles so they can be described accurately for the tech.
