Model Y passenger side dash rattle and rubbing noise

Has anyone had a dash rattle/rub that they've successfully resolved on their own? I've had these noises literally from day 1 when I'm driving over uneven roads between 15-30 mph. I've already brought it into Tesla service twice and each time they said they fixed it. The problem is that roads nearby the service center are pretty smooth so its not until i get home that I realize its not been fixed and I'm tired of dealing with them. Anyone share their experiences on how, if, they've been able to fix this kind of rattle/rub? Its only passenger side and I can actually recreate the sound but pushing on the dash with my hand (videos). TIA!

Ended up pulling off the dash and laying down a ton of foam. Took about 15 minutes total, easy to remove and re-install and its now completely rattle/rub free.

Mine was off and on, what i noticed was it wasn't noticeable when cold but once the temperature started warming up, the rubbing noise came back. The foam took care of it regardless of the temperature.

Mine is just the opposite as the cracking noises from the dash get worse as it gets colder. Can you post a link to the foam tape that you used, as I plan on doing this ASAP?
