iI have had my new P3D for week now have noticed an annoying rattle from somewhere in my dash, center console or glove box. It seems to be getting worse. Has anyone else had this issue? At first it would happen at certain temperatures but now it it has it all the time.

Record the sound. Also, it helps to have a passenger try to ID the location while you drive.

I had a rattle/buzz in mine too. Turns out it was my iPhone charging cord hitting something. Took one item at a time out of the console, glove compartment and figured it out.

When I first got the car I had a super annoying squeak/rattle. Turns out is was the phone tray. The back of it was rubbing and causing the squeaking noise. I put some felt sticky pads behind there and that got rid of the squeak.

The one squeaking sound seems to be coming from the fake wood trim along the dash. It almost seems loose. The other rattle squeak is coming from under the center counsel. Hopefully the service department fixes it when I take it in next week.
