    The shelf (phone dock) for charging phones in the middle console rattles. I may just stick a penny between it and the wall of the console, but has anyone else had same problem and come up with a better way to fix it?

    I'm sure there's another thread for this. Can anyone point me there?

    I took mine to the service center for the creaking noise in the phone dock. Not sure what they did, but it's completely silent now.

    I had this issue too. The pads on the side wouldn’t be a solution for me. It was loudest with the phone in, and if I rotated the holder up so that the sides were sticking out of the console, it still rattled. Unless I put the dock down and pushed on it, that stopped it.

    Ironically, I made a DIY wireless charging pad to replace the rubber pad and what do you know, no rattles. I have no idea why but I am happy.
