Occasional Rattle - Dealer for Service or No?

I have a KC SE with RF sound. There is a rattle coming from the dash that isn't horrible, but I absolutely hate rattles. The rattle isn't always there, which drives me even more nuts. It tends to do it at highway speeds over concrete roads that a bumpy due to expansion joints most often. It sounds like it's coming from dead center of the dash, around the center speaker. Of course, rattles often sound like they're coming from somewhere other than where they are...

I have to take my Titan in to have the passenger seatbelt looked at anyway. It locks WAY too easily and drives my girlfriend nuts. I want them to fix my rattle, but I know from personal experience what a PITA it is to find a rattle, especially ones that are occasional, and they'll probably just say they can't reproduce the noise. Any opinions? Has anyone else had the rattle and had it successfully stopped?

Oh, and my dash sqeaks occasionally, too. Apparently the plastic around the gauge cluster isn't seated perfectly. I'm definitely mentioning that to the dealer. I read someone else on here heard the same squeak, smacked the dash twice, and hasn't heard it again. I can temporarily stop the squeak by pushing on the plastic surround, too, but it comes back...

Rattles? hmmm

When I first got my Titan I had some whacky dash rattles and squeaks also. I found that most of it was coming from the defroster vent panel that covers the length of the dash just next to the windsheild. I put some felt pads between the panel and the windsheild insulation and made a small rubber shim for the instrument cluster. Noises gone. I actually noticed the defroster vent panel was touching the windshield which made the rattle resonate throughout the panel. Now I only get rattles when on dirt roads. You might want to look there.
So I think I may have the same problem I am going to visit the dealer this weekend Mine are there at all times so it should not be to hard to locate and fix them. But hey thanks for the tip.

Silverlust :cheers:
