Rattle!

I have a rattle in the dash...and before I go Schwartzenager on it I thought I would ask the experts! Appears to be coming just below the front window vents and above the Tach. I can't get a good view down the vents to see if it is a loose coin or something in the vent itself. Sounds like metal on plastic...and occurs on rough road surfaces. Any ideas on how to proceed?

If you pull the vent out you can get a pretty good look behind there. It might be one of the clips that hold the trim piece on.

Did you get your Strong Struts installed? I noticed some rattling in the engine bay area after installation of mine. They are mailing me additional washers and are fairly confident it will help.

Funny you ask...the rattle did start after I stalled the struts but I ended up using the OEM flange nuts on my studs and they are tite. Also, this rattle is sharp and I can't imagine the sound thru the firewall would be that sharp. I will check tonight!
