Irritating noise from passenger side dashboard?
I've got a ticking type rattle that is driving me nuts. BMW can't find it in 2 tries. It is defininately in the passenger side dash area but has not been located. I've emptied the glove box and checked the fuse area. I can only reproduce it on a road where they put patches over potholes in the right birm and go 40-50 mph. As the passenger side goes over the bumps I get the buzzing ticking sound. Where the patch is rough and continues for some distance, it is really annoying. Large bumps don't cause it, only small continuous disturbances.
