Good idea, I'll see what I can do about that

So I finally got fed up with my steering column cover rattling like crazy. I followed https://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...&postcount=231 and now its quiet. I just removed the top part, put felt tape into the suggested areas and put a bit of silicone grease on the sides of the panel that touch the outsides of the lower panel (i.e. the seam)

I'm not sure if this fix has made the rounds yet, but I had a creak from the A/C controls when going over uneven pavement (i.e. basically every road I drive on).

1. Start by removing the center dash trim piece by grasping from the top with your fingertips where the edge meets the dash and pulling gently toward the rear of the car. It will slowly slide back and you can dislodge the 2-3 brass prongs on the far right below the air vent with your fingers. They just pop out. There is a wiring harness connecting the temperature dial and hazard light button, but you need not disconnect them for this.

2. Using a small Torx bit (sorry, don't know the exact size, but am guessing T25), remove the two upper screws holding the A/C controls in place. They're normally hidden by the dash trim. Put the screws in the cupholder for safekeeping. The trim can slide back into the dash for now.

3. Using a small flathead screwdriver and a rag, gently pry down the trim below the A/C controls by inserting the screwdriver just below the A/C control bezel. The rag is to protect the bezel from scratches. The trim is just soft plastic and should easily pop free. A wire harness may be tucked into this panel depending on your model year, but it easily unhooks. The two bottom screws for the A/C controls should now be visible. Remove them and place them in the cupholder. All four screws are the same size.

4. On the back of the A/C controls, use adhesive felt to pad all four mounting points where the screws go through (it prevents the A/C controls from squeaking against the mounts). I also added some to the left and right side of the A/C control bezel because I think the integrated ambient light strip might have been a little loose. All adhesive felt is highlighted red.



4a. On the HK radio, there are two plastic pegs that stick out and go into holes in the AC controls to allow it to hang during mounting. Put adhesive felt on the tips of these pegs (highlighted red).



5. Installation is the reverse of the removal. Hopefully now the car can flex a little without causing any more creaking.

On mine, if I tap the center speaker grill I hear the rattle behind the instrument panel to the right (facing out the windshield) of the HUD.

Is there any fix for the front centre console, I'm getting rattles from the wireless charging dock. Any guides on how to get it open? Have a feeling its the cables underneath.

I’ve had a terrible rattle from the rear seat area for a while now and I finally tore apart the rear shelf area to find it. Everything comes apart surprisingly easily and everything is just begging for some adhesive felt before it goes back together.

Following these instructions, I took the rear shelf and both c-pillar trim panels off:

https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/f...blind/HvqjwQoB

On the passenger c-pillar is a bracket for the side curtain airbags. The bracket is secured with several large rivets with heads about the size of a dime. One of the rivets was not sufficiently tight and allowed the bracket to rattle against the body.



Normally I would drill the rivet out and shoot a new one, but these were HUGE and I was concerned a piece might fall inside the c-pillar in an unrecoverable area and rattle forever. I tightened up the fit of the bracket by sliding small pieces of a breakable razor blade under the rivet head and sealing them in place with RTV. I also jammed a piece of a towel behind the bracket to make it fit really tight. Once the c-pillar is installed, no one will ever be the wiser.

I also installed adhesive felt in the following areas:

- The base of each c-pillar trim where it meets the rear shelf

- The three clips on each c-pillar trim to tighten them in their mounts

- The rear shelf support all the way at the back. The plastic shelf just sits on a series of “humps” and each of these just needed a 1” piece across the peak.

- There are wiring harnesses for a few control modules under the rear shelf and they are retained by plastic clips that loosely fit inside a metal bracket. Adhesive felt tightened that up.

- The speaker grilles got adhesive felt all the way around the edges and now they fit much tighter. The passenger one used to have a tiny rattle, but no longer.

- The rear seat bolsters are held in place with two large copper lugs at the base, both of which slide into metal holes and may rattle. Wrap the lugs with adhesive felt and install it.

After all of this, I can bang on almost anything in the rear shelf area and it sounds completely solid. It’s SO much better than before. I’m looking forward to my test drive on the way home from work tomorrow to see if it stays quiet.

Oh, and FWIW, I’ve used almost 40 feet of adhesive felt on the interior of my car.

Hey guys, Awesome thread and good write up. My dealer could not find rattles, and apparently the fixed three of them (just on paper) ! Anyways, found Rattles from Doom light but it is really hard to take off that inner doom light out, feel like I have to use metal screw driver (which I am afraid of using!). Would any good folks suggest any tricks? Thank you !

I just did mine today. You have to use your fingers and car panel tools. Something like this

Wedge some dense rubber foam (mine was from an obd port Bluetooth dongle packaging) on each side. After some trial and error on how large to cut the foam - make it snug - this solved all rattles coming from center console.

After a recent road trip on some very coarse road surfaces, my console and air vent trim was buzzing like crazy

I know my way around fixing these issues, having pulled everything waist height out of my evo x and sound deadening all the trim to reduce the resonance

For the f80 I applied focal bam to the air vent surrounds and more importantly the plastic that is plasti-welded to the carbon, that's where the buzzing is coming from. Adding sound deadening adds weight to it which reduces the resonance. Also added some felt tape over the clips for a tighter grip and stop that plastic vibrating within their clip holders

Did same for all the centre console trim (didn't take pics)

Also used opportunity to polish the carbon

Centre console rattle

Hi

I have a rattle from my centre console on my 2015 f80. It's driving me mad and I'm hoping to find a solution. I have managed to isolate it to the leather part next to the cup holders, highlighted below, the noise stops when pressure is applied to the side of the trim.



any advice greatly appreciated.

Thanks
David

Gummi Phlege to seal #1 quieted down my interior significantly! I was making the mistake of applying the gummi to seal #2 and it did nothing to quiet it down (tho my rubber seals look fantastic now ). Thanks for the tips!
