Rattle from behind or inside the dashboard

Does anyone have this weird rattle coming from behind or inside of dashboard? It only happens whenever i am coming to a stop and does not happen every time making it really hard to bring it up to dealer. It stops when i am at completely stop or When driving. Any idea??

I do. It's pretty annoying. Its like a faint buzzing/rattling noise for me. I keep coins in the tray next to the cigarette lighter, so at first i thought it was the coins vibrating. But after ruling that out, I am fairly certain its something rattling in the center speaker behind the screen. Maybe the grille or something is a touch loose.

I pried out center speakers, cic head unit, trim, screen and checked everything and everything is tight. Just scheduled with dealer for a ride with tech. Hope it happens when i am there

I had a very similar issue. Eventually I figured out that I needed to add spacers to my exhaust bracket(awe switchpath) one pipe was hitting the brace. Happened after two years of nothing.
Mostly at cold starts and sometimes at a stop. Starting to become more frequent as time went on. Fixed and so far perfection.
