Default Dash noise

2002 Camry XLE If any one has any idea, of a crackling sound somewhere in
the centre of the console. I know its impossible to pin point but I am
asking in the off chance some one has experienced the same problem and
managed to resolve it.

Thanx

Yes there are numerous complaints about rattles in dashboards. You might
try taping down the outside black trim below the windshield wipers and see
if that stops it. It may sound like the dash but actually be the clicking
of the trim on the windshield. If tape works temporarily then try silicone
caulk as a permanent solution. Otherwise you will have to try felt between
the cheap pieces of the poorly designed dash.

I've seen a couple of guys fixing this noise at dealer I work at. Newer
camrys and solaras, I think. Not sure if there's a TSB out or not, but if
its under the 3/36, take it in and have em fix it.

Just belt the offending area with your fist a few times,...the noise will
change to a more tolerable grunt as the pieces of offending plastic break
off.......well that's how I'm tempted to 'fix' the rubbish plastic interiors
of today.

I've seen ordinary plastic insulating tape wrapped around the edge of one of
the two surfaces rubbing together, plus the use of stick-on foam-rubber
(made for quieting doors which slam) which seems to work as well..

Unfortunately those fixes do not last.

i took my car to the shop for this already, but the noise doesn't come
consistantly, so they couldn't fix it. Does anybody know how to remove
the stereo plastic cover off?
