Angry Metal vibration noise from driver side speaker

Hi everyone,

I've been through all the threads about dash noise and i know this might be part of the problem but i can't seem to fix it. I have this horrible noise that comes and goes from the drivers side speaker area. its not the sound coming from the speaker but more of a metal on metal vibration that drives me nuts. i've placed more felt in there than i care to remember. Anyone had this issue and been able to fix it? Thanks for any input

It is a noise that comes up because of driving? Or because of the music playing? Did you try putting felt on the back of the speaker magnet, in case it's rubbing somewhere?

Well its a non ML system so the speaker is just a single small tweeter and the bottom doesn't touch anything so i don't think the felt or double sided tape on the bottom would do anything. Drives me crazy, thanks for the reply

No worries. This whole dash issue is a big upset for me.

Have you looked into trimming the windshield retaining clips? There's a TSB on that I think.

So are you saying that this is coming from the dash. If so, you can start eliminating things and I hope it helps you solve your problem. Pull off the speaker grill and see if that helps. Then check to see if the two bolts holding the speaker in are tight. If not, tighten them or remove the speaker assembly to see if it is the speaker or the dash.

Ok so i removed the grill and the speaker is kinda suspended by 2 metal posts. i put some rub insulation on the two posts and put the grill back on. So far so good, ill report back in a couple days to see if this solved the issue.

so the noise i back and the rubber insulation on the two metal posts holding the tweeter in place didn't work. i don't think adding any to the back of the speaker will help since this is a non ml system and the speaker is suspended and doesn't touch anything on the bottom. any other clues?
