Default High frequency rattle in right side of dash

The last couple months I've developed a high frequency rattle in the dash. Seems to be coming from the passenger side. I've tried holding onto every part I can reach while driving but nothing changes it. Seems to be forward towards the firewall. Starts up good once I hit about 45. Any ideas?

I've had a problem similar on a couple Volvos. It ended up being my glovebox...so, it may be the tabs, a screw loose, or he hinges themselves. Personally, just sat down one afternoon and started investigating, ended up putting a peice of cloth there to fix it. It could be something else though.

I had the same complaint then realized the weather strip above the windshield was loose. glued it back down. That took care of it.

Do you happen to have any pictures of the troubled spot in the weather strip?

Probably a broken dash mount. Common on those.

I thought my dash was rattling but it turned out to be the sun visor. I could have sworn the sound was from the dash.
