I have a noticable rattle coming from the centre console which appears to be either around the cupholder area, or the CD player area. It is not a squeak, it is a 'full on', 'plasticky' rattle sound. Any ideas? :(

hi xkphillips have not come across this before but there are many things in that area which could cause that noise.It will really need to be diagnosed at a dealer. Go out with someone to show them the noise and it will be hopefully sorted.

hmmm, I wondering if it's anything like the one I had: slightly grinding, clicky noise that got louder and slower when decelerating and braking?

After a week of being told by the Main Stealer that they couldn't hear anything or that it had been fixed :roll: it turned out to be the handbrake release cable rubbing on the propshaft.

I had a noise from underneath the car in the same area. Although at first I thought it was the console. I could "play" with the noise at certain revs and particularly when under load. Turned out to be the exhaust heat shield not being bolted on correctly. Sorted.
