Q: Car vibrates on the right passenger side on 2002 Ford Escort

Just bought a 2002 Ford Escort 4 door 80,000 miles. It test drove nicely and the seller's mechanic verified that the car has been excellently taken care of. When I drove it a little while ago, I noticed that the car vibrates a bit on the front passenger side close to the motor. When the glove compartment was not shut tightly enough, I could see the compartment door moving a lot and it was vibrating so loud. Then I shut it harder and it was better but there was still a bit of vibration on the front right side of the car. My landlord looked under the hood and noticed that this type of car has a lot of things compacted on that side. Is this because there is a lot of components on that side of the motor? Should I just get used to more action on that side? Otherwise it seems like a nice car. Appreciate any advice you have, again I just bought this car and really hoping it will be ok.

Thank you. I will look into that. Do you have any ballpark figure on what having that fixed would cost?
