Question Answered: I have this rattling noise behind the dashboard
December 16, 2009, 08:40 AM
I bought my Malibu Maxx used as well - I had the same Rattle - that was an unsolved mystery for anyone that I showed it too. I did my own investigating and it is the cowel. (This is the area right below the windshield wipers). This plastic was not sealing/sitting right and vibrates and makes tremendous noise. I took it to the dealer but I am not willing to pay $300 + to get it fixed so like you the loud music kinda drains it out. :o)

This car has excellent handling in curves. Has great pick up and go speed as well. The only issue I have is with the Cowel. It vibrates constantly and is too expensive to just make it a quick fix.
