    I had a loose visor bracket, fixed that. I also had the wires sticking out from under the seal for the windshield, fixed that. Still have the rattle. I hear no noise/buzzing from the speaker, but will try to cardboard trick to rule that out.

    I have the "certain music note" vibration as well on my JLUR. Were you able to resolve the issue?

    I have an echo coming from the steering columns. I typically hear it when it's just people speaking on the radio. Deeper voices make the echo worse. Anyone else experience this?

    But what do the voices tell you?

    Hey man. Thanks for this. I got a panel off, playing something acoustic that always buzzed and putting pressure on this spot with my finger immediately stopped it. Now I just gotta get all the way in there to tape something like foam to it.

    Yes, this just started. 12k on the OD. And it seems to be coming fm the driver's side as well. Can isolate the buzzing by moving the sound slider around on the GUI. It appears to stop at highway speeds so am wondering if it is the cable under the windshield.

    I had the same thing going on with my 2018 JLU Sport S and it drove me nuts. I took it to the dealer and even after having a tech and GM take a ride with me to hear what I was hearing they also couldn’t figure it out where the rattle noise was coming from, but we’re convinced that it was from the drivers side dash/ instrument cluster area. Fast forward to weeks after that, I needed to flip down my windshield visor due to sun glare and wouldn’t you know it... the rattle sound STOPPED! I then flipped it back up, and the rattle sound returned. I flipped it back down and it stopped. So now, when it rattles, I just flip it down. Sound simple crazy, but give it a shot. I also saw a thread on this exact issue a while back after I figured it out and with the same conclusion. I think some folks resorted to installing round felt pads on their visors. Hope it helps.

    Nice find, but you shouldn't have to do that. I did lower the windshield for my issue. Interesting the amount of debris that collects in that area. IF Jeep ever investigates the noisy windshield am betting this is there the problem will be found as it seems to me, no aero guy, that a lot of air can get in this space, then is forced to the sides of the vehicle, then possibly up the side channels of the windshield where it escapes, hence why we hear it in the upper corners of the jeep. Need a wind tunnel and some smoke to prove this.

    Have flipped my visor up and down many times, also unclipped and clipped it. Moved my remotes around too. Vibe continues.

    Mine rattles like crazy. I guess I’ll try all these things. Hopefully one of them works :)

    I am having the same issue with a rattle in the drivers side dash on my 2018 JL Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara that is extremely annoying. I am also having a squeaking sound that is coming from the back window or back door that I have had checked out 4 or 5 times by the dealership. Still have the squeak. This issue has not been resolved and they just try to put tape on the top of the back door every time I take my Jeep to the dealership. Finally I keep getting the blue screen on the back up camera about once a month and when that happens my radio starts cutting in and out. I have to turn the ignition off and leave the Jeep off for about 30 minutes and that fixes the issue with the radio and backup camera.
