did this today - worked like a charm.

now the passenger door started rattling 2x worse than the damned center speaker ever did. i've pressed and banged on everything - nothing. i think it's inside the door...

can't get speaker cover off

thanks for the dyi suggestion. I think I have the same problem. However I am having trouble taking off the speaker cover. Can you provide a bit more detail on that step? I'm afraid to cause damage. I am leasing the car and it's only 1 month old but I already noticed the buzzing/rattling noise from that area at high engine rpms.

Step 1: I found that the cover wasn't easy to just lift up. The speaker cover has 6 clips as shown in the pic below. I used a card to wedge under the speaker cover and to push each clip in. I started with the bottom left clip (closest to steering wheel) I found that I had to push the card into the clip in order to release it and simultaneously lift the cover with a little force. Eventually one at a time, I released all 6 clips. It could be that you can just lift up the cover with pressure but it didn't feel to me as if it would work without breaking the cover



Step 2: Once I lifted the cover off I used felt tape to cover the plastic tab on the top of the speaker cover as shown in the picture below:


Step 3: I then covered those two plastic contact points by the speaker on the sides of where the plastic tab from the speaker cover connects to pictured below:


I then popped the speaker cover back in and now the rattle has gone away. I tested it in Sport+ mode under heavy acceleration and when raising the volume of the stereo under different frequencies.

This is a link to the felt tape I used:

Hi, thanks for the detailed solution. However, Iím not able to get the cover off. Can you post more detail as to how you removed it?
