If you can get someone to secure the front with a hand while you're driving, and that doesn't fix it, and opening it does fix it, I'd guess there's a bit of wiring or whatever behind it that is making contact with the box itself. Worth a look.Anyone else have this problem? I've got about 4300 miles on my '10 Santy SE and the glove box rattles like crazy. And no, it's not something in the glove box that's rattling.
You guys REALLY need to get hooked up with www.hmaservice.comDoes the glove-box come out completely?
Mine's at the dealership due to the tranny problem and a really rough ride, so I told them the take a look at this issue as well.Right around 1,800 miles, mine started rattling as well. Looking to achieve what tjbute did.
My glove box used to rattle a lot - enough where I would sometimes just open while driving to stop the noise. The rattle was coming from the two little spring clips that keep the box door closed: the ones that retract to open the box and spring back out to hold the box closed. There are two little bumper posts on the top that are supposed to keep the box from closing too far or are to keep tension on the box door when closed. Anyways, I put some padded tape on the inside lid of the box door where the posts hit the door when the box is closed.
There is more tension on the box door when it is closed and it doesn't rattle any more. The tape only shows when the box is open and to be honest, I forgot about it until I read this post.
That may have been my number one complaint on my Santa Fe in the first year of ownership.
Awesome! Thank you so much!Here's a photo of what I did. I also included the TSB that Hyundai issued for the Sonata glovebox rattle. It's clearly the same problem as on the Santa Fe and Hyundai's fix accomplishes the same thing as my fix did.
