Hi guys
Did a quick search but didn't find anything similar. My fiesta is nearly a week old and yesterday it started rattling behind the drivers side air vent (the one next to the door rather than the center console). It's not constant, only on bumpier surfaces but speed doesnt really seem to affect it. Same rattle at 30 mph and 70mph.
Anybody had anything similar and if so how did you get rid of it?
Any help/ideas would be great.

Do you have anything in the driver's side compartment?

No. It sounds like it's directly behind the vent.

Mine (4 months old) has just started rattling behind the passenger part of the dash - sounds similar, only on bumpier surfaces. Driving me mad!

Try the passenger side plastic A-pillar trim - that was rattling about on mine.

Also the passenger door pouch trim can rattle due to its design

Cheers - just spent an hour or so fiddling around and my "A" pillar trim was indeed a bit loose so I've wedged it with a bit of paper, out of sight (old trick!) I also found some loose wiring clips dangling about behind the glove box - which I've now taped up. Plus the door bin seemed to squeak a bit when I wiggled it around so that's had "the treatment" too - also the long piece of hard plastic trim between the footwell & the gear lever surround rattled against a metal tube behind the trim when I moved it around so that's now been padded. I'll see how it goes!

Mine still rattles. I'm fairly certain its coming from behind the driver air vent but i cant poke my finger in far enought to reach anything to see if it stops it. Driving me nuts. I'll see if I can wait till it needs a service to bring it up with ford though.

Mine was rattling today, then I realised it was the pound coins I've put in the coin holders in the glovebox!

strange two possibilities 
The cd player like all cd players has thin metal bars/cage etc couple pieces are hitting together somehow (bolt maybe needing tightened ) 

 

slight gap somewhere anyway that's making that noise lol sorry a couldn't help you but I've heard this noise on many things before i make my own pc and been through a few dvd/cd players and if the hard drives going fast on the pc it vibrate the pc too much this noise is produced after months
