Hi "Confusion", I'm sorry to say that I have still not found my dash rattle. I am sure that I shall have to remove the dash at some point because there is obviously something loose under there. Unfortunately Haynes have not yet produced a manual for this model so I am a bit stuck, plus, I must admit I am waiting for the warmer weather! By the way, one of the areas that I did find rattling was the rear folding seat backs. I taped the bars that the catches engage with insulating tape and it quietened it down. I also packed the rear doors which I suspected of rattling. If I find anything else out I will post it here for you.

Hi im new to this site as well,and along with the sound of metal sliding about i have the same problem as you a rattle from the passenger side dashboard that's driving me mad,Ive shoved a piece of foam between the windscreen and dash but its done nothing and after reading some of the problems that are associated with the fusion im beginning to regret buying one and long for the escort diesel estate i used to have the car before my last one. :(

ford have a tsb on this subject concerning the lack of padding around the ventilation pipes where they come through the bulkhead from the engine so try and check if you can and add some foam padding.


I removed all the plastic covers from the bulhead at the rear of the engine but the ventilation pipes are well padded and tight. I did find a broken plastic moulding which holds the gauze filter to the heater intake so I replaced it. However the dashboard rattle is still there so I would be grateful if anyone has any further suggestions.

Many thanks for that. I will check it out. I cannot find any Ford TSB's on the web but I am still looking.

Thanks again
