    Don’t think I’ll be removing panels, though.

    Another vibration spot located and eliminated...

    I noticed lately that there was a vibration coming from the back of the center display even with no music playing ...While it's not as loud or obvious while driving with the music turned off, when play music at ~ 40% volume, the top grill plate of the center speaker cover will vibrate and rattle...The vibration from the grill cover would also travel to the display itself and cause this to vibrate as well...

    I simply removed the plastic cover and noticed the speaker metal grill cover tabs (8 of them) were not securely pressed against the plastic of the main cover itself...I then pressed them firmly against the plastic cover and this seemed to fix the problem...see pic below...

    Also the 2 torx screws holding down the display itself (which are exposed after removing the cover) needed roughly a 1/2 turn to secure them firmly...

    Side note: I'm noticing these minor vibrations and rattling occurring more during the extremely hot weather (~110F) we've been having lately here in AZ....Which I suppose should be no surprise because of the large coefficient of expansion of the plastic material some plastic panels with tighter tolerances begin to press and rub against one another...

    Wow that part is made by Toyota ;)

    Any tips on getting that part off the dash?

    It's just held in place with clips...pry up around the edges with a trim tool to remove....

    Here is a video that shows how to remove this piece...instruction for cover removal starts @ 30:10

    With the colder temps my cargo cover started to rattle over rougher roads. It was a tinny metal sound so guessed it was something hitting the aluminum bar. I could reproduce the sound just by gently tapping at the center of the cargo cover.

    Used some hard felt to make a gasket. No more noise.

    This is picture of the cargo cover's center tab thingie contacting the aluminum cross bar from underneath. The arrow points to the 2 layers (folded) of hard felt I placed.

    I used some VHB emblem/trim tape to mount the felt onto the rubber piece at the top where it is flat on this center tab thingie. (felt pulled up for demonstration)

    This is how the felt is positioned once on the car. No one will notice it is there.

    On the hinges I applied aluminum tape to minimize play.

    Yes, I think mine is rattling, too.
