I had a rattle from the front dash area that was driving me mad. Dealer said that it was "normal"! After managing to record the noise one day, I took it back to the dealer and they managed to sort it out. It was the join between the dash top panel and the A Frame. Apparently Skoda have some 'special packing' for this (some foam no doubt). Since this was done I have had no further problems with this noise. I have the recordings if anyone would like to compare them - cannot find a way to upload to the site!!

It would be handy if you could find a way to upload the recording, if not for me, then for others.
Was the rattle apparent in the car from new, or did it develop over time ?
It's always a good idea to state in your profile where you're based and if it's in the UK, who is your dealer.

Rattle was not from new - had the car in June 2020 and the rattle started in October 2020.

Interesting. Is this fix visible? i.e. is it something anyone could do without dismantling?

Don't think it can be done without dismantling - took the dealer quite a long time to do.

OK, thanks - but could still be useful info to take back to my dealer if it's now a recognised issue. Of course, might be a completely different rattle anyway, there just seems to be so many potential points of failure with all these different materials they stick together and hope for the best with.
