Dash rattle when hot

Hi everyone, for about 6 months, Iíve had an annoying dash rattle in my 2018 Ghibli. The rattle ONLY occurs when the weather is warm and the car has been sitting in direct sunlight for a short time. No rattles in the morning, late afternoon, or night. Iíve taken it to my local dealer twice to get it fixed. The first time, they said they put some foam inside the Maserati Touch Control system but that didnít fix the problem. The second time, they removed and installed a new center vent assembly but again, that didnít solve the issue. Any suggestions? Thank you!

There is no magical or universal fix for a random rattle you can find on any forum - be it in a Camry or a Bugatti. The only way to fix it is to have the service techs hands-on with the car trying to pinpoint it.

Ahhh dash rattles, my favorite. You’re going to end up getting a new dashboard put in. They have a few steps they have to take before they can authorize one. I believe it had to be 3 complaints before it was allowed to be replaced. Just gonna have to tough it out for a little longer and complain about it again to the dealer and eventually they’ll replace the whole thing.

Rattles are definitely tough to pinpoint but in my case, there’s a cause and effect - - the rattle only occurs when the car has been in direct sunlight. I Googled the topic and found forums from some other car makes complaining about the same thing. They claim “heat expansion”. I was just curious whether any other Ghibli owners have experienced something similar.

Can you, or a passenger, pinpoint the rattle while occurring.

Somethings it is just easier for me to track down then sending to the dealer.
