    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    I've scoured the internet for threads by 2019 Gen4 Owners about Dash Rattles. I know the most common culprit is the wiring harness or the tube behind the glove box. (Btw, what is that tube for?) But this past visit at the dealership service center has got me a little curious whether others...

It sounds like it's metal to metal (e.g. loose nut) and location is very hard to pinpoint, sometimes looks like it's from the rear, sometimes from the front. Anyways, I noticed that the rear bumper rings...
