Steering wheel/dash "rattle?" upon heavy acceleration?

Seems like when I push the car to higher RPM's I get some sort of a rattle from almost the dash or steering column? Haven't had the time to look through all the 20+ pages of rattle threads...

Ahhhh yes, this.... I was going to get this taken care of under warranty. The rattle in question is more of a crackle that comes from the center console. Maybe the head unit.

I figured it was a wire not plugged in fully that was causing this. It's only really noticeable under heavy acceleration.

I had this too, but just got back into town, and my car was in service before I left, I told them about it, so I'll drive it tomorrow with the windows up to see if that rattle noise is still there during WoT.

So far the new speaker clips has secured the grille nicely.
