I went to the Yankee Game, my nephews got the biggest box of lemonhead Candy I have ever seen. Even though I cannot get anybody to admit it, I believe that one of the kids put some Lemonheads in my front Vents. I can hear them rolling around, left to right on the turns, and front to back during braking. It sounds to me like they are rolling about a foot left to right during turns. I have removed the glove box to try to locate the source of the noise, but I am having a really hard time isolating where the noise is coming from. This is one of those things that will drive me insane if I don't make the noise stop. Where would I start looking for them and how do I take the dash apart to get to them?
First I would try to vacuum them out. Take the defrost vent cover off. It pulls up. Take a shop vac and duct tape a section of garden hose or similar hose that will fit in the vents and snake it in there and try to suck up the candy. If that doesn't work you can try taking off various pieces of dash to get to the vents. May have to lay on your back with a light and see if you can pull apart the vents at the connectors.
How do you remove the plastic defrost cover, the front vent covers, and the floor vents without cracking all that plastic? I tried pulling the defrost cover off and it sure seems like it will crack before it moves. I don't have any special interior removal tools either.
