Dash speaker grilles rattle

I just picked up my new MKC last Thursday, and the front dash speaker grilles rattle like crazy. I'm very surprised this wasn't noticed during the 17 miles the car was driven before it left the factory. Has anyone else experienced this?

Yep. Passenger side dashboard speaker. Mine is more of a squeak less of a rattle. But that's the least of my annoyances with this MKC.

Same problem here, but on the driver's side.
Dealer said it was the first time he heard about it, but I noticed rattling on all 4 MKC's I drove (My new 2017, Date night MKC and the 2 loaners I had so far)
Dealer was able to get rid of most of it

My 2016 also does this on the drivers side. Its a rattle. I have messed around with trying to figure out how to quiet it, ya know pressing in different spots, jamming a piece of folded paper etc. Have yet to get it 100% quiet. Sometimes it makes no noise at all. Temperature has a lot to do with when it does it or not.

The dealer was able to fix the problem. The repair order says it was the plastic dash trim panel which goes against the windshield. They had to remove the a-Pillar trim and applied some 2 way tape underneath near the ends of the panel and that cured it. They already knew what the problem was because they've had others bring theirs in for the same problem.

I have it also. I thought mine was coming from the center grill like area. BTW: Is there anything under that or is it just a faux grill to match the speaker grill?

I believe there is a center channel speaker under the middle grille, for midrange and dialect.

Glad to know that there are others like mine. Front Driver speaker rattles when it is cold out, but stops as the car warms up and drivers around. Will bring it up to dealership when I go in for my first oil change later this Dec or next year.
