These four holes are there to insert two set of prongs in them, push sideways away from center and pull the CD player out. There're no screws in these holes.

If I were you, I would take the CD player out and see if the noise stops, then you're either sure this is it, or you look somewhere else. -- Remove "NOSPAM" from address for direct e-mail ####### # #### # # # # # # # ## # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # ## # # #### # # # --------------1DFFFE9FB237E43879B866F0 Content-Type: text/html; charset=us-ascii Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit <!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en"> <html> Peter Thompson wrote: <blockquote TYPE=CITE>I have just taken delivery of a newish (Sept 2000) 9-3 SE which is <br>gorgeous in all respects except that there is a creaky rattle from the <br>dash which gets worse depending on (a) how fast you are driving and <br>(b) how bumpy the road is.  Is there anything that can be done about <br>this?  The location of the noise is not easy to pinpoint although <br>pushing the area of the console where the CD player is located does <br>stop it.  There are four holes on the CD facia, two either side - are <br>these screw holes?  In which case is it worth tightening them?  The <br>only other visible screw, a largish Torx near the steering column <br>seems tight enough already.</blockquote> These four holes are there to insert two set of prongs in them, <br>push sideways away from center and pull the CD player out. <br>There're no screws in these holes.
