Annoying Rattling from Ambient Light Sensor on 2008 MDX
This is the first annoying thing I have experienced since buying this car. Only started this morning as I was driving the kids to school. When on idle there is a loud plastic rattling noise. My son determined it was coming from the dash and upon closer inspection was that ambient light sensor piece (i only know what it is called because skirmich pointed it out in another thread). If i press down on the sensor the rattling stops. It could be the sensor or something underneath but it is plastic and it sounds like a bunch of frozen peas on a vibrating surface. Stopping at lights or at stop signs was annoying and if it werent for the fact that i am a law abiding citizen i would have ran a light or two due to the annoyance. Yes. Minor issue in the scheme of things but anyone seen this before and how to fix?
