2017 mdx hybrid advance rattle/rubbing sound coming from glove box area

It's not the glove box itself, but it sounds like there's something rattling/rubbing in there when you're driving over rough roads. It was even worse on my 2016 mdx tech sh-awd.

Can't hear it at all if you're driving on smooth roads.

The sound could possibly be even louder in the summer when things expand because of the heat.

Just would like to know if anybody else has had this issue and if so how did they fixed it or dealt with it.

There has been a similar thread 10 years ago, but no solution for 3rd gen. Glove Box door rattle

But I don't think the sound is coming from glove box door itself.

Thanks for the responses.

Step one, empty your glove box - make sure there is nothing in your glove box that's making the sounds while going over a bumpy road. Also, make sure there is nothing under a seat or in a pasenger side door pocket that could be causing the sound.
