Does this bug anyone else. The remote key fob bangs against the steering column. On my Grand Cherokee the design engineers had placed a rubber dampening pad surrounding that area of the column. It was integrated into the column and worked great.. and no clanking!
Suggestions??:(

Easy fix, get the loop side of velcro and stick it where the keys strike the column

Stick on Feet

Yeah, it bothered me too. Mine has the ebony interior, so I bought some of those stick on fuzzy feet that you put under decorator items to prevent them from scratching table tops. I bought the big ones, about 1" in diameter.

I cut one in half, so there was a flat edge and stuck it under the key hole with the flat edge matching the flat edge of the steering column. No more noise. Nobody has ever noticed it is there either.

Those are both a couple of great solutions to an annoying problem that should have been solved by the design engineers!
