While driving over rough roads, a rattling noise may be heard from the area of the radio or heating control unit.

The noise is caused by movement between the lower retaining bracket for the Car Communication Computer (CCC) or Car Information Computer (CIC), and the plastic housing to which it is secured. You can eliminate the noise by installing felt tape to the retaining braket.

  • Remove CCC, radio and heating control unit from dash.
  • Remove fasteners (A) and lower reatining bracket (B).
