Hi all,
Has anyone ever taken the glove box out of the 2013 phase 1 Duster Laureate? I have a really irritating vibe coming from the roof of the box. If I apply upwards pressure, pressing the plastic against, I presume, the metal framework, the vibe stops. I've attached a large firm rubber grommet to the inside of the lid, so that when it closes, it puts that pressure onto the plastic roof, but obviously that's putting strain on the glove box lid catch. This eliminates the vibe, but over time the rubber works loose. What it needs is a small PK screwed through the plastic & into the metal structure, if that's what it is. But what lurks behind the metal casing?
I've asked this question on the Dacia Duster forum, but didn't get an answer. I don't suppose it's something that is explored.

Any ideas?

Does it happen all the time or only at a specific rpm?

Many vibrations/noises like that are 'cured' by the manufacturer by applying some rubber sheet (self adhesive) over the offending surface to dampen the resonance. If it's caused by simple 'interference' (mechanical) then all you can do is increase the distance between interfering surfaces or close the gap entirely (with the screw).

The vibe is definitely caused by one surface touching another which is fairly constant. The screw theory would certainly cure it, as does the temporarily grommet use. But it's knowing what's lies on the other side of the frame having drilled & inserted a very short screw, to minimise any chance of causing serious damage to what's there. I'm not prepared to drill until I know what is there.

You could always do what I used to do when I had a small kid..... stuff the glove box full to overflowing with a congealed mass of soggy sweets.

Does it have a chilled glovebox ? if its anything like Nissan/Renault it will be the heater ducting and where they join, the ducting is made out of that plastic you find in a box of chocolates

try the Dacia forums I'm sure there a lot of knowledgeable people on there

http://www.daciaforum.co.uk/forum/forum/3-dacia-duster-forum/

Edit. I see your on there already 'BeeJay' :lol:

A bit of close cell foam padding of top of the glovebox should cure it or a square of sound deadening

Squirt some expanding foam through the small hole you've already made for a screw then put the screw back in quick.

@mikew1972 that's a possible solution, but again, I've no idea what's on the other side.

Remove the glove box and have a look

The glove box is an integral part of the entire fascia, so that's a no no.

Really? Usually they are a separate compartment to make it less awkward to fit the dash etc. Is the join hidden?

No, it's as I said. I know this because when I first bought the car, it had to go in for a fault on the heater & the entire dash had to come out. I took photo's at the time & it's all one piece.

It will be removable the fixings will be hidden you have the obd2 and the light so it must be accessible plus the passenger airbag above it

I will see if I can find a service manual from one of my contacts

the dash would have to come out for any heater work as its right up against the firewall on 90% of cars

WOW, just wow, had a look at the esm (electronic service manual)

It is a whole dash out job -above the glove box is the air bag that is just attached to the plastic dash - you can see how they can make these so cheaply

Thanks for that flash22. Now you guys can understand my decision not to simply drill a hole, no matter how small.

I don't suppose a picture is possible? Am I right in assuming there is the metal frame immediately above the box top. If it is a frame I could, with care, still drill a hole in the box top & then insert a very short screw having ground off the point to take up the gap & put a slight pressure on the top by virtue of slightly separating the two components. Or simply slam a 6" nail in. :lol: :lol: :lol:
