Q: Rattle in dashboard.

asked by on January 11, 2016

I have a rattle in my dashboard. I would also like to have the brakes checked and have it inspected before I sell it.

Hello, for the rattle in the dashboard, that would require a mechanic to perform and inspection, and then advise you of what might have to be disassembled to try to narrow down the location of the noise. For the brakes you will need the aid of mechanic who can inspect the brakes and advise you of any repairs needed.
