    Have any of you experienced severe rattling of the air vents in your radio/AC controls bezel on your 94-03's? Reason I ask, over the years, the foam gasket peices in mine have disentegrated and since that happened, the vents now rattle bigtime over bumps or just the slightest little shake of the car.

    Has anyone attempted to replace foam or ran into this problem, with a potentional way to fix (without buying another bezel)? Late Model used to sell these as brand new replacements and now you can't find them new any more.

    Thanks.

    For the longest time, I had a penny wedged in the top left corner of my radio bezel... to stop the rattle. Now I work at a dealership, so foam stripping is readily available to me. When my interior goes back in, I'm wrapping everything I can find that might make even the slightest of noises.

    Never had any rattling from my 94. What kind of foam is it? I have some thick self adhesive foam for a project that I got from vatozone called camper top weather strip. Its a soft foam that is about 3/16" thick and 1 1/4" wide that could be cut/trimmed easily.
