    Default 2006 XC70 Rear-Passenger AC Vent Rattle

    Hey all,

    First post. New here. Just bought my XC70 last week. I absolutely love it, but one thing has been driving me nuts..

    The Rear-Passenger side vent has a rattle in it. Something must be loose in there. I think the sound is even more prominent to me because the rest of the vehicle is so well-made and quiet. Has anybody eexperienced this, and if so what was your fix? Is there any way I can easily remove the vent to take a look at it? Is this an easy part to replace?

    Help would be greatly appreciated, thanks guys.

    PS: I did do a quick search for another thread on this but couldn't find one. If I'm reposting a topic that's been covered, I apologize and would appreciate a link to the correct thread. Thanks again.

    Is the rattle happening all the time or only when the vents are blowing?
    I had a problem once after I changed my cabin filter. There is a large tree that drops a lot of small leaves out front of my house and some got into the cabin filter. While replacing it I some passed thru and ended up in stuck my vents. Eventually they blew out of the system, hitting me in the face when I was least expecting it.
    Any number of thing can be caught down there especially if kids stick things in it.

    Always rattles when I'm driving. Especially on a bumpy road, and when I'm accelerating to get up to speed. I did try to blow it out with an air compressor, nothing changed. Is the vent easily removable?
