I started hearing another tick, tick, ticking type rattle on rough roads. I started touching panels as I drove to isolate it. I finally traced it to the plastic cover protecting the sensors mounted to the windshield in front of the rearview mirror. I popped the cover off and stuck a couple of pieces of adhesive-backed felt on the left and right sides of the mount where the cover snaps into. Rattle vanquished!

Is that a 2021 or 2022?

Yes, I think so. It's as easy as any other panel using those types of fasteners. I wouldn't yank or tug on it (hey now, stay outta the gutter), just use a firm, consistent pull until the fasteners give way.

If you run your wiring into that area you can route it from there across the headliner and down the A-pillar to the fuse panel on the passenger side. That's what I would do.

It's a 2021, although I don't believe there is a difference between the two for the trim cover I'm referring to. You can see a photo of it here.

My reason for asking the model year is thinking that the factory workers may be less skilled in first year assembly. After the first year, there may be fewer problems such as this as they gain experience. Just a thought.
