Customer Question
I have a 2000 V70XC...
I have a 2000 V70XC that has developed a deep rattle in the right side area of the dashboard. Service mechanics have advised against pulling the dash as it might "open a can of worms". Any advice about what it might be and how problematic it is to pull the dash?
Thank you very much.
