Anyone who have a hybrid RAV4 have this noise? It's like a very faint sound coming from the dash when car is in low speed or if u the car. It's annoying the living **** outta me when I don't have radio on. I love the car tho, solid nonetheless it's just this sound that wants me to go to Homedepot buy a rope and hang myself
It sounds like this

I hear a noise on my 2016 hybrid but I have realized mine is when the fan is on higher speeds. Is this your video or a video that sounds like yours?

I know the feeling. Even with the radio on I focus on the rattle. It drove me crazy. Are you able to locate it and press against it and make it stop? I had a rattle coming from my driver door panel and the dealer tried putting foam tape. After 2 attempts they ended up replacing the door panel with a new one.

I had a rattle from the dash driving on bumps at low speed just after my first 500km but now disappeared. The sound was different from your rattle.

It did work. But, I was able to locate the rattle and press on it and the rattle would go away.

Either way, take it to the dealer and do a test drive with the service guy and make sure he can hear it. That way he knows what you are talking about and can diagnose.

Took my 2015 to the dealer for a sunroof rattle that was progressively getting louder. The dealer changed the entire sunroof assembly under warranty. I didn't try to figure it out, left it to the dealer to deal with it. All fixed, happy now. Let the dealer solve your problem for you :)

I took it to the dealer 2 times. On the 2nd time after I picked it up and took it back and said the noise is still there. The service writer said he will order a new door panel and would call me when he got it in. So, I had to take it back 3 times to get it fixed.

Twice. Once to take a tech on a drive to show him the problem, the second time for him to fix it. Whenever I have a noise that needs to be addressed, I always insist in taking a tech out on the road to show him what I am hearing.
