    Anyone else having this issue? Less than 5000 miles and all of the sudden my windshield is making a ratteling-like noise. A sound as if it’s not set in properly. Strange and annoying.

    Yeah highly doubt it's the windshield it would leak terribly I would think if it was that badly set. Had a car "whistle" at higher speeds I never figured out but not a windshield rattle.

    It’s more of a squeaky rattle vs. pure rattle. Don’t think my wiper is culprit. Literally sounds like windshield is not in correct. WTF? I thought these problems went away when I got rid of my Jeep...

    Could be a hundred things but I doubt it's the windshield. Check the mud skirts or whatever they are called in the front fender wells, people have been having noise from them lately.

    Honestly I'm thinking dash also. Lots of crap behind there.

    I'm embarrassed to report back but the vibration / rattling noise was coming from my wiper. It must have not went back into place the last time I ran them. Once I ran them again, they set back in the proper place and the noise / vibration ended.
    Elementary my dear Watson.
