I've had rattles in the dashboard of two 2002 E39's I've owned, heard when driven over coarse pavement. Both are low mileage cars with high-end tires in great condition.
Anyone successfully tackled this problem?
Try removing the trim around the dashboard panel. Maybe the screws that hold it are loose which creates the rattling. Also, check your glove box and make sure the plastic strap on both ends are in placed. Mine had come off and had to realigned it.
