Default yes, the Mk2 has a glove box and mine rattles

I did some searching here about this issue and only found threads where people were surprised any 996s had glove boxes or ones where the handle fell off.

Mine rattles when I go over even minor imperfections in the pavement. Has anyone figured out a fix for this? If I use pressure to hold the door it seems to stop, so I'm wondering if I replaced the little rubber cushions if it would fix it.

Have you taken it out to inspect? It's really easy to take out.

Might be something simple.

I have definite rattle in mine, but nothing from the glove box, thankfully.
My double-din radio rattles like a beast sometimes, even with a folded-over business card shoved into the crevices to hold it in place...

I have a mk1 so direct experience but evey glove box i have seen has an adjustale strike\latch. Usually u just have to loosen a couple screws and move it back slightly. Since it stops when u push on it im guessing making the latch tighter may fix the issue.

There are quite a few places it could rattle - taking it apart and tightening up the screws will help.

Its only held in with 4 screws - 2 are accessible quite easily the other two require the dampers to be pulled forward to unclip then the door can expose access to the two rear screws.

Don't forget to release the light harness before trying to remove the entire unit.
