Rattle behind glove box

I've got this rattle behind the glove box, possibly from the engine bay somewhere. It is only there when at idle, give it a little gas and it goes away. Anyone experience this? I thought I may have read somewhere that it may be related to the CAI I installed? Any help is appreciated.

I have the same one, I believe this is actually the "fuel line rattle". Which has some DIY's that can be found in this sub-forum.

I had the fuel line rattle problem myself and am guessing thats what your problem is.

However, I do recall reading somewhere that there is a CAI (forget the brand) that causes rattles. (I doubt this would be coming from behind your love box tho)

I had my fuel line rattle fixed by the dealer. There is a TSB out for it.

I'd recommend tightening those screws anyways as both of mine were loose as well as many other people!

the light inside my glovebox was extremely loose in its frame. I put some foam tape beside it and used some as a wedge to keep it tight. Im sure it was causing some sort of rattle.
