Hi All:

Still trying to track down an annoying "clank" - almost sounds like a lead fishing weight sliding in a soup can.

It really sounds like it's either coming from behind the plastic cover that's next to the e-brake mechanism - or - from the upper left quadrant under the dash.

Thoughts?

Behind this panel - next to the e-brake pedal

That's the kick panel.  The wiring connections for the power windows and locks are behind there.  Can't think of anything else in there.

It would be nearly impossible for any of that wiring to move back in there, but there is a big void behind that.  The cowl opening comes down there, and on a car with no a/c, air can blow in there.  If there is something hanging in that void, it would be very unusual.
