AHHH so many rattles

its driving me crazy ive got quite a few rattles going on especially at low revs i couldnt figure out where it was coming from.

so i found the wiper was insecure so fixed that 1 rattle gone

then i found the glove box was missing some screws so secured that nice and tight now.

also behind the glove sits a little box with relays in it i found that if i flicked and moved it rattled so i taped it up to stop it.

sprayed some wd40 down the dash secured a heater duct which was loose.

went for a drive and its still there so under the steering wheel cover where the relays sit i did the same taped it up cos when it was moved it would rattle like crazy.

but im still getting an annoying vibration through the door cards at low revs but saying this my rear brake pads are shot and need new ones and my discs aka rotors are worn could this be causing the vibration when braking at low revs and causing all this crazyness cos for a 16 year old car its gonna have a few squeaks and rattles isnt it ?.

any advice thanks.

Found where the rattles are coming from,

1. The connector thats in the frame where the corner passenger pillar trim goes had fell in to the frame itself.

2. Some glove box screws were loose and also a screw at the bottom of the glove box at one side the piece of metal that it goes into was vibrating.

so Im gonna pad that out with some foam to stop it.

and the rest is odd dash squeaks but i can live with those.
