      I think I may have discovered the cause of an annoying rattle coming from my dashboard.

      There is a small black cover in the centre above the parking sensor strip which seems quite free moving.

      It unclips very easily and exposes a small circuit board which also seems to rattle around.

      Firstly what is this circuit board for and secondly would there be any harm in my sticking some Blu Tac in there to stop it vibrating?

      I don't know what it is, but blu-tac should be fine since I doubt it's conductive.

      that's the light sensor for AC unit, is it for compensate the ventilation in case the sunlight comes directly in front, measure the light for driver seat and passenger seat.
      It has nothing mechanic inside, maybe a sponge under the board will help to hold it firmly.
      Do not put anything on top of it, just his cover. Otherwise the AC unit will not work as should.
