Ever since I bought this car, one thing that has annoyed me since day one is the fact that the window switch boxes in both the left and right front door panels vibrate when you have the radio turned up above 20. I’ve got the Pioneer premium audio package in my Cruze and I think it’s pretty good quality, but it’s clearly not dampened anywhere near enough. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can fix this? Thanks

Ours does that as well, since those 6.5s provide a good amount of bass all by themselves. I always wondered if @XtremeRevolution 's speaker baffles would stop that, while retaining the stock speakers.

Yeah, it’s great a quality audio system. It’s just annoying how the switches vibrate, and it literally is just the switches because whenever I put my hand on top of them, they stop vibrating. I think it definitely needs some more dampening. I’ll look into those speaker baffles, I think they’d probably help a lot.

I have the Pioneer system as well. I put the CLD tiles from sounddeadenershowdown.com on the doors behind the panels, and I also put some on the back of the door panels. I don't have any vibration noises. Not sure if this will fix your problem. You might want to check if the wiring is rattling of it is literally the switches.

Another thought, the service manual says to replace the plastic clips every time the door panels are removed. You can get a box of the clips on Amazon for relatively cheap. New clips hold the panels tighter and could reduce vibrations and rattles. There are two different clips - the gray ones and the yellow ones. Each door panel requires 4 of each.

Thanks for the reply! I’ll probably end up taking the door panels off and taking a look, it’s rattled since day one and it appears to simply be the switches. So I’m not sure there’s a fix for the switches but I’ll definitely look into getting some sound deadening material to put behind the door panels.
