Hmm that twizzler stuff you're showing looks to me like the stuff you use to install window screens. Maybe this is someone elses way to mod it to stop the rattle?2004 Black Cobra

Took her out for a spin and that vent rattle is gone! Still trying to figure out what's causing that vibe at around 77-82mph but at least that vent rattle is gone. Great thread fellas. And that was a eal good sugegstion Jimmy putting rtv in the pivot points in your picture. Mine also got stuck in the center position.

Ford was apparently clued in to this since there is a TSB on it (04-05-03):
The difference is, of course, that you have to shell out a bit of $$$ to do the "upgrade", rather than slap on some RTV.2003 Silver Metallic Cobra. A bunch of '00R, FRPP, and MM stuff...

I did this and it helped tremendously !
It will make it much easier to pin down a few other bothersome little buzzes and rattles.

I did this as well, It worked great however I did'nt use the RTV, I had a hard time finding the right stuff. SO I used Vaseline and it worked wonders. DEAD Quiet. I also applied some to the area where the dash contacts the plastic bezel for the vents. Anyways, thanks for the write up!!ツ 2003 Redfire Coupe #4319

Mine has the rattle too, and as luck would have it I have half a can of plasti-dip spray that I'll use and report back, hopefully with pics.Rob

Well I used the plasti-dip spray everywhere, very liberally, and multiple times and it didn't quite stop the rattling. The plasti-dip did work well on the vents themselves, but I used blue silicone everywhere else and resprayed the plasti-dip on the vents one more time to finally quiet everything down. Thanks again to the OP for posting this fix.
