New 2014 TSX with mild rattle/vibrating/static type noise coming from the front center to right side when going over bumps, only. On smooth roadways there is no noise.
Difficult to pinpoint the exact area.

The car was returned twice to the dealer for the problem. Dealer service manager has heard the noise.
First time, we are advised that the dashboard may be rubbing against another part of car. Give it time to work itself out.
Second time, we are advised in a very polite, nice way that there is not much that can be done.
I have read at this site about the seat belt noise on this site and will check that route.
Anyone with a similar noise?
Here is a video link:

Try pressing on the glovebox and/or leaving it open and see if the noise stops. I fought with this for quite some time and it was driving me insane. What I finally ended up doing was taking the whole glove box off. There are two clips that cover tabs on the dash where the hinge from the glove box bolts on. I put felt pads all around the area and it seems to have fixed the problem.
