Anyone experience this?

Sounds more like a clicking than a rattle.

From post above, this seems to be the one I have

he said there is a bolt which holds the instrument cluster mount to the dash. it itself was tight, but he noticed there was a small gap which allowed play in the dash and he could replicate some sounds by moving the dash/cluster around. so, he ended up sticking a washer between the assembly and the play dissapeared. he said after that fix, he couldn't detect the noise again. i agreed with him, that at least when we drove together afterward, i didn't hear the sound at all.
I have 2013 CVT and hear the exact same noise at low throttle and in the same place rpm wise.. almost like the tach or the speedo.. very annoying and more of a consisntent whine than a rattle, kinda like a constant vibration. When i bring my car in I will suggest the findings found here.. any other input would be appreciated. ty
