Cheers. Lol
Im guessing dome light. Lots of people with subs complain about it. I wish I could remember the fix I once stumbled across. But never been a problem for me, so I just skimmed it. Its on one of the five cobalt forums I frequent, or used to. Css, gmsc.n, yc, ecotecf.com or ccf. Sorry I can't be more help.

I wish I had a dome light some times. You can remove it and I'll use it!

I just folded a tiny piece of cardboard and shoved it in the crack between dome light and plastic. It has been working well for over a year now.

yes this is want im talking about. Sorry i meant dome.I have a coupe lt so it has the subs in the trunk but i do that same thing and that only works for a few days and then the vibrations starts coming back. My dome has so much paper inside. I guess i'll put some more and see..... i heard a guy talking about using Dynamat but i don't which one or how to use it.

Dynamat/Fatmat won't help for the dome light.....I took my whole headliner off and did fatmat behind it on the interior roof metal, made a big difference but not for dome light shaking. I put ONE single folded cardboard in the dome light crack (folded real tight) and it hasn't shook in over a year so you must be doing it wrong? Just take all the paper pieces out and put one small folded piece of cardboard in there real tight. You can barely even notice that there's paper inside mine :p

Have you considered changing your dome light to an LED instead. I know mine doesn't rattle and it has 4 little rubber bumpers on the circuit board I imagine in case it does come in contact with something. Better white light too. And this picture was take during the day.
