Hi all. Having an issue of a very annoying buzzing with the base. It’s somewhere behind the subwoofer panel but I have no idea how to remove the panel. My question is, would something like this be covered under warranty? Or does anyone have instructions on how to remove that subwoofer panel? The buzzing is getting worse so it likely something loose or pressing against the woofer.

Hey there! I can look into your Bronco’s noise concerns on my end if you’d like. Will you send us a private message with your VIN and dealership info?

This is a known issue that a lot of owners here have been experiencing, including myself. I'm having the dealership look into it when I do my service this week. I didn't want to attempt to remove the panel myself and break anything. I will let you know how it goes.

Please do. I’m going to schedule my first service soon so I am hoping this is addressed. Noises inside a vehicle is one of my biggest pet peeves. I love my music so this is definitely not making me happy. 😆

I noticed that when I opened the 12V power point, a good portion of the buzzing stopped. I had installed a liftgate light that's always plugged in, so I kind of stumbled onto this. But it reduced buzzing a lot.

On my First Edition, I removed the back panel and tracked it down to the entire subwoofer housing rattling around. I tried to tighten everything and it help but still rattled. I ended up taking some spare pieces of Dynamat I had left over and lined the inside and backside of the sub box and put it back in. Buzz is gone finally. What a pain

when I press against the panel it stops the buzzing but I don’t think I should have to pull apart my bronco and try to fix that. It could void my warranty. I’ll see if plugging something into that 12v outlet works but I doubt it. It seems to be the panel vibrating.

Thanks for the reply. Hopefully this is fixed for me under warranty….without breaking anything. ☺
