On my 98 540, there was a really annoying dash rattle from almost the onset. Two dealers could not figure it out. I later determined it was coming from a very simple source--the buttons on the tape player! They had quite a bit of play. I verified another 540 had the same issue. Used scotch tape until the dealer replaced the player (at no cost and on my lot) and the rattle is gone as the replacement tape player buttons are snug. If you ever have a rattle from the dash, just hold the tape buttons with your finger to isolate whether it is coming from there.
