Has anyone removed the glovebox damper. Mine is causing a rattle and it's driving me nuts.
Rattle only present when glovebox is closed, opening it even slightly and enabling the damper to stretch a bit and the rattle goes away.

Yes I have. Yes it's an annoying rattle that can only be fixed as you describe. It's internal to the dampener arm. It's not caused by either top or bottom attachment, at least in my case. Be warned reassembling the arm with glovebox is a PITA. Disassembling is a breeze though. No screws or anything, unless you also want to disassemble the top attachment point. On the whole, poor design.
