Is that where you're applying the foam backed tape?
I had a couple of locations in the dash that were rattling and both were around the nav unit. At first I pulled the nav unit completly out and tested drove it, which is how I discovered where the second rattle was coming from. I pulled the center dash trim and padded it along with the nav unit and cabling, which deadened the vibrations and rattles for me.

I've also had rattles in the rear deck and the headliner that were isolated with the help of a friend that put his hands all over the place trying to affect the loose and vibrating parts.
