When I don't have the stereo turned up.. I really notice the rattles within the car, especially going over bumps in the road.

Trying to locate the noise will driving is difficult, however it appears to come from the back of the car.. around the parcel shelf area.. I appreciate the suspension on the sport models are very stiff, however suprised that a car of this quality would make these noises..very obvious will driving without music on..!

So... anyone else out there have the same issues..? Is you car deadly quiet when driving over pot holes or bumps. Would like a concensus before I waste my time explaining this to the dealership...

Thanks

My car is quiet as a mouse when driving over bumps, even with a modified suspension. Sorry to hear that yours is not so quiet. Good luck getting it resolved.

Hmmm, looks like Gio and I may each have 'Friday afternoon' cars. I have an occasional 'zizzz' from the speaker grill on the top of the dash, some other undefined rattles that come and go without driving me to too much distraction (i.e., no match for another notc on the B & O) and more recently, a very irritating squeak where the driver's side seatbelt latch is rubbing into the side of the seat squab. Not sure why it's just started happening but it's p*ssing me off and actually starting to form an indentation on the seat.

Overall though, still light years ahead of my Alfa GT, in which all of the pieces of interior trim hav no more than a passing acquaintance with each other! (But I still love her!)

Hi GIO 1 / Audi owners,

I've got exactly the same problem ! Rear parcel / speaker shelf area :(
Have you managed to find what's causing it ?
I'm phoning the dealer tomorrow, it seems to be getting worse :(
I'd be interested to hear whether you've cured it.

Kind Regards

Hawkeye...........

There is a slider on the belt that isnt very tight and gradually the belt buckle slides further down the belt. Just keep pushing the slide back up

I had a similar problem before, however it was the drivers side window causing it. It needed a special seal installed which audi managed to fix. Since then no other noises.

I had a loose wire in the drivers door. The dealer fixed it then tells me that squeaks and rattles are covered under warranty for only 6 months.

I had a creak from the rear parcel shelf on uneven ground; the garage more or less fixed it, but they had it for a day or two.

Dealer replaced subwoofer in parcel shelf but managed to break the grill cover. Ordered new grills and complete new shelf. All fitted last week. Guess what the speaker still vibrates. It going back in this week.
I have noticed that the vibration is a lot worse when the weather is cool, eg first thing in the morning :confused:

No squeaks or rattles here, either, except occasionally for the coins in the coin holder. Stock suspension.

No squeakes at all, no buzz, but I did find a piece of plastic that is molded and may be some type of decorative cover but not sure where it came from. I'm keeping it for now; could be from either under the dash or under the seat (driver side.)

Rattle here! It seems to be in driver's side exhaust can(loose baffle?). You can hear it outside the car from 50' away. Making an appointment.

After 3 weeks, I began getting a loud rattle at the top of the driver's (left) A-pillar when traveling over some road surfaces at 70mph+.

My wife suggests that I obey the speed limit to avoid the problem. :(

I'm going for my first oil change next week so hopefully they can find something. Seems like it has to be the airbag in the A-pillar.

Regarding tne earlier fix my dealer did to fix my vibrating subwoofer. After some weeks without the vibration I played a CD with some hefty bass on it. Sod it the vibration is back. I decided to have a go at fixing it my self. I worked out that if I pulled down on the underside of the shelf then it stopped, so I figured that if I could insert something in between the steel lower shelf and the top part of the shelf it might stop. Eureeka, I inserted very carefully a wooden wedge near to where the vibration was and its stopped :)

Gio, I had what sounds like the same annoying rattle coming from the back. Could hear it when sterio was switched off. Anyway, took it to my local dealer who where brilliant. They basically said that if its annoying me then its not right ! They have had the car for a week trying to determine what it was. They've taken the parcel shelf away etc. They are now replacing the rear shocks as they believe this is where the problem lies. Suggest you just get it in with the dealer and let them sort.
