You only have 1 year and 20,000km (I think) for "adjustments" - that means rattles. I am going to take mine in immediately for each odd noise I hear (within reason). You got to get them fixed right away - too bad yours developed late. That is a well documented problem. Vortex has a DIY for that one I think.

My car is making a similar sound too, from the front and the back also, it is very weird and concerning. Never makes the dam noise when I take it in, and there clue less there any way.

I'm on my second MK V and both of them have had the same rattle. I'm have an appointment tomorrow to have it fixed. If they give me a hard time however, I'll DIY it.

Dealer fixed my rattle in the dash back in April no charge just a few weeks after I'd had the car for a year. Started rattling again a month or two ago. They repaired it again this week, no charge. Except I don't think they got it fixed. I'll probably be taking it back next week.

There is a TSB for this problem. It is the center air diffuser rattling against the metal underneath. I just got it fixed. Still makes noise, bit only when I go over some big bumps. The dealership told me that there is only a year warranty for this, but I bitched at them and then they decided to look it up and found out that there is a recall (or whatever they called it) for it and got fixed for no charge with some foam and tape.

mine does it too its the center air diffuser were the heat comes out to put it all on the windshield They made a sterio in your car so put it to use turn up the tunes and forget about it worry about if your engine is knocking or clunking not if your air vent is rattling a bit
