      I'll go in the next few weeks...just wanna make sure theres no other rattles before only had it for two weeks now.

So I'm thinking it's that plastic thing that starts at the middle vents and goes all the way to the left vent... same kind of plastic as on the passenger's vent hence the same kind of sound....

      I LOVE LOVE LOVE my jetta....but I got rid of my Corolla mostly because of rattles, don't want some more in the jetta :S... so far i have had those rattles (which if they don't stop I might use my civic more often) and some in the doors at certain frequencies...which i believe is normal because i listen to my music with lots of bass....so plan on doing dynamat this summer...but other than that, (knock on wood) it has been good so far....has 18k kms on it at the moment...
      I had the crackling noise as well,I was sure it was comeing from the vents or the head unit or the environment controls.
      I removed the vent panel and drove the car,no change,removed the head unit,no change,,,I put felt pads under the heads of screws,drove the car for two weeks with the trim panel that goes around the head unit off so I could try different things,ie put finger pressure on differnet items as I went over bumps and it didnt work.
      I finally figured it out,,,there is a joint between where the dash meets the center console on each side of the storage compartment under the environment controls.
      When you go over your favourite bumpy roads that make the noise,put your thumb at the top of the seam,your forefinger at the bottom inside the storage compartment and put a good twist or side loads on the joint,,,the noise dissapears.
      Go buy some Super Lube Dri-Film lubricant and spray the seam/joint from both sides,,,,do it a couple of times per side,,,dont worry about getting any on the visible surfaces,it wipes away with no damage.
      I did this a month ago,,,its all quiet now.
      As a side note,when I was looking for felt tape and couldnt find any,,I used the soft side of velcro tape instead,works great!

      I would like to participate with you. I am really tired of all the rattles, cracking, and road noise when you are going to start let me know and I'll so out with you.

      I got off the phone with VW corporate today. I basically trashed the quality of the vehicle on the email survey and I received a phone call from customer support. I made it clear that it's not the dealership who is the problem, it's the build quality of the car. THey said to call them a few days before my courtesy check up and they would contact the regional manager to oversee the dealership going through the car. There are so many crackles and rattles that I'm going nuts. Ridiculous.

      I've got a few new ones since the weather has gotten warmer. The worst are right near my left ear (b pillar?) and somewhere from passenger door. A few near the HU and climate controls possibly the rear shelf.

      I bought some boom mat, felt tape, padding, and other sound deadeners. As soon as I get a free, warm weekend I'm going to take it all apart, take a ton of pics, and update this thread with DIYs.

      I would be absolutely in love with this car if it wasn't for the rattling. If the 2013 models turn out to be much improved, I'm trading up.

      Thanks for the sticky flynn!

      I tried to take some pics for another person,,,they didnt turn out good enough to post.
      The seam is visable from the side,,it starts at the storage compartment and angles down towards the gas pedal.
      As far as the tape is concerned,I applied it over the "posts" that are on the backside of the trim piece that has the vents mounted in it,,,goes from the center of the dash past the instruments cluster to the left side.
      The posts pass through metal retainers/recievers that I thought might be a source of metal on plastic noise.
      Hope this helps.

      Here are the current list of issues I'm trying to track down.

      The worst is somewhere near the passenger door or A pillar or dash/vent area; I really can't track it down. It's a constant ticking rattle, not a creaking or popping. It sounds like something real thin or small is totally loose and rattles around inside something. It's constant, just general vibrations cause it, not only bumps.

      The second is somewhere near my left ear, I guess the B pillar. It's very faint, but constant.

      The third is the driver side mirror. It sounds like loose plastic, most noticeable when I accelerate, the engine/trans vibration causes it. Sometime road bumps also cause it. I'm really hesitant to try to address this one myself, I don't want to screw any exterior up.

      Anyone else having rattles from the side mirrors?

      The first two you listed I had/have. The one above your left ear might be what I had - a poorly installed headliner with broken clips. I brought it to my dealer, and they replaced the whole thing. Said that when they took it off some of the clips were broken, some not clipped into place properly. I blame Puebla. Anyway, they replaced it and padded some of the clips in there, and its fine now.

      I have the passenger door one too, had the dealer try to fix it twice (also had them do dampening for the buzzing when playing loud music). Its better, but theres still that annoying faint rattle, like you said, sounds like it comes from something small in the door. It comes and goes. I bought some trim removal tools, and took the silver trim piece off - theres a loose part where one clip fits into that I plan on securing somehow and coating with dry lubricant. See if that helps...

      2011 Jetta 2.5 SEL w/ Cov.
      03-14-2012 08:05 PM #120
      Took my 2011 Jetta SEL in today for my 10,000 mile checkup.

      I did an early morning drop-off and FILLED the "problem" form up! I genuinely felt bad for the tech that got that form - he probably swore to himself about all the stuff that I wanted fixed. Ha.

      I bought this car with 6,000 miles on it - it was a Dealership Service Loaner - so I have driven it for only 4,000 miles. All of these issues popped up within the last two weeks as the weather changed to above 50 degrees.

      Here's what I asked them to address:

      - Standard 10,000 mile checkup items
      - Snapping / Cracking noise coming from behind the Navigation unit when going over bumps (LOUD)
      - Plastic inserts in front doors rattle and vibrate constantly when going over rough road / playing bass-heavy music
      - Loud wind noise coming from Driver's side door at normal driving speeds
      - Recall on adjusting the chrome tailpipe attachments to be shorter.
      - Loud rubbery squeak sound when turning the steering wheel
      - Back passenger door plastic came unhooked - it was impossible to close this door yesterday as the door would hit the protruding plastic piece at the bottom of the door sill - that was awesome to see.

      The tech manager called me to apologize that there were so many issues with this new car. I was surprised that he was so honest. He verified every one of my claims and told me that he fixed almot all of them quickly.

      The only issues that he could not fix today were the snapping noise coming from behind the Nav unit - it was actually a bad Climate Control module that had broken somehow and was no longer connected to the rest of the Navigation harness - explains the noise. He had to order this part.

      - They also had to order a "spring" for the steering column - he said that it had broken and that was what was making the rubber squeak noise when turning (huh?... ok..)

      I won't get my Jetta back for a day or so to address all of this - what a mess!
      In the meantime they paid for a rental car - the only thing the rental car company had available was a Dodge RAM 1500 - WTF! That thing is ridiculous!

      I just want my Jetta back

      I had them fix my steering wheel noise and it's doing it again! It had been about 8-10 months since they fixed it. It's like a eurt-eurt

      seems and sounds as if it is hitting the plastic tray.....and not just a little bit upon inspection.

      anyone have this occur ?
      quick fix ?
      or have the dealer fix it ?

      thanks, jim
      Yes... it's a common problem. They have to do a procedure to set the limits of the wiper (My work order says "followed ELSA procedure to reset to factory specs".

      I did an early morning drop-off and FILLED the "problem" form up! I genuinely felt bad for the tech that got that form - he probably swore to himself about all the stuff that I wanted fixed. Ha.

      I bought this car with 6,000 miles on it - it was a Dealership Service Loaner - so I have driven it for only 4,000 miles. All of these issues popped up within the last two weeks as the weather changed to above 50 degrees.

      Here's what I asked them to address:

      - Standard 10,000 mile checkup items
      - Snapping / Cracking noise coming from behind the Navigation unit when going over bumps (LOUD)
      - Plastic inserts in front doors rattle and vibrate constantly when going over rough road / playing bass-heavy music
      - Loud wind noise coming from Driver's side door at normal driving speeds
      - Recall on adjusting the chrome tailpipe attachments to be shorter.
      - Loud rubbery squeak sound when turning the steering wheel
      - Back passenger door plastic came unhooked - it was impossible to close this door yesterday as the door would hit the protruding plastic piece at the bottom of the door sill - that was awesome to see.
      Still waiting to get my Jetta back from this 10,000 mile checkup!

      They ordered two parts to fix some of the rattles mentioned above and seem to have royally messed up the install/repair.

      I was called yesterday to tell me that they need it for another day because they broke some of the interior dash molding trying to reinstall the climate control module. They also needed to order an airbag harness (?) since they forgot to order it the first time when disassembling my steering wheel column.

      I'm glad that they are fixing all of the issues that I asked them to - I can't really complain about that - but seriously, three days? If they call me today and tell me that they need it for another night I might get a little pissy on the phone. If the rattles are still there when I pick the car up... well, let's just hope that doesn't happen

      This is why I'm attempting to fix the rattles myself. I won't be without my car for days, and I can take long drives to test my fixes.

      I understand that the car is under warranty and shouldn't have the rattles to begin with, but dealers just can't practically fix most rattles; the reward is not worth the effort.

      Got the car back yesterday -

      ALL of the issues have been resolved - I honestly couldn't be happier.
      Seriously, I urge you to take it in. It's like a whole new car now - it feels way, way more solid when there are no constant rattles. The only thing I can hear now is the engine and road noise from the tires.

      FINALLY - this feels like the car I paid for.

      Good job, VW - shame that they had to be fixed at the dealership and that this couldn't have just come from the factory. Had a FIVE page report on what they did and it took 3 days. Worth it though!
