    Vibration / Knocking from the dash

    I got an 02 A3, I noticed that sometimes when I start the car the dash vibrates noisly, I also get a knocking sound front right of the dash when going over bumps. I managed to stop both noises by pushing a sock in between where the dash meets the front screen, though it doesnt look pretty and blocks the vents, anyone else had this and how did they fix it. I dont really want to get the whole dash out

    Anyway wish I had found this site earlier, looks like Ive had most of the common A3 problems though at the time I thought it was just me

    Mine has also developed an annoying rattle somewhere between the blower vents in the centre of the dash and the screen demister.

    The aircon has also developed a 'clonk' somewhere deep in the dash that only happens within a couple of minutes of the car being started, this is then followed by a nice blast of cold (outside i presume) air around my shins.

    Within a couple of minutes the aircon reverts to pumping out warm air as normal.

    Any idea what the problem could be, or even a solution?
    Thanks

    (Sorry to hijack thread, but they seem similar problems!)
