    Centre console vibratiing/rattling

    Had my S3 a week or so now, and have a slight niggle. The centre console around/under the handbrake rattles when driving over rough road surfaces. Is this common on the S3?

    Perhaps there's a way of tightening it?

    No, that's definitely not normal. Sounds like something is loose under there. Unfortunately, I don't think you can get at that area without lifting the whole centre console up which involves removing the grab handles, armrest, etc.

    Check your button release on the handbrake, that is what is rattling in mine, drives me nuts but will be looked at when I'm going to have the RNS-E fitted by NHN.
