Hi guys!

My steering column recently started making an annoying rattling sound when driving over just about any uneven surface (which is just about every road in Norway). I have tried adjusting the steering wheel and putting pressure on the different dash/steering wheel cover pieces without any success.

The only thing that seems to help is opening up the steering wheel adjustment lock. Whenever it is open the rattling stops. Has anyone heard about this issue before or have any suggestions about how to fix it? (of course this happens just as my warranty expires)

A3 8P 2009 if that matters.
