    I would think it would have to. My car is still within warranty but they've just had to replace the whole glovebox housing as it used to vibrate horribly at certain speeds. Took them ages to pin the rattles down which means I'm not flavour of the month in there right now, but as long as you have warranty they should have an obligation to attend to your vehicle in whatever capacity is required.

    Just checked my Audi approved multi point approved check certificate.

    Number 137, check for interior trim rattles!
    Well either the engineer was stone deaf or this hasnt been done, although a tick is in the box.

    Also,
    Number 106, check and adjust tyre pressures..NSF was at 42 psi, OSF was 32 psi which is the correct pressure according to the book.

    Becoming a little suspicious about the whole Audi approved certificate..
