    Maybe the flap closing, try it in E mode. Does it only do it when the recircluating button is on?

    the sounds happens :

    every time i turn on/off the key, i mean give the power to the car electric device,but not turn on the engine. doesn't matter the heating is on or off.
    every time i turn on/off the recircluating button
    every time i switch on/off the heating, i mean the "OFF" button.

    but the the knock sounds from "turn on" is different from the sounds from "turn off". sounds like something knocked from two different way.

    If the knock is coming from under the dash it could be one of the air distribution flaps sticking - I had this a few months ago and was able to diagnose which motor using VCDS (VAG-COM). On investigation I found that the motor was OK but the operating lever had jammed.

    Removed the motor (3 screws IIRC) and separated it from the mechanism which I checked was free to move by hand and then refitted the motor to the mechanism. That's all I had to do.
