    climate control valves opening ? i can hear mine clicking sometimes like if the stepper motors reach the limit then they tap the back of the dash like a drumming noise about 3-4 clicks on startup

    Take the glovebox off and see mate - takes 10 minutes to do. You will need some torx type socket set/screwdriver.

    Well i had a good fiddle around, and i cant find where on earth the knocking is coming from. I think it might be coming from around the speaker area. However dont really want to remove the door card, it sounds like there is something hanging and then knocking against something when im driving. I dont think its a suspension issue as it happens all the time. its got me stumped

    Removing the door card is really easy - four screws and you're done.

    Im starting to think this is suspension related. Due to the fact when i drive over really smooth roads i dont get any knocking. However on your average road i do.
