    The drivers side door handle has got a really horrible and loud rattle, when you touch the handle the top part moves a couple of mm.
    It now rattles as you turn the stereo up and can be heard in the car.

    What are my options?
    Do i need to replace the handle or can i just put some sealant or something in the gap to stop the handle moving around? All help is appreciated

    inside handle or outside handle ?
    the outside ones can come loose, there should be a thread on here how to tighten it up using a credit card.
    the clip is under the handle, lock the car lift the handle up and push the clip home with the card.

    I have had this issue about 4 times now but it's on warranty so goes back to Audi who replaced the whole door handle AMD lock the first timewhich only lasted about 4 weeks. It doesn't do it now finally but I know how annoying it is, I was just gonna seal it if it happened again.

    Good luck with it mate.

    mate, your a legend. Got a chance to register to that forum and read the thread this afternoon. Went straight out and tried it and it worked a treat. No more rattle. Thanks again, thats one less annoyance in my life.

    Worked fine for me aswell, you need to be a member of the other forum for it to work. I registered first and then tried the link.
