    a strange tapping noise has been bothering me from the passenger seatbelt area but it seemed to come an go, for no reason at all.

    if you look on the side of the passenger seat there is a little plastic badge that says airbag on it. sometimes the the seatbelt clasp is banging off this and making this tapping noise , depending on how the passenger has adjusted there seat.

    audi should of moved the plastic badge an inch or 2 lower :)

    Similar thing happens in my Sportback when the passenger seat is empty. Depending on how the passenger adjusted the seatback, the seatbelt buckle can bang on the plastic side of the seat.

    I get it sometimes at motorway speeds, more often that not when there's a crosswind.
