    Hi All,

    I’m getting on just fine with my new 8V S3 that I picked up last November, however it does have an annoying rattle. My car is a November 2016 facelift model.

    Research on here suggests it’s the trim surrounding the headlight switch which is actually a knee airbag I think?! I can’t find any guides or suggestions for how I can refit this cover to stop the rattling. It’s a common fault and my car isn’t under warranty any more. If I apply pressure to the knee/airbag cover whilst it’s creaking, I can get the noise to stop.

    Does anyone have any removal or tips to stop it creaking?

    Many thanks and stay safe.
