Re: very fast tapping sound (kobe82)

this sound he is experiencing is probably not the normal sound that everyone is used to hearing. there has been some reports of a tapping/rattling sound coming from the glove box area. I have it on my new gli and my other salesman has it on his 2.0t. it sounds more like a loose plastic piece rattling. Our service department put in a insulation kit(sorry, don't have the part numbers handy) and the sound has gone away. The sound would only seem to be there when you were stopped and the car was in drive, like you were waiting to pull out into traffic. If you put the car in neutral or park it seemed to go away, it also seem to go away if you made the rev's go up just a little bit. i've been in lots of the new gli's and 2.0t and haven't heard it in all of them but have experienced it in at least 4 of them. Just my two cents~
