Mine rattles somewhere in the dash, at low rpms when cold, I'm at 19000 kms, I think its due to higher engine vibration during warm up period. Wife's Golf wagon way more smoother, absolutely no rattling, way better built. Does'nt bother me that much, I'm hoping it'll go away once the engine is broken in properly. The reason I say that is when I push it to higher rpms between the gears [Italian tune up] the rattling goes away. Hope this helps.

It wont go away....I've had and still have it. Had it fixed...came back....had it fixed again, still came back after a few weeks. Hopefully you are luckier with your dealership.

Sadly I think you're right. I had mine fixed last November, stored the car for the winter, and now the rattle is back. Not nearly as bad as it was in the fall but I hear it every now and then. I'm due for my one year service next month so that will be on the fix it list.

And I still have a clicking door panel that the dealer wouldn't touch and I can't track down.

This has been driving me absolutely insane and when I googled it awhile back I couldn't find anything. I just ecstatically ran outside and shoved my hand under the hood and the bolt is missing. I was starting to come to terms with driving with the radio cranked.

Default Fixed, Thank You

I would like to thank everyone who contributed to this thread. I found the heater box screw to be loose and it would not tighten. The replacement screw part WHT004564 has a larger diameter and fit tightly. The clamp inside the car was contacting the heater box which I rotated. The rattle is gone. Without the information in this thread it might have been impossible to ever find the cause since it only happened under driving conditions. THANKS TO THE TDI CLUB AND IT'S MEMBERS!

At about 38k, my Jetta started rattling near the pedals. All the usual solutions have come up empty. Getting used to it... kinda reminds me of my Mk3 now that I think about it.
