    Annoying rattles etc.

    So what are the most common rattles on mk4s interior and how do you make them shut the hell up ?

    I have a few rattles which sound like they are coming from the glovebox, passenger door card, and the dash on top, like vents and VIN plate.
    How can i shut them up ?


    Also, my rear door card on the drivers side, closest to the front has come away and you can flex it atleast 5cm out, ive tried pushing it, hitting it back in place but it wont, just springs back out, any thoughts?

    Cheers

    Looks like kids is the best solution to shut the rattles up then .. unless they pull everything apart and create more rattles
