Well, my seat began to squeak. I'm a 5-f-10, 165 lb guy for the last 20 years.

The leons had a similar issue where the perspex in front of the dials wasn't screwed in properly and rattled under low revs.

Next time you're in the car press your finger on the perspex and see if you still get the ratttle.

Might be the same issue.

Mine goes in tomorrow for 48 hours, hopefully they can resolve the issue in that time.

Dropped car off this am. Due an update tomorrow, on a side note - £2500 excess at Listers or £12 per day cost to the consumer, is it me or is that expensive.

Not sure on the excess but I was asked for £10 at a VW garage back in 2009.

Just had a call back from the dealership. So the good news is that they believe they have located the rattle - in fact there were two.

One coming from the instrument panel, which needed some packing. The second was a screw that hadn't been tightened properly in the steering column which eventually came free. The resulting movement has meant some cosmetic damage (I can only assume to the plastic trim) so they have ordered a new part under warranty ETA 3 - 4 weeks.

Fingers crossed thats the issue resolved.
