Annoying rattle

My car developed an annoying faint rattle during it's first motorway trip. Hard to pin point but seems to be coming from inside the drivers door. Very annoying, occurs when driving over bumpy tarmac or when playing heavy bass through the speakers.

I intend to bring it up with the dealer under warranty but I'm curious if anyone else has experienced the same or similar?

I had a very bad rattle in the tailgate, only on very rough roads, Dealer dealt with it under warranty, also a rattle in the sunroof in the vented position, Dealer is awaiting parts and it will go back in for that, nothing from the doors.

Was that the tailgate gas struts which were causing the rattle? Mine seem fairly loose and I suspect that this is the noise that I hear - slow speed over bumpy surfaces.

Sorry, the dealer did not tell me what the problem was, just fixed it, I think it was the locking mechanism.

My car has exactly the same symptoms, was it repaired ??

The only sound that I now have is a buzz from the front passenger door handle. Move it even slightly and it disappears so I just wedged in a small piece of rubber as I couldn't figure out how to remove the door panel and check if it's a loose spring, or whatever. Overall though, the car is remarkably rattle-free after 15 months.

The dealer had the door card off and apparently couldn't hear the noise on a test drive afterwards, but after picking the car up the rattle is still there :(
It goes if I push lightly on the door card.

I'd take the door card off if only I knew how. The sound on mine is definitely coming from the internal door handle.

My Q2, 1.4 TFSi s-tronic developed an annoying rattle, mainly at low speeds in town, particularly on rough surfaces. It started at around 5,000 miles. It was constant and very annoying. Turns out it was the brake pads in the front and Audi have now installed some gaskets or similar and all seems fine. I'm sure I cannot be alone with this issue so if anyone has a similar problem, my experience may help.
