Strange Noise from driver side
When run over pothole or uneven surface, there is a "tic tic" noise coming from the round air vent or under it. I tried push the air vent hard with no improvement.
Also removed the side and undercover but really find no loosing components.
Strange thing is that it only appears with the driver side's door closed.
It sounds odd but I tried it on a quiet road several times yesterday by driving the car with the door opened ( hold it my arm), the "tic tic" gone. Close the door and run on the same road, same potholes immediately, it is back.
I'm also pretty sure it is not the contact between dashboard and door plastic making the noise as I have the side cover removed, there is no contact when I did the test.
