Static/Electrical noise neart front passenger

Post by MozeyPanda » Fri Aug 17, 2018 8:49 am

Hi all,

I got this weird issue where it's located around the front passenger's door pin/seat belt, there is this what I describe an electrical static sound. It's either due to water or something else. Anyone heard of this or facing this?

I would also add, it could be the speaker also. It's a buzzing sound. It's not an insect lol.

Thanks,
Mo

I don't wish to alarm you but I found this the other day looking to see if I had any recall notices (as the car is new to me and I had no idea if it has been recalled for them or not).
It doesn't sound like the same issue as yours is from the passenger side but I thought it might be worth mentioning.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class (2011 - 2017)
Production: XI. 2011 - VII. 2017 | Problems / tags: accident airbag 

8. 12. 2017
Problem Description
The steering column is not sufficiently earthed. As a result, in the event of an electrostatic discharge, the driver’s airbag may be triggered when not required. This could cause an accident.
The recall affects vehicles produced between 11/2011 and 07/2017.

Mo it could be the same as what I have & it’s just rattling inside the passenger door. When you’re driving and it happens get your passenger (or lean across and do it yourself) to put pressure on the door card & see if it stops

I might take the door apart on mine & add some sort of sound deadening

It could be the B pillar were the seat belt adjuster is, I had a buzzing noise and thought it was the door trim. Fitted some felt between the B pillar plastic and adjuster plastic to fix it.
