Hbroz Solved!

Thought I'd post an update in case it benefits others. I've wasted a lot of time looking at the driver seat area.

Cianpars and Algie you were both right!

I don't have a driver side sunglass holder
just a grab handle above the door. Decided to lift it slightly when the noise appeared and he buzzing went! Some small cut foam or similar under the grab handle will fix it.

2 people were convinced it was the driver seat.

Cheers guys

Hbroz Thanks Algie.bI got someone to sit in the back and they are convinced it's from the top right side of the driver's seat. But I'll check again

Hbroz Thanks guys for the information.

Cianpars the noise is present when I'm moving from the driver's airbag.

cianpars Does it buzz when you are stopped as well as moving? Does it buzz when the ignition is on but the engine not running? This might give you aclue as to whether it is an electrical buzz or a vibration.

Airbag is a possibility, but also perhaps the seat belt mechanism.

Buzzes and rattles can be quite hard to track down sometimes. They can even come from a different part of the car to where they sound like they are coming from.

Buzzing noise from driver side airbag area

This intermittent noise is driving me crazy! Can be described as a faint electrical buzz noise that comes from the top door side of the driver seat. I can hear it over my right shoulder side. I presume it's the airbag?

Any ideas or similar problems?
