Seat belt knocking - Front passenger side

This is seat belt specific to the passenger side where it touches the b-pillar , felt tape maybe an option for the b-pillar too, although i think if the passenger seat belt is stored back in a higher location rather then at the seat level it may work. Will post back tomorrow

I have the same rattle and also a creak where, I think, the foremost part of the drivers door touches the side of the dash.
Felt tape is going on in the next few days. Door creak is not easy to locate so may be difficult to resolve...

no option to keep the seat belt held at a higher level. So I used felt and managed to fix the knocking sound

Withourt wishing to hijack this thread, the creak I get at the drivers door, which is not significant, and only when cold, appears to be coming from this triangle, where there is movement against the door:


The triangular piece of trim securely fitted on the passenger side. The drivers side has some play in it, where the bottom moves in and about anbout 3 or 4 mm. Is that normal, does anyone else get some play in this piece of trim?
