But when I push the front passenger door's armrest outward from the side, the noise seems to stop, or at least get better, but can't figure out what's actually causing the noise.
And the door makes a short 1 second buzzing noise every time it's closed as if a spring is vibrating (no soft-close option).

I also have a ticking/squeaky noise around the NAV screen/center dash above the center vents whenever the vehicles's not on a glass smooth road. It sounds like the plastic trim pieces are flexing, so I tried pushing them in various places, but no use.

Anyone experience similar problems?
Yes on the Nav part. Many parts of my X5 squeak - door, rear view mirror, area around the nav, seats.

BMW says it's within operating parameters. Good luck.
