                My S4 has this problem,too.  I take plastic trim out and put
3M foam tape 
 inside to saperate the two plastics from each other. It's effective at
first,but lately
 that noise come out again.
                I don't expect that plastic-to-plastic noise in the car of
this price. very disappointed.
