Fixed a clunking noise in the nearside door that occured turning left/right and a speaker crackle in the offside - both were the speaker cable adaptors similar to type shown below flapping about - some double sided number plate pads stuck them in place - no more clonk / or crackle:

No real news, except to report some fails:

The speaker crackle was hiding - returned mid week after reporting the fix. Following weekend dash apart and its a duff bullet connector - I going to have to solder the connection from amplifier cable to OEM loom.
-and-
The clunking... that came back... some head scratching, and a bit more thinking... it's the passenger seat belt buckle knocking against the door card!
Making sure the belt is around the outer seat back bolster and there is no clunking, its fine with a front passenger, but if there is someone in the back when they get out it re-sets the belt off the bolster.
