The astra as long as I can remember has always had the air filter housing mounted like that. Whether on the k it is mounted too close to the bracket and wing. Never experienced noise from there myself, hope it sorts it for you .

dont know if this will help mate but i had a mondeo 2.0 petrol several years ago (04 reg) and it developed a tapping noise, it was the flaps on the air intake manifold. got a new manifold from ford and local garage to fit it and problem solved.

Tried the solution with sponges stuffed down the side of the air box...didn't make a bit of difference :P.
I'll mention to the VX dealership when it goes in for the recall in June about the air intake flaps on the manifold see if they can check it out!
So far, still there ...no solution yet!
