    I have had this issue for quite a while now, I have tried everything I've seen on here and other forums, but to no avail. I made a video so you guys can hear it. Please help, I don't want to "just live with it", I feel like this computer should not be having this issue. Thanks :)

    It's most likely these thingies inside the MBP which make contact with the bottom lid, all over the Logic board there are small (few mm) Contacts which make contact with the bottom lid to ground the bottom lid with the rest of the machine, these are spring loaded and this can cause this sound.

    I've removed the middle one of those - I saw a thread somewhere that had a lot of people doing so and decided to try it, that was months ago. Nothing adverse has happened, but is there anything I can do about it?
