Loud Snapping or Popping or Tapping Noise From Front Passenger Side

I'm not sure how to describe this noise. It is not a rattle.. It sounds like a finger snap but with a plastic feel. Something like that. I think it is coming from the door panel or could be from the windscreen pillar or door pillar.

It happens when the car goes over uneven surfaces or goes in an angle over steep driveways. It feels like something is flexing and popping out.

The weird thing is when someone sits on the front passenger seat, the noise completely disappears..

Anyone had this before?

If the noise occurs during velocity changes i.e when coming to a stop or setting off then it may be this issue:

I had the snapping noise for a few months and this was it. Just needs to be greased.

it's not the subframe I already had that fixed..

could it be the front suspension or bushings? are there any known defects on them?
