Hi all,

I am pretty sure there are a few articles dotted on here regarding similar noises, however when I want to find them, I can't seem to :lol:

There is a rattle/metal squeak sound coming from the back every now and then, when I drive. I have removed the parcel shelf and have had nothing loose in the boot but it is still there. Seems to sound like it could be the glass hatch??

If anyone has had similar and solved the noise could you post what you did!! Thanks!

Check the hatch hinge pins. They can work loose, it might also be a lose lock catch. Easy to adjust just mark it's present position loosen the 2 fixing bolts a little and tap towards the front of the car, effectively putting the glass tighter inwards. Just a little at a time. Tighten the bolts. And try it out.

this :)
not loose but as he explains they get a little bit of play and boy can a journey be noisy
to confirm its this open tailgate, drive for a few miles with tailgate just pulled down ie not into catch this will confirm if noise gone,obviously be sensible go on local roads no dual carriageways at 70 etc

A couple of other quick and easier things worth a try...

Re the noisy rear window catch, which might be your metallic squeaking/rattling noise, this isn't uncommon. One easy fix you may get away with (worked for me three years ago and hasn't come back since) is to spray the innards of the catch mechanism with a good lithium white grease, or similar.

The rattling at the rear, which you also thought could be the shelf, can also be. They tend to fit a bit loosely on the rear mountings that the shelf pushes on to and then pivots on. This makes the shelf rattle up and down over uneven ground/bumps. If you wrap something like black insulation tape around the plastic lugs on each side (that the shelf pushes on to) until the fit is snug, you may well find this particular annoying rattle goes away. Worked for me anyway...!

Tightened the latch slightly and lithium white greased it and now spot on, noise completely gone :thumbs:

My dad (combo - above) tried both of these and it has worked A DREAM. :thumbs:
Thank you all so much! Car journeys will be much more enjoyable now the noise is gone :D
