    Default Annoying rattle from rear of car

    Looking for some help here

    I have a 06 plate 1.8 sri vectra c that has developed an anoying ratlle from the back drivers side.

    Thought it was exhaust, it needed a hanger replaced, was done and still rattles

    have checked nothing loose in or around the boot but cant seem to find it

    It seems to stop when you apply the brakes but have no idea what it could be

    Anyone got any ideas or had a similar problem??

    I've not done the rears on my vec so not sure what the retaining clips like, but i had issues with the astra and the clip wasn't in right. Popped it back in and it was fine...

    Drive round with the handbrake up a few clicks and see if it totally goes.....
