    Default Parcel shelf rattle

    Any ideas how to stop this? would silicone spray help, or should I wrap some sort of material around the two "prongs" that slide into the mountings?

    Could be the bootllid itself mate. Mine did this, I just adjusted the lock catch to make it shut tighter.

    My parcel she;f rattles and bibrates - especially when driving ove the stippled road surface near pedestrian crossings.

    One way is to fold a peice of cardboard over a few times and wedge it between the parcel shelf front edge and the back of the centre rear seat upright.

    Unsightly, but effective. I haven't found any other way of solving this annoyance.

    Tie a knot in it.
    If the string that holds it up is alittle shorter it lifts the parcel shelf off the resting bit. Tie a knot or 2 on each side and the self can not bouce up and down on the resting bit = no rattle. I have had to do this is every hatchback I have ever owned.

    Try looking at the rubber feet on each side of the front edge of the shelf. They cushion impact with the plastic shelves they sit on. They need to be perfectly square with the shelf surface and they have a tendency to loosen over time. I fixed mine solidly to the side edges of the shelf with super glue so that they would sit perfectly on the shelf. Worked for me.
