    Default Adjusting the rear hatch

    Might need to adjust the striker plate on the car as I seem to be getting some scraunchy noises on some potholes etc and see a bit of play in the hatch when I check it.

    How do you remove the rear plastic cover is it clipped into place and then how do I adjust the striker I think I see 2x torx bolts?

    Thanks muchly

    got you, yes it would be but there are no fixings as such on the plastics, remove boot rubber along the length, lift carpet out or fold over, point outwards the securing rings and tug towards front of the car and then it will lift out. HTH

    Just a tip - Pencil Mark the existing position of the striker plate before un-doing the torx then it is easier to judge.
