    Default (another) Rather annoying sound from boot post..

    Hello

    I have searched and looked at a numerous threads about boot rattle, and have tried the below

    repositioned boot latch
    put padding down the side of the parcel shelf supports
    checked for missing weld on C pillar
    drove without parcel shelf on
    checked for loose items in storage compartments
    checked spare wheel/well for loose items

    but I still am getting the annoying noise, its fine till I hit the 1st patch of bad road on a journey, on smooth road its fine but its driving me mad... it sounds like I have Rolf Harris in the boot playing his wobble board, with a clunk every now and then.

    Is there anything else that I can possibly check/causes

    Thanks

    Dave

    I had a 'chitter' from the rear of my old Vec, but it had been involved in an accident prior to my ownership, so this could be a problem?

    Next time it happens touch the brakes and see if it stops. The rear pads can rattle in the carriers. I had to make up a couple of shims for my pads to stop the annoying rattle.

    Possibly Upper rear control arms. To check, with the car sitting on the ground put your hands in between the rear wheel arch and grab the rear of the tyre. Now pull the top of the tyre as hard as you can towards yourself rocking it back and forward. If you can hear a Knock Knock Knock the bushes on the Upper control arm are away, Do this on both sides.

    Think you have hit the jackpot, just been out and tried. passenger side moves more than drivers side, and you can hear a clunk clunk as your tugging it....

    Will have to look into replacing them, hope fully that will cure it...

    Thanks your a star pal..
