    Default Noisy parcel shelf

    Has anyone had a problem with a rattley parcel shelf in a facelift vectra hatch? If so what did you do to get it to stop rattling.

    One possibility is the little rubber feet on the outer corners which can loosen with time. They have to sit perfectly square on the plastic it sits on, otherwise the shelf can rattle.

    Cured on my current and previous Vectras by 'reseating' the feet and supergluing them to the parcel shelf.

    I put 2 small foam pads on the triangle shaped plastic bits on the edge of the parcel shelf so when the tailgate is shut it sits nice and tight and now no more rattle :-)

    Thanks for the tips will try both I think. It doesn't bother me unless I turn the radio off but annoying all the same

    My car had one missing, and the other one was loose. Just replaced both, now no rattles while driving
