    Default How can i sound deaden the boot area to stop viberating??

    Guys i have just upgraded by boot subs and have a real good sound now but I now need to find away to get rid of the horrible rattling sound thats coming from the area around the rear bumper and boot lock area..
    This seems to be the only area that is causing the noise and im not sure of how to go about loosing it Ive tried tightening the boot lid via the adjustment but this hassnt helped! The worst area seems to be the rear bumper itself cos if i put pressure on it, the rattle goes away dramatically!!
    Im guessing this must be a common place for this issue on the vectra so maybe someone else has found away to loose this! Dont really want to go guessing and would be happier to get some dirrection first if possible..
    Cheers rich

    Thanxs for that paul, tbh, i already have looked at this kindof thing but im more interested in were it should be fitted.. It seems that the bummer itself is viberating the most and the area behind were the boot button is. Im not sure how i can use this stuff in those areas with the best results as it seems the viberation is coming from inside the bottom of the hatch and somewere behind the bumper but im not sure were>>> I was hoping that someone might know were the viberation is most likely coming from and how to sort it. I would of thought it would of been the floor pan ect but these areas seem ok .. It all seems to be behind the top of the rear bumper and seems like rattling loose metal??? I can seem to find what is actually causing the rattling if you know what i mean ..

    Could be the plastic clips that attach the rear bumper to the metal bar behind it. They can loosen over time and no longer fit snugly.

    I would just fit the stuff to the back of the panel that is rattling. However be careful of wasting it. My rear door cards are rattling but it sounded like it came from the front. I sound deadened the front doors plus cards and whilst it drastically improved the sound the rattle remains. I was confused until I removed the rear door to have a fiddle and the rattle stops! I now have the stuff to do my rear doors as well. But believe me it really sounds like it is the front door cards, even if you sit in the back!!
