    Default Anyone driving their car without the parcel shelf?

    Hi all, Ive finally had enough of the stupid rear parcel shelf!! Ive taken the damn thing out! Bit extreme i know. But what can you do? I travel 400 miles a week to work and last night i finally snapped and taken the ****** out. Car running smooth now, no knocking!. Depending on the road im travelling, there was always a different noise coming from the rear. How many times ive stopped the car to check underneath god knows. I put the music up to drone out the noise, still i could hear it. Had enough now. Anyone else having the same problem? My car is a SRI CDTI 1.9 PRE FACELIFT

    A bit extreme, if the rear parcel shelf is rattling about surely that can be easily fixed with some black self adhesive foam strips.

    Bit noisy(road noise) from the rear without the parcel shelve, my rear seat compartment door rattles more than the parcel shelve.

    ive had the same problems as you about 4 years ago the dronning noise is the tyres on the back
    i bought 2 goodyear excellence tyres for the back noise gone now

    the parcel shelf i also had the rattle
    solved by putting a very small piece of cloth on both sides where you fit the parcel shelf in to the car

    I also took it out only because I have 2 12" 1000w subs making it rattle. My windows are also tinted to no one can see in the back.

    get 2 new tyres on the back and your dronning will go
    its such a better drive when you change them the dronning noise goes


    I just wrapped a small piece of cloth around my mounts,were you slot the parcel shelf in to the car
    i get no rattle now

    Got new tyres few months back, the car is quieter since taking out the panel. I'll try wrapping some cloth around the mounts. The rattling wouldnt be so bad if i didnt drive the car so far daily. Maybe i could live with it. But this has been going on now since i bought the car at the beginning of the year. The tyres have been balanced,aligned. Everything underneath the car is spot on. springs,arms etc... Just that shelf in the back. Arghhh so annoying
    Thanks for the links, i'll read through them now
