    Default creaking signum tailgate

    had my car for nearly 2 years and all that time there has been an annoying creak from the boot area . so today i decided to get to the bottom of it . after an hour of stripping bits and putting back creak still there . the creak wouldnt appear if i bounced the back end with the boot open only when closed . so i greased the hinges and still creak still there when i closed the boot and pressed on it it creaked . where the latch connects when closed there are 2 centralising blocks about an inch square , they where very dry so a blob grease and hey presto creak gone ! car now silent when driving - happy days .23122012078.jpg the culprits .

    Brilliant! It's always satisfying when you find and remove unwanted noises, could be a great help to other members with creaky bootlids too.
