    Question Noise from Rear

    I hope someone can help with this or has had a similar problem.

    When driving over bumps or uneven ground - My 06 Signum has a creak/ rattle from the rear. It sounds like the tailgate area or similar. It has only developed this recently. I have checked the basics - no loose trim and the spare wheel is all bolted down properly. It sounds like something moves as the body flexes over bumps.

    I have the Elec Sunroof - could this be part of the problem?

    Is my car 'flexing' and creaking from the rear?

    Help - its annoying me!

    Matt

    Try the rear seat hinges and release latches.
    I had a similar prob on another car and it was the seat hinges.
    could also be tha tailgate hinges.

    Vehicle : 2.0l CDTi Bi-Turbo Insginia Sports Tourer

    Trim : Vx Line Nav Sri

    Engine : 2.0

    Year : 2014

    Default

    Had the same problem on my old 2.0 DTi.
    Basically, the tailgate rattles. I stuck 2, 3 inch long and 1 inch wide, 1/4 inch thick foam strips on using double sided sticky tape to the rear of the boot, near the edges; one on each side. Just to give that bit of a forced seal for the boot to push against.
    This problem noisey creak did my head in for around a year before I finally sorted it.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Ghostrider,

    That is great advice.

    Though I am hoping Vaux will be able to sort it out under Warranty - after all the car is 10months old - surely they can engineer a fix - without having to resort to fitting foam....

    Will see after a visit tomorrow to Vaux for the 20K Service.

    Have you tried untwisting the little buffers on the bootlid to make the shut tighter?

    Thanks Vid,

    will try that - but again - not exactly sure if it is the bootlid....

    Creaking/ rattling sound is def N/S area could be the rear door or the tailgate though. It might even be the rear seat?

    Anyway Vaux can have a look.

    Cheers - matt

    My Signum use to crack and rattle from the O/S rear - Vauxhall were convinced it was the roof panels flexing and a field teccy and a chassis bloke from Luton said it was - welding and resin didn't work and in the end they said they had no fix so the dealer gave a full refund trade-in on the Veccy i have now

    Have to add that this was on a 3yr old car......
