    Default Knocking from Rear - When over bumps & un-even roads

    Dear all..

    Im brand new to the vectra-c, just bought mine a week ago. 54 plate 1.9cdti SRI..

    BUT

    Getting a slight knocking sound from the rear / boot area when going over bumps or un-even surfaces. Gone through everything in the boot and even took the shelf out but can't find any loose panels and nothing loose around the spare tyre area. It sounds like a sort of knocking/something loose sound when you go over bumps coming directly from the rear.

    It's not the sort of sound you'd normally notice but with the radio off you do and its doing my nuuttttt!!

    Anyone that can help and a few suggestion to go through to eliminate the problems so I can find directly what is causing it.

    Many thanks,

    Breeza

    BOOT LID CATCH

    Breeza, open your boot, i bet your tailgate has come a little lose. You will need a torx or alan key i think and loosen the catch and move it 1-2mm towards the ground and tigthten and then close your boot and i bet that does the trick.

    Yo Pimm!!!

    Yeah did that just before I came back online and saw your post.. didn't see the lil notches on the side of the adjuster first so dropped it all the way down and wondered why the car wasn't regestering the boot lid shut but then soon realised the lock has to click twice to be secure and register and then saw the lil notches... durrrr meee.. been having some silly moments!!

    Next job is the wheels, and suspension if they're gonna make it look like its on stilts by the time I get some 18', 19's on there.
