    Default Rattling noise from rear?

    I seem to have a rattling noise from the back of my car and i'm not sure what it is. Has anyone got any ideas?

    Quite possibly the boot catch? Have a search for tailgate and you should bring up some threads on it, and how you adjust the plate to get rid of it.

    Oh, BTW Andy - if you can't get it sorted then I could give you a hand sometime before/after Christmas when I'm up. I fixed a tailgate rattle on my Signum, as well as Graeme's Vec - so have experience of both. It's not a difficult thing to do, but you sometimes have to move the plate in the opposite direction to what you think, and it can get a bit frustrating after a while!!

    I had mine in to VX a couple of months ago which they sorted by
    (they said)adjusting the rubber stoppers and the catch.Anyway its started again, so i thought i would have a go myself.But the screws on the catch are a special kind and i cant loosen them.In fact it doesn't look like they have been moved since the car was built, going off the markings.So i've adjusted the rubber stoppers again,hope this sorts it.
