    Question Rattle from rear of Car ?

    My Vectra has a rattle from the rear suspension boot area when going over medium to large bumps or uneven roads .
    Funny thing is if i go down hill the noise stops lol

    I've read up on the shocks or drop links loads of great info there

    I Didn't notice anything on the test drive as it was all smooth roads
    The car's done 30,000 miles and I've had it 2 days.
    I got it from a main Vauxhall dealer with a full Network Q guarantee.

    Anyone know which one it could be (Shocks or Drop links) or any think else

    At first i though it was the spare wheel rattling about but I've padded that

    Still love the Vectra it drives great apart from the rattle in the rear

    check the boot is shut firm.. normally it'll be the lock striker plate being a little too high, and letting the boot rattle on the plastic stops.. usually undoing the two torx fixings on the striker and lowering it will be enough to hold the boot tighter..

    Thanks all for the great info

    I Checked the rear boot is shut firm it seams nice & firm

    But i did find the two rear seats where not locked into the locks & most of the rattle has gone just a bit left to trace now

    I've also checked the tyre pressures, they were all over the spot from 25 up to 36 18" wheels 225/45/18
    set them to 36 all round now and she handles great & not to much tyre noise

    So much for Network Q 114 point check

    I even found some BLUE-TACK holding the top parcel shelf bracket on (the bit on the string)

    hmmm the 114 point check's i've seen done sometimes don't even involve more than a quick squint round the car and sit down in the office with a brew filling the sheet in....

    mind you, not all dealers are the same.. some actually have the car in the workshop when the inspect it..

    TBH, the netQ check is just for obvious stuff.. the real strenght is the yrs 'no quibble' warranty.. that picks up and sorts the faults for you..

    All fixed now it turned out to be my Boot catch

    But it sounded like the suspension drop link or top Bush

    The Dealer couldn't have been more helpful which makes a change

    I've got a similar kind of thing. The rear seats don't seem to latch too well, and I'm pretty sure it's them as it's sometimes coming form over my left shoulder, sometimes my right.

    Default got noise

    I also got some noise on the rear of the car right after a 3rd visit to the dealer since they couldnīt get my brakes just right. I took it to a Precision Tune Shop and they discovered that some lock was missing from the brake pads area. Pretty scary.
    This caused a rattle noise on bumpy roads, speed bumpers, etc.
