    Default Strange sound in the boot area

    Just remembered that when I was fitting a fuse into the rear (boot)fuse panel , I could hear this very faint , what I can only describe as a 'Rythmic Tinkling' sound , I know the power sounder is around there and wondered if it was coming from there as it was quite difficult to actually pinpoint it, anyone else noticed/ heard this?
    Cheers Pete

    Nop but you could look for any loose stuff on the side compartments or in the spare wheel hole

    No issues at the back. I've been trying for 2 yrs to completely erradicate all the squeakes and creaking noises on mine.

    Pleased to say its pretty much 99.99% silent now after many fixes, just one little mouse which I can faintly hear occasionally when on rough road surface. Sounds like its coming from front right side of instrument panel, but from experience it could be from anywhere. Its quite surprising how your ears can deceive you, re. where noise direction in concerned.

    The noise I'm talking about is with engine off , tailgate up and my head in the boot, this is the only time I could hear it, as I was fitting a fuse at the time, very strange!!

    Is there a rear electric fuel pump?

    Peter Griffin: Ah, c'mon, Lois, isn't 'bribe' just another word for 'love'?

    It could be a relay clicking open and closed.

    There is, but as said this noise is with ignition off in fact no keys in the ignition, I do think it's coming from the powersounder and either it's shot or it's just a typical noise they make upon recognition of the tailgate being open somehow, god knows, anyway not too bothered about it as it's so faint can't hear it at all in the cabin, just curious really.

    I have hears this on mine. I thought it was something "counting" down the time so the boot would "auto lock", after I think 5 minutes after you shut the boot?. I might be wrong, I would be intersted to know the answer too.
