    Default Hatch rattle, faulty latch?

    Signum 56 with 14000 m. So not much wear. Been to dealers 5 times to adjust the hatch. Last time instructed them to adjust the striker plate and on collection gave me the usual " see how you get on with it" line. Before I'd left the car park the lid was rattling just as before. Is it possible that the mechanism is faulty and needs replacing? you'd think that having had 5 goes at it they would by luck alone have cured it. Would really appreciate any advice. Cheers,Mike.

    Adjust the plate or the rubber bumbs stops in the corners by turning them - they unscrew to hold the boot lid
