    Default Irritating noice from rear roof area

    Hi all,

    My first post....

    I have a very very irritating klicking noice from the roof area on my Vectra C 3.2 hatchback. Whenever i roll over a small bump in the road the clicking noice appear. It sounds like a loose cable banging on a metal surface, or maybe a loose joint in the bodywork.
    Itīs located at the roof area between the rear door and the C-pole, i.e. just above your head if you are sitting in the back. On both sides!
    Maybe somebody else had or have this problem? Any ideas how to fix it?

    Greetings to you all

    Thanks a lot guys! Iīve printed the FR 1516 to show my dealer workshop.
    (Iīve talked to them several times about this problem but they claim they havenīt found whatīs wrong. I suspect they just donīt bother much...)

    Do you mean the roof lining? If so follow Oilburner's How To for rear light installation, should cover what you need to do.
