    Default noisy parcel shelf

    Hi all,

    The parcel shelf in my GSI rattles and chirps when i'm driving along... it does seem to calm down after a long drive, but once you've opened and shut the tailgate you're back to square one...

    Does anybody have any advice... other than jamming in little bits of paper everywhere..!!??

    Many thanks,

    Ian B

    don't know to be honest - i'll have a look in the morning...

    is there rubber all over the underside of the shelf or just in the area of the locating pins?

    thanks,

    Check the little lugs that the shelf hinges on - when I bought mine one was missing on one side - might seem a bit obvious but I didn't notice for a while lolol
