    Default Rear Creaking noise

    I know a few members have been having troubles with creaking noises at the back of their cars.I also had this problem.I have had the Field Remedy 1516 done on my car but then this horrible creaking noise occured after.I done a few things last weekend and it has now gone.The noise i had was more of a creaking than a knocking noise.Anyway here goes

    1st i undone both the screws that hold the boot on which are located under the roof lining at the back of the car.i undone them and one screw jolted sideways as if it was under alot of pressure. i then positioned the boot and tightend them back up(very tricky on ur own)

    2ndthing i done was adjust the boot stoppers that are on either side of the boot.i also placed some lubricant on the stoppers. Slight adjustment of the boot cath as well(about the 50th adjustment to it in the last 4 months)

    3rd. Behind the bumper underneath the car there is a metal bar that goes from one side of the car to the other. this sits very close to the bumper itself.On mine there was alot of stones that had been wedged down the back of this metal bar putting pressure on the bumper.I got a slight creaking noise while clearing the stones out.Sounds stupid i know but if the bumper has pressure on it then it will creak when the chassis bends(maybe i dunno )


    Anyway that is what i done and the car has been creak free for the last week. i thought id post this for the people who still have problems. i hope it helps
