    The rear window may be drooping slightly, is it more prominant on uneven ground?

    Wind the rear window down a little and apply slight pressure to the top of the window glass as if you were pushing it open, if it moves in a downward direction slightly then it is loose and requires tightening somehow.

    I had a similar problem, found the door had dropped slightly on it's hinges.
    I adjusted the door lock plate (on the car body) and that sorted it. Might be something similar?

    I had a problem with the tailgate on mine, the lock was rattling and squeaking. I adjusted the two bump stops on the tailgate corners which sorted it. It did sound like it was from the headlining however. Took an age to find it.
