    Can you give us more information?

    Loose in what way? Loose at the mounting point on the hatch or the bodywork? Are you getting a funny knocking or clunking noise?

    Is it the hatch or saloon?

    My dad's hatch has a bit of a clunk which got better after replacing the rear arb bushes and the rear upper control arms.

    What I noticed is that if you open the boot fully, and then push the lid slightly further open, you get a clonk and movement at both ends of the struts. Also appears to be slight movement in the hinge on the body as well.
