    Default Boot Rattle

    Well got the car throught the MOT today no bother.But on the way to my brothers 40th party tonight I seem to have developed a rattle in the boot. I thought it was a shocker rattling but on further inspection at 1am I found the boot to be a little bit loose on one corner and this is what is causing the anoying rattle.Does the boot adjust if so how or is there another cure as I remember hearing about this as a common fault on the Vectra C.

    Check the slam stop rubbers Tel, Black Dome topped rubber bush, with the shape of a bolt head, they can be turned by hand to level up the boot lip when closed

    Cheers for that Robbie I will have a look at them I did see them but I did not know if they moved so will give them a bit of a twist in the morning. Time for bed I thinks now as I have had 4 hours sleep since Wednesday night so me thinks its a lay in for me in the morning unless my little princess dives on me in the morning as I told her we will wash the car and she loves the hosepipe bit.

    The stoppers actually just pull out or psh in, the large nut locks/unlocks them with about a quarter turn, you can turn this bolt by hand if you've got strong fingers. The stoppers will 'click' out, just try a couple of clicks to start with and lock the nut up before testing as the stopper will just get 'clicked' back up.
