Postby ZeroDrift » Mon Feb 13, 2012 7:20 pm

I don't actually have a how to, but more of a request. Anyone have any tips to keep the rear hatch from rattling? Permanent solutions would be preferred! Thank you!

try replacing the rubber stoppers on both sides that support the hatch when it's closed.. you'll see it on the side.. it's held by two screws.. try to avoid stripping the screws when removing..

Drives me crazy too , I read the tsb and I just had all that crap apart to do a power trunk pop and got too behind on time to look at it ... next time in i may look at it. I havent heard it for a bit though. Last time was after the trip to Rhode Island when the roads beat the hell out of her ...

My rattle was coming from the hatch struts- one was a bit loose. After I tightened it up, all was fine.
