    Harters, could you upload your video/audio of this sound? I think I might have heard a similar sound from the back of the car.

    I will try and upload the clip to Photbucket and share it for you πŸ™‚

    Harters, that is a really interesting post, my car has developed a rear end rattle when I go over bumps. I don’t think it is the suspension as I sometimes hear it when the front wheels go over a bump and the rattle is definitely coming from the rear, although it occurs more frequently when the rear wheels go over bumps. Eventually I will get around to taking it in to my dealer.

    I couldn’t get Photobucket to work, but hopefull this will.

    You will hear the noise of the hydraulic rams as I open and close the tailgate so ignore that, but you will then notice the light metallic clicking.

    Sometimes you will only hear it once or twice, but later in the video I managed to get it going for quite a few clicks.

    Great, glad it worked for you.

    Annoying isn’t it and temperature dependant too πŸ˜‰

    Looks like your car needs some welding too. I can’t believe different Zoe feels now the problem has been sorted.

    @big277wave – If you have a rattle from the rear then it could well be the tailgate catch. You can try out my experiment which was to wrap a piece of insulation tape around the catch loop on the rear slam plate to see if that stops the noise like it did for me. As soon as I showed this to my dealer they said we know about that problem and will fit a modified part and it has been silent ever since πŸ™‚

    I’ll give it a go, how many turns of tape did you put on it?

    Remeber and try my easy fix too, seems there is more than 1 possible source of rattles. πŸ™‚
