Rattle back. So tried the "electricians plastic tape" as per magenta and now appears 100% sorted. Hard to believe that much noise was emanating from such a small thing.

Quiet at last......


Glad you sorted it. It was quite an annoying rattle and once you had heard it, it wouldn't go away despite passengers saying they couldn't hear anything !
Perhaps Ford should increase the diameter of the 'loop' part rather than redesign the catch. You would have thought that Ford would have perfected such a basic fundemental part of the car by now !

I've had this rattle for a good while now, it's been totally me mad. I forced my Brother to sit in the back while I drove about and shouted "identify that noise, soldier!", still couldn't find it. I tried adhesive felt all over the place, removing the parcel shelf, folding rear seats down, adjusting the rubber stops on the boot etc...

Now I've come across this thread I think this will fix it. I noticed that when I drive over speed bumps my boot rattles as if the 'U' part of the boot mechanism on the body needs adjusting lower to tighten the boot up. I have some very thin adhesive felt which I'll also wrap around the 'U', hopefully the boot will still close.

i have the same issue and unfortunately mine didn't work by taping the boot mechanism. I took apart the plastic in the weekend and as far as I can tell, the creaking comes from the hatch, somewhere in the low right, but somehow between the two parts of metal that makes the hatch(i don't know if I made myself understood). After I took the plastic off, there are some holes there, can I put some spray, or foam, or something inside the metal? any other ideas?

I too have a creaking boot and have found it is the tailgate trim vibrating against the back screen.I put some cloth tape between the glass and the trim and no creaking. :D

When I pull out of my drive I have a squeak/creak noise that at first sounded like a shock absorber not working properly but after shaking my rear seats it appears to be them not fitting into their latches properly so I'm gonna try some heavy duty Raja tape at work tomorrow over all the metal "loops" (boot and seats) to see if it stops :angry:
