Have you checked the boot lid itself closes tight as the catch could be rattling against the lock. Alternatively the jack in the spare wheel well may be loose.

Bit of a drag up but check the heatshield underneath the boot, near your exhaust.

 

I have a rattle on mine when I closed the boot/driving along and it's a loose heat shield around the back box.

On the old mk1's the actual boot catch used to wear down after a few years and therefore create a rattle within the mechanism. This could be solved by either changing the catch (held in by a couple of torx screws IIRC) or temporarily by bulking out the catch with insulation tape or something similar (until it wears through). Not sure if the same thing happens on the MK2 also?

for anyone whom it may affect, I have noticed that in my boot lid, where it has previously been removed with little care, the metal clips that lock it in place can come loose, and can rattle around in the boot trim.

 

I found this a while ago, but as this thread references noise in the boot, I thought it may be a suitable location to mention in case its any use!
