Mk2 Focus Tailgate Rattle

6 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, i have a mk2 Focus with a rattly tailgate when going over a rough surface. It can be cured by putting tape around the striker plate for the catch but this wears away over time. Is there a permanent cure fo the problem?

Thanks.

does the striker plate feel loose at all generally? have you tried re-securing it?

no it feels fine, just it seems to allow the tailgate to move around too much hence the rattle.

basically you need to take the plastic cowling off the bootlid, and then get at the nuts, loosen then amd realign it, then tighten them back up.
