Hello again folks,

It appears that my boot is rattling over bumpy ground. i think this is the plastic cover ofer the rear of the hatchback as when you hit it it rattles. however does anyone else have a similar problem? or know if anything to fix it?

Have something to contribute?

theres 2 possibilities 1 is that plastic cover a few cable ties sorts that one out those silly plastic screws are useless second is the rear bumper if you look underneath you will see the same plastic screws along the bottom of the bumper they dont hold well and the bumper moves at the bottom i took the plastic screws out and replaced all with nuts and bolts 10mm will do the job just short stubby ones
