I'm not a profesional but how does it sound when the A/C is on?  Almost sounds like the belt is being dragged by a bad bearing.

i puf duct tape around the latch until i can come up with a better solution.   From googling it, it is a well known issue.  Even my music couldn't block that sound out.  Was driving me crazy!


I'll get to a diy store tomorrow and get some insulation tape.

Placed a thin t-shirt over my boot hatch to stop a rattle.

You guys know how loud this sound was.  Turns out it's the trunk/boot lock!  I stuck a thin piece of a t-shirt over the lock and closed it and never heard it again!  This was after i removed the styrofoam recovery kit. Stuck it on top of the trunk cover and in the back seat and it was still doing it. My question now is PERMANENT Solution...!


Does it need tighting?  Maybe some grease?  The boot lock has like a black coating over it and as you rub your fingers over it you get this exact sound!  Why it does it when turning corners is beyond me, it must move..

That doesn't sound good.  The car hasn't reached three years old just yet.  Do you think it'll be covered by warranty?  Cost?
