Renault Clio 3 - Rattle From Tailgate

Clio Mk III Phase 1 2009

Recently a high-tone metallic-sounding rattle has started coming from the boot area. It occurs at 20mph and below. It happens when the car is moving on anything other than a perfectly smooth surface.

We think we've tracked it down to somewhere along the area around the bottom of the glass but don't know whether it's related to the glass or something inside the bootlid. When the car is stationary, pressing the bottom of the glass either from outside or inside can cause the same noise. We know it's not the boot struts because we've tried driving around with them removed.

It's possible that this has started with the cold weather.

Has anyone else had this problem? Got a fix?

If not then it's yet another trip to the dealer. They can fix the dashboard creak and the fan tinkling noises as well.

Currently in i-am-andrew's garage:
