Re: Yet another noise...possibly tailgate? Not sure

Hi again,

I've found the source of the noise

I just spent 10mins banging about and testing the movement in some of the interior trim panels around the boot area, and was ready to give up.

I shut the boot, but thought I hadn't closed it properly so I pulled on the handle to check. The exact same creaking noise came from the boot catch...

So I'm going to re-grease the catch/mechanism to see if that cures it...
I don't think there's anything wrong with it as it operates fine and keeps the boot firmly shut.

I have some spray grease which I used for the sunroof runners but it seems a bit too watery...I'll try and get hold of some proper stuff I'm sure my Dad has some...

Thanks for the advice,
Currently in andyellis111's garage:
