Smile Re: Renault Clio 3 - Rattle From Tailgate

Hi there , i also had this annoying problem when i first got the car and eventually fixed it. I thought first off that it was coming from the rear wiper motor area and tried everything to sort it out, to no avail. However, when i noticed that when the boot was shut, I could still press it down a little I began to blame it on the boot not being fully shut and in fact the latch is jumping up and down in its fastener. If you open the boot, take off the plastic panel which cover the latch, you will see the latch where it is attached to the body with 2 bolts. By moving the latch down the boot shut much better and has not rattled since!!!. Apply a little grease as well to help. P.S. -it is trial and error and doesn't take a lot of adjusting, but it sorted my annoying tailgate rattle. Hope this helps.
