I'm sure there will be a remedy, but the problem is tracing what item is creating the noise. It may well be the case that driving over potholes (not difficult on today's roads) whilst someone in the rear tries to trace where the sound is emanating from.
If it is occuring internally, then it may just be some item (perhaps part of the adaptation ironmongery) which has worked loose, or if occuring from underneath - exhaust or suspension-related.
One thing worth bearing in mind, its a lot cheaper diagnosing where a sound is coming from yourself, rather than paying a garage to do the same.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
