Noise is related to road surface..smooth noise.Tightened adjustment on tailgate catch..better but still rattles on rough roads.
Loop part of mechanism on boot edge "wobbles"
is this part of the design?
How do I shut it up? niggly fault spoils the enjoyment of a rather nice fairly quiet car
FIXED.sprayed Li grease onto hinges etc
success!! tapping gone!!
