    Rattling from the Rear

    Hi guys - anybody else suffer from this? Been into an Audi dealer where I thought it was just the parcel shelf and they would sort it, turns out they actually replaced some rear linkages on the suspension. Got it back and still the same.

    I have experimented with taking the parcel shelf out which helped a little but not 100%, currently I am riding round with the small sun screen up which seems to help. All in all, I'm not convinced.

    Has anybody else this problem? Any ideas on a simple fix?

    Thanks in advance.

    is tailgate spaced properly on the bumpstops? how about the cover that goes over the spare wheel? mine bounces around if nothing heavy in boot.

    I had the same rattling and mine was actually fixed by rear linkages.

    Just as a quick update on this - Audi replaced rear suspension linkages and also the rear shocker - all fixed! However another little rattle developed with the sub in the back, turns out it was a screw cap cover for the inner boot lining so I used a bit of insulation tape to tape it down.
