    Really bad rattle from saloon rear

    I have a 2003 1.9tdi
    lately I've noticed a really loud rattle coming from the rear passenger side, it sounds like a piece of trim Is loose but can't find anything
    i only hear it when driving on bad roads with potholes etc

    anyone else had any really bad rattles from this area (boot, rear arch area)

    Pure guess work here, but have you tried checking the inner arch liner, or possibly a heat shield under the car?

    Really bad rattle from saloon rear

    Check the rear shock top mounts. It's an aluminium mount with rubber inside and the rubber can split allowing the shock to rattle about in the housing.

    Right, little update
    had a quick look and I think it's the handbrake cable rattling against the plastic tray and exhaust heat plate

    I tucked it under the tray and it stopped it for about 3mile ha
