Collected my B8 S-Line Avant on 3rd September. Only covered 100miles or so in September, however put on some 1500 in October. During October I became aware of a rattle from the boot area which has increased in frequencey and volume over the past two weeks. I've emptied the boot of everything (blinds/boot cover/wheel/toolkit/false panels etc etc) and still it persists. I note that the pin located on the boot lip which the boot lock secures itself around is loose and makes a slight rattle sound and so can only assume this is the cause. Anyone else suffered this problem? Could someone with a B8 Avant check the brass/gold pin on their hatch to see if it has any movement and report back? I know this is a problem I should pass to the dealer however I'm keen to establish the route cause of the problem before I give it to the dealer as no doubt I'll get the usual "We can't hear anything" or "Thats the noise it makes" response after they've spent two days stripping down the boot and scratched all the bumper and trim in the process...anybody able to help/comment?
Many thanks in anticipation...
PS The boot hatch opens/closes electrically if that makes a difference
