    I think mine is the same. Can you also hear it when you close your door? Open the boot and it stops?

    i have a similar thing but my boot is totally stripped and my arch linings at rear are out so mine could be a loose bracket but i thought mine was the exhaust heat shield...

    Hmmm... Kev yours is pretty much stripped out isn't it?

    Maybe boot shelf if it's still there or some component on spare wheel tools? Just trying to think of something basic that maybe easy to overlook...

    I've got a sneaky feeling there's a flap of some kind which lets air pressure out of the car when doors are closed etc and it could be that........
