    When I close the boot there is a rattle - it sounds like something has fallen off somewhere inside. It's not a problem when driving as it doesn't rattle on the move, it just sounds rubbish when I shut the boot.

    I haven't tried to pull it apart yet to look as it's not a major issue, but just wondered if anyone else had had the same issue and if so was it easy to fix?

    Thanks in advance,

    Stu

    Mine had a rattly noise when I closed it, but it wasn't internal. It was the number plate holder clattering aganst the boot panel. I unscrewed the holder, removed the plate and attached it directly to the boot with doubles-sided sticky tape. Much quieter now.
