Anyone else suffer squeaks and rattling from the rear of their A6 Avant?

I've battoned everything down and even put some soundproofing around the spare wheel but there's a still a variety of squeaks and rattles especially over bad road surfaces.

Its hard to locate them when driving!

I have currently have a rattle at the rear n/s of my 3.0 tdi Avant, and its the heat shield around the rear silencer. The thin aluminium has corroded away around the steel washer and is flapping about a bit.

On my car all the rattles from the rear are caused by the trunk cover, it squeaks a lot
