    I've got the electric load cover in my vehicle, not sure if this is standard?

    when deployed it rattles quite a lot, is this normal?

    Yes it's standard. No the rattle is not normal, doesn't do it on my C7. Have them look at it under warranty

    tbf i retracted the load cover today and the rattle is still there, think it's more likely to be the hinge/exhaust

    and unsurprisingly Audi can't look at it for a month!

    Electric tailgate became standard for the 2014 model year

    I'm sure my 15 plate hasn't got an electric load cover.... I can see cables in there but nothing moves when I open the boot

    Just sat in my boot and I can see the cable moving but I'm missing a some kind of bracket/clip which attached to the runners and load cover. Does any one have a part number?

    Make sure both inserts are in tracks up the pillars..... mine has a habit of one side falling out when used manually.

    to confirm the rattle was the boot latch... which was tightened and then began rattling again

    Audi are replacing it today
