    Drop the rear seats forward, and turn the rubber bungs by the seat catch anticlockwise about a turn or so. It got rid of the horrible creaking I was experiencing in mine, soddin Vauxhall tech couldnt find it .


    Wrap a little insulation tape around the hinge points for the parcel shelf, that helped reduce the rattle from there.

    I could do with getting behind the NSR door card to access another rattle if anyone can help, I mean how the hell do you get the rear uprights out
