    Help from astra coupe owners!!

    My lovely coupe has developed an annoying rattle from the rear end; sometimes it’s worse than others but is driving me mad!

    I thought I sussed it the other day, thinking it was the carpet panel on the boot lid, so took it off to see if it went. Two days later it’s doing it again but isn’t quite as loud!

    I’m thinking it may be the parcel shelf? If so can you remove it & pack it with foam?

    Has any body else had this same problem? If so where was it coming from? And how did you get rid of it?

    I had same problem, and was advised on here to wind the stoppers out a little (1/4 turn or so) but it just made the boot harder to open/close.

    I wound them all the way in, and the squeak/creak/rattle stopped, and boot now feels 'loose' if anything.

    Its common for the boot light switch to rub/squeek on the boot lid.

    I sprayed some grease onto it and it stopped

    I've had a rattle like this too, ever since I fitted my Irmscher spoiler! I thought this was the cause of it but I'll try a few of these answers now.
