Trunk rattle

Did a quick search but really didn't find much, maybe it's the cold but I hear a rattle coming from the passenger side area of the trunk/hatch lid. Thought it was the lower hatch trim, so I put some foam under that still came back - Any help of a fix before I have the dealer look at this because I'm still under warranty.


Thanks

Is everything tied down well in the spare tire area?

Hey IngotMK3,

Let me know if you decide to head into the dealer; I'll look into possible options on my end.

I go to bass in Sheffield normally - Any things to look at myself or point me a the right direction before I have to waste time with a rental and all that stuff I don't want to deal with, thanks!

I get a clunk from back there sometimes when I start moving in reverse.

Hey could you explain where this is in a little more detail? I have this exact thing happening at highway speeds and is driving me insane.
