Possible parcel shelf,just had a look and the rubber bungs arnt touching the boot lid,

look as thiugh the shelf has bowed,even if i raise the rubber bits on the panels that sit on either side of the parcel shelf the rubber grommets on the edge of the shelf still dont touch the boot lid so maybe its rattling up and down??

Nah tried woth the parcel shelf out and its still bloody doing it,

get a cracking noise from the tailgate as if somethings moving,

god knows what though as i have belted everything aznd its all tight,

only plastic part of the trim that moves at all is the piece that runs along the top of the boot lid,where the brake light is situated.

but it has black cloth stuff on it so that shouldnt squeek?

hi,
get the car on a ramp and check the bushes on the rear drop links,(cant remember the exact name of them) you will most likley find the bushes are worn, i had the same problem on my mk 1 td, sounded like it was fron the boot area.
please post back with your findings.
regards, alan

Jump in the back and get someone else to drive it.

I resorted to this after not being able to find a squeak; from the driver's seat it sounded like it was coming from the driver's door seal at about head height, from front passenger seat it sounded like it was coming from the headlining in between the rear driver's side door and the boot.

I jumped in the back and found it was just the door seal squeaking against the trim right by the small window on the rear door, a little bit of jiggery-pokery and it was fine!

I know where you're coming from as I've had the boot trim out, headlining pulled down, door seals out, stuck foam padding in places that I probably shouldn't have, etc.

Hope you find it.

Cheers,

Nick
