  • Parcel shelf rattling

    There are quite a few threads around regarding the shelf most recommend the same thing which is get some of the pads from the link below and stick a couple along the shelf ledges, I put two on each side, rattle gone />



    I also cut them square so they fit perfectly and look like they should be there rather than something randomly stuck on.

      Does anyone have an actual picture of where these go to stop the rattle ?

      Mine is doing my head in so I want to be sure they are in the right place to stop the rattle.

              I sorted mine using these oval shaped foam pads, that i've had in my toolbox for donkeys years....you know when you keep something and know it'll come in useful one day, well, they have!!



              They dont look as obvious as they do in these pics, the flash picked them up more!

                          Turning round the rubbers didn't work for me. They are longer and it did quieten it down but didn't solve it completely until I got the foam pads.

                            just turn the rubber grommits/stops the rubber bit that meets the shelf on the tailgate door/hatch as they are longer and that will solve the problem. Pull them out and you will notice there is a long end and a short end leave the long end showing and job done



                            I tried that and it made no difference, my grommets are the same size when turned,

                              Afternoon all,



                              I've had my siggy for about 10 days now and the rattle from the parcel shelf has been driving me mental. I figured it was just mine but having found this thread, I'll be sorting it this weekend!



                              Cheers



                              Pete



                              Don't wait until the weekend, the sweet relief from not having a parcel shelf banging around is worth the 30 seconds (literally) it will take to turn round the rubber bungs.



                              Lol.
