    Weird noise on unlocking / closing door / boot

    Forum Key Rings
    Hi all

    Since Purchasing the car I've always had this weird rattle which happens when unlocking the car / closing the boot. It doesn't do it all the time and appear to be coming from below the rear fuse box at the back on the right hand side.

    Any ideas? Video below.

    Strange, have you had someone in the boot listening? It does sound like a plastic bit catching. Try removing bits one at a time, boot lid carpet, light cluster, boot rubber seal etc. Good luck.

    Got my head underneath the car and found it to be this. Any idea what it is?

    Turns out to be the electric parking break. That's what the part number relates too

    Glad you found the source mate, I have no idea on those new fangled electronic parking brakes. Hope you get it sorted. There are a few Siggies being broken on here, may be an idea to try a "new" motor/servo or whatever it is.

    Luckily it's under a extended warranty and going in on the 16th. There are few electrical gremlins going on with my car at the moment. Getting it all repaired before the warranty runs out ha.
