Hi F20 drivers,

get your trunk lid checked in the first place.
it's a common problem on c segment cars.
it could be your cargo cover too.
other problem could be your back seats. if you have folding rear seats you can apply some lubricant on their locking points / panel that they rest.

Pretty much every hatchback develops some flex in the rear boot at some point I imagine. It's just due to the rigidity of the car.

That said I've heard some rattling that is caused by improper seating of the boot cover.

Tried lubricating latches, seat covers checked, empty boot etc...

it comes only from passenger side, something is flexing

Rip off the boot lid and make it a glorious pickup.

tried to solve the problem but no luck

checked boot lid closure and gaps and looks fine to me
rear seat latches taped but sound is still there
put the car on the lift to inspect suspension and all seems fine

the sound can be heared when car is going uphill or downhill when chassis is flexing lik kriiik kriiik sound and sometimes for no reason over bumpy roads or small brake pedal press

really annoying

have you considered removing the boot shelf and putting it back again?



one of my window seals kriiik kriiiked or atleast made a similar sound until ive had it replaced,try inspecting the seals of the boot/back half of the car.

(the seal creaks happened on bumpy roads or when escalating hills and going down slopes but only at the beginning.....they did not make any sounds when braking though....ofc expect when i was breaking on bumpy roads then yes they did make a sound)

door seals are my second problem, driver one squeaks alot and stops when I drop a window a bit.

Today I drove the car with boot open and sound is still there, so its the suspension related or brakes I dont know.
It's loud pretty much and happens mostly after the braking or sometimes over bumps.
recently I addes Eibachs on my car and visually rear suspension is like brand new?

mister luger i have made a topic about the window seal creak

http://f20.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1413231

i have had this problem myself and sadly there was not much else i could do besides changing the window seal....mine did look gasly....you can try the solutions given to me by the other members...they might work...and if not then the last solution would be changing the seal
