View Full Version : Hatch rattle...

...over bumps. Even the tiniest of bumps. Does it when I close the door too. I presume it's from pressure of the door closing lifting the hatch up and rattling.
Not sure if the lock isn't pulling the striker down far enough. Or maybe it is misaligned? My 94 did it and a body guy fixed it for me at my last job(can't remember what it was that he did).

Now my 99 is doing it. Anyone else had this problem?

PS it's really f-in loud. Stereo has a hard time covering it.

What shape is the weatherstripping in? Are the hinges tight? Can you adjust the latch to pull it down more?

Looked at it this morning. Weatherstriping is all good. Hinges have no sign of being loose. I'm going to get a flashlight to see if the meet-point is aligned.

can be something as simple as lubing the weather strips around the entire rear hatch and lubing the rubber stoppers.
