F16 Rattling Tailgate
« on: October 11, 2017, 04:22:12 PM »
Hi all,

I've got a really bad rattle coming from the tailgate of my 10 month old X6. I think it's been getting progressively worse to the point that it now gets on my nerves. It rattles, creaks, groans, all sorts of different noises.
My father-in-law commented on it and said his Vitara doesn't do that!

I've booked it in at the dealers to let them have a look at it, but in the meantime, I just wondered if anyone else had had any similar experiences.

Cheers,
MarkP

Hi

I have not heard of a prob with the F16 X6 but some members with the earlier E53 X5's have had a prob where the rubber stop has perished and so the boot rattles, but that would be unlikely to happen with such a new car.

But it's worth checking the stops are there and not missing or loo,  see link below and item 6 on the diagram.

Thanks for the tip Graeme.
I'll have a good look at that at the weekend. It's not due to go in to the dealer until the beginning of November, the earliest they could lend me a car.

Thanks,
Mark
