Rattles fixed

Hi, after owning my ctr for 2 months I have managed to locate and fix the following rattles

1 - Tail gate, fix a small amount of tape around the lock latch to take up excess play in the lock. Then turn the boot stops out one turn it is sometimes necessary to adjust these yearly depending on how often you use the boot,

2 - Rear seats, again fix tape around the locking latch and around the seat base (lower guiderails) then plug in seatbelts

3 - Rev counter area, rubbing noise between display and dash, I used the double sided stick pads that you use to fix number plates to cars and cut them in half, then push the display forward and slide them into place. Use the pads as they are donít use them sticky.

4 - Windscreen cowl, - plenty of advise on about this.

Hope this helps, great car so far. Would be better without these minor problems.
