Hi i have purchased a Honda type r 2007. I love the car and i have taken a great interest in making it feel like new again. everything else seems in order apart from the interior rattles. I have sorted out a few such as the squeak coming from the interior light panel, taped up the metal seat clips but there is abit of rattling coming from the boot. i have discovered that the tailgate panel needs to be clipped in properly swell as the rear panel that leads to the boot. Is there any guide that can help me? i need to remove the panel under the back window and also the boot panel which is behind the rear lights.

thanks in advanced

One big rattle which I thought was coming from the rear was in fact the passenger seat belt when not in use, hits the plastic trim its against... So not i place them across the top of the seat to stop it.
Hi mate i also sorted that one lol. just too many or is it just my car?

Thanks for the help guys :) when the car goes over a speed bump theres alot of noise. Is this normal? It does sound like the whole rear end shakes. Isit because of the firm suspension?

That parcel shelf >_<

From what I understand, there are more rattles in the FN2 than the Texan desert, trying to locate some of them can be a pain!

a good squirt of silicone can silence most things.

thanks guys. the replies have been very useful. i have removed the rear boot panel and reattached it making sure it clipped in properly. the rattle is reduced however i need to do the same to the pillar and put foam on the panels before putting them on. at the moment the rear right pillar seems to not be clipped in properly

Check the back seats are clicked in properly,check the boot stoppers are set correctly and check the false floor in the boot is in properly.

Not normal at all. Should feel a hard thump but no rattles etc. Rear should not shake at all.

Put some foam tape on the rear quarter plastic that the parcel shelf sits on, I did this and the noise stopped completely. Couldn't believe I waited nearly 2 years to do it!

I have a 2007 FN2- brilliant...….but the rattles! Had my windscreen removed for roof respray under warranty and full struts replaced at front etc. All the under bonnet trim rattles and the windscreen plastic too, all popped in correctly with trim fixings but now rattling! I think clear silicone on the windscreen seal might be the solution!

Yep just did that a day ago and most of the back end rattling has gone. I also put slivers of foam draft excluder behind the rattling clips that lift the shelf when you open the hatch. No more rattles!!
