Rattle From Rear Of 03 Avensis Estate

Recommended Posts

Hi,

When the car is idling I can hear a rattle from the back of the car. I can hear the same rattle when I slam the boot. I doesn't appear to be the exhaust, I've checked spare wheel, jack etc and I've looked inside the tailgate and can't find anything rattling. Does anybody have an idea what it could be, somebody suggested the anti syphon device in the fuel filler.

It's fairly common for the latch/keeper on the hatchbacks to need adjusted. Worth checking.

I found it today, behind the bumper is a metal bar for crash impacts, this was loose so I attached it with some cable ties then a couple of self tapping screws holding it in place. A short term fix really until I can weld it but it has stopped the rattle. Thanks for the help.
