Rattle rear righthandside

Post by Ludokloek » Sun Jun 07, 2020 12:51 am

After 20000 kilometers my car developed a rattle at the rear righthandside of the car. Most noticable at speeds below 30 km/hour. And driving over speedbumps or other bumpy road surface. Very annoying sound. Anyone had the same problem? And maybe has a solution. Thanks in advance.

I had the same problem. Turned out to be the rear seat locking mechanism (U shaped latch behind rear seat). The "fix" was simply applying tape around the latch to give a firm grip and, whilst rudimentary, has worked well.

The tape trick helped. No more rattle. Thanks. Made some improvements with a piece of flexible packing foam and some tape.

Agyll, thanks for great advice.
Do you mean U shape latch is this [2] ?

It is the u shaped latch behind the seat. Where you unlatch the seat backrest to fold it forward.

Hi,

This brings back memories, as on my first A1 I had an annoying rattle caused by the U shaped latch. The dealer said it was a common issue on the early A1 models, so they applied a non official fix using webbing around the latch. No more rattle!
