I love my GT Cloverleaf.
and I have the boot rattle
and the fuse box rattles too, so I thought I would investigate.

All the plastic trim in/on the boot hatch isn't securely screwed into place. The screws are tight, for sure, but they don't hold the trim properly. You can just pull it about. and it creaks. I shall have a look at the weekend to see why the screws don't screw in all the way.

Fuse box rattle. I undid the 2 retaining screws, well one actually, the other one didn't retain anything. The clip on the inside wasn't holding the screw, they had forgotten to line it up. They have also forgotton another clip. But I re-aligned the clip and tightened it up. Lovely!!

Now, should I let my supplying dealer sort it out or do I just think it's part of the Alfa Romeo character and do it myself.

BUT, I really love my car. It's beautiful.

If you think you're a hero, check you have a guitar
