How to cure the parcel shelf rattle in a GT, for a few quid.
The rear parcel shelf rattle has annoyed the hell out of me for a few months now. I thought I had cracked it with a spray of silicone on the rubbers, no suck easy luck.
The two rear rubber stops are on the shelf, so it isn't missing anything it should have.
Oddly the two rubber stops on the plastic trim that seats the shelf don't match up to the area that touches the plastic. In other words the rubber stops are being by passed, causing the shelf to bounce on the plastic. This can be seen by the wear on the shelf area.
So armed with a tube of super glue and 3 rubber electrical gromits I set about curing this problem. Works a treat! Total silence from the shelf on even the bumpiest of surfaces! Bliss.
I've attached a photo of each side to show the location:
Moved over to the dark side
And loving it
