147 squeaks from the back
I've been trying to trace a really annoying squeak coming from the back of my 5dr 147 (06 plate 1.9 jtdm). I've eliminated the parcel shelf and the rear seats (I've read that you need to make sure that the folding rear seats are engaged properly when returned to the upright position).
I'm pretty sure that my squeak is from the tailgate, I have put silicon grease on the seal around the hatch which seemed to help, but then it came back... so tried more grease, but I think it's more to do with how the tailgate has shut and road speed/ road condition. There are also adjustable rests in the bottom corners of the tailgate, adjusted these out to make the hatch a tighter shut. Again, thought I'd sussed it when I went for a spin, but the squeak returned! I'm now working on the bracket that the catch locks on to (mounted with 2 no.25 torx bolts on the shut plate) trying adjusting that and adjusting the stops to try and get it right! The most annoying thing (apart from the squeak) is that I keep thinking I've got it and then next time out it's there again!
hope this helps, and if anyone has any ideas....
