Brera creaking at tail gate

I've gotten used to the creaky front seats but recently, the tailgate has also been creaking. This occurs regardless of whether its being run over uneven surfaces or not.

The creak sounds a bit like plastic rubbing metal so I think its something to do with either the boot trim or rear spoiler.

Anyone else has this and how was it sorted?

Try rubbing some silicone grease on the rubber boot seal. I have this problem with my drivers door seal and this works a treat and the creaking goes immediately. The only pain is that you have to re-apply every month or so...but it only takes seconds to do so not a problem really...not sure if this is the problem with your boot, but well worth a try.
