Sorted that annoying parcel shelf squeak

Thought this might be worth sharing for those of you that have to put up with that annoying squeak from the rear parcel shelf.
After initially thinking it was the speaker grille rubbing, I tracked the noise down to the plastic fixings that secure the parcel shelf to the car, just inboard of the speaker grilles on each side of the shelf.
Cure was to simply remove the speaker grille, pull the bracket/shelf up slightly and slip one of those little circular rubber pads that are fitted to kitchen drawers and doors (to stop them banging) under the bracket.
Hey presto, squeak gone, no need to removing the shelf or seats - happy days!!

Re: Sorted that annoying parcel shelf squeak

sometimes the squeak is also from the slat of the rear blind which
is not in place properly....Just another thought!!
