Squeaky rattle from rear

Ive had a VERY annoying rattle from the back of the car for yonks now, which sounds like interior trim loose, only heavier. Best described as a 'squeaky' rattle. Ive finally traced it to the boot - drive with the boot open, it disappears - so I guess it must be something to do with the latch mechanism. Anyone had this or fixed it, any ideas on adjusting the boot or does the latch need replacing? Its slightly strange because the bootlid doesnt seem at all loose but I guess it must be. Or could it be related to the hinges even?

I tightened up and greased the hinge bolts. they are behind the rear seat backs. squeak now gone.
also there are two rubber adjusters on the rear inside edge of the bootlid, may need winding out a little.
