I have it too , it only happened three times so far , ( my car has 2600 miles on the clock now ) , the first time i thought i have drove over something on the road ( but i have seen nothing ) it sounded like some big chunk of metal had hit the car in the back i have checked the car and there was no visible damage , the second time it sounded like there is something loose in the boot of the car , checked everything and there is nothing loose , third time the same noise and i thought that one of the wheels might be coming loose ( got the winter steelies on ) but no they are securely in the place , it drives me mad and i dont feel safe when driving the car , the problem is that i cannot replicate the sound if i want too it only happens every couple of weeks ( usualy when cornering ) if i take it to VW there is a very small chance that i be able to show them or replicate the sound , not happy . :thumbdown:

Hi all,

These boot rattles were driving me mad as well and with VW dealers absolutely clueless to sort them out, I stripped the boot interior this morning and I think I have found the source of the boot rattle evil...

On the left is a control module which I think is for the rear airbags. This was fitted so poorly and rattled freely while I push/pulled on it.

Youtube Clip:


I found the the control module on the right, which I think is for the rear parking sensors, was also very poorly fitted and again rattled freely with some push/pulling.
Image

Youtube Clip:


For the left module, I stuffed some soft foam on all the corners and used duct tape to tape it down securely. It is now absolutely dead quiet.
On the right module, I removed the module from the white cradle, taped the cradle securely to the body and then refitted the module and taped that as well with duct tape. Again, no more rattles.
I will take it for a drive later today and see if that has sorted the rattle problem. They were very poorly fitted and rattled loudly so I am sure they were the cause. :pray:

and how did you remove the big black panel on the left and right side to access the module? :think:

I was lookin today the same thing, but I don know how to remove it :think:


EDIT: I tried to stick my hand trought the hole where you change the lights, but there is nothing where your module is :think:

Hi Komar,

Removing the plastic trim in the boot is fairly easy.
First undo the M10 nut to remove the trim right at the back that surrounds the boot catch. Pull the trim away and upwards to remove. This allows you to remove the lower carpet sides below the left and right trims.
Image

Then undo the 3 torx screws on the plastic trims as pictured below. There is a plastic hook that hides one of the screws but it pulls off easily.
There is a clip at the back of the plastic trim that holds it quite secure but it will give way with some gentle force.
Once you have removed the trim, pull away the carpet sides from the seats towards the back. There are a few clips holding them in place but they release easily.
Image

I hope this helps... :thumbup:

My boot rattles are now gone...!!!!

Post20 Feb 2012 11:51

Great news peeps... I can confirm that my car is now boot rattle free :D

I use the very bumpy A505 to commute to work which drove me bonkers due to all the rattles but today not even a squeak came from the boot.
I think the module on the left is the main culprit as it was banging against the bodywork causing loud rattles.

What annoys me though is that we have paid a fair amount of money for our cars and then VW goes and use these poor quality mounting methods and in general, poor build quality.
Also, the VW dealerships for employing retards or "technicians" who have no pride in their workmanship that after two visits to fix these rattles, they could not sort it out. :angry-cussing: :angry-cussing:

It took me 30 minutes to fix this.

fixed my boot rattle :)

although after a 200 mile round trip this weekend ive noticed that with a passenger the passenger sides seems to rattle and creak a awful lot, sounds like its coming from the door card, rear quater and the seats, like a palstic trim is loose or something

any ideas?
Im booking my car into VW this week due tot he boot release not releasing properly so i can ask them to look in to it

Also my tsi is coming up to 35k miles about due its anual service , but i think it has a slight miss fire sometimes. i tried to overtake earlier in second gear and i got 2 pops and a lag of pwoer before it kicked in

Any ideas on this? maybe needs plugs replacing or a coilpack?

The Scirocco has a tendancy to twist a little more than most cars due to the rim less doors so I think some of the creaking is down to that.

Are you sure it just wasn't your traction control working? If not then yes, check the coil packs first although they are not really prone to failure on the Scirocco too much tbh. Always worth checking the plugs :thumbup:


I.had the car code read today. only bought up the dampers.because I've got.Einstein. and the.boot latch which seems fine.now he.cleared the code! as for coils there fine. he so ill try plugs first along with a service :)

Hey buddy,
having a couple of rattles myself and having to walk the dealer through everything. They eventually called HQ in Dublin to
sort out my dash rattle. Back to the rattle in the rear left. I'm having the same and initially though it was the coat hook
but we figured out yesterday the noise is coming from both sides and it's the plastic panel housing the airbag that's the
culprit.

Worth getting your dealer to check that out for you too. Mine is booked in again for next week so I have no fix to detail
as yet. I presume some insulating tape/foam will be used. I just hope they don't scre up the airbag on me. WIll keep ya posted...

Fixed my boot rattle yesterday :D After checking the rubber stops and struts for anything untoward, checking all the trim and stuff, removing the parcel shelf and anything else potentially loose I was on the verge of ringing the stealers.... then found my locking wheel bolt key had popped out of the rubber and was loose under the carpet :oops:

And fixed again (fingers crossed). I've not been able to adjust the rubber-stopper-plunger thingies (techie speak) because no matter what size allen key I bung up there they just won't engage. I've just put a couple of self-adhesive foam pads (Sellotape "Fixer Strip") to the black bits where the stoppers meet the bodywork and the knocking has completely stopped. So that was clearly the issue and I'll get the stealers to adjust the stoppers properly next time I'm in for a service. I think we're done for now though (again) :D
