Could just be a piece of trim that wasn't seated properly. If you can replicate the sound your dealer may have some ideas as to the cause.

If its just one of the panels then odds are the dealership won't both looking at it, but investigating for yourself where its coming from and stuffing the area with foam might be a solution.

I think I’ve found the culprit. I adjusted the rubber stoppers on the rear lift gate. That seemed to help a bit. I wonder if the lift gate wasn’t sitting right when it was closed causing it to rattle?

I also have the same problem, but when the car stays in the sun the noise disappears. I think it's not the tailgate but rather inside its lining. I disassembled it but found nothing that could vibrate and make noise. It annoys me a lot. has anyone solved it?

Check your back seatbelts. Was driving me nuts. There is a holder for them by the seat and that was it. The buckle was rattling.

Do you have the cargo cover extended? I have a feeling it also causes some noise when going over bumps.

Has anyone else had this problem?
Yes I have. Does it sound like the plastic interior tailgate rattling each time you hit a bump especially a big bump? I took my tailgate apart also and put some extra sound deadening in between but still there? So I am going to check your spoiler fix tomorrow to see if it could be my issue.

Kevin 96K, also check the pressure caps that secure the spoiler well.
in total five bolts (two on the sides of the trunk door behind the rubber plug and three under the plastic cover of the rear window wiper).
Let me know if you solve, thanks.
