Rattle with rear sunshade up
Rattles constantly when going over bumps etc. Doesn't rattle when it's down... I checked the nuts in the trunk. I can make it rattle with my hand by tapping in the middle of the rear deck when the shade is up. Driving me nuts. I like to keep the sunshade up to cut glare from headlights. Any ideas?

I would pull the parcel shelf out or at least get it loose enough to where you can look under it. Easy to say, but it requires removing the rear seat (bottom and back), headrests and side trim panels. Then have someone pound from inside the trunk and see if something bonces or is loose.

Good luck.

There are two sets of nuts, the trunk ones and a set under the carpted shelve in between that are glued to the underside of the cardboard shelve.
