Mein Auto: 2003X5
X5 E53 2003 Tail Gate Rattle

I ahve a 2003 E53 with 95,000 miles. No problems to date, bought it in 03.
The tail gate has rattled over the last 2-3 years and I have corrected it by adjusting the stop on the frame for the top lid. The rubber is worn and the stop on the lid itself needs replacing. Is there any place or a fix for this without going to the dealer?

Not sure what the "stop on the frame" is? On mine (an 01, but should be the same), there are two rubber bumpers at 3:00 and 9:00 position on the hatch opening/surround. These can be adjusted outward to stop the hatch from rattling. Have you tried that? I think it's a T15 Torx bit with a 10mm locknut.
