Trunk lid noise

My MY16 535GT always have squeaking noise whenever go through bumper or make sharp turn, the noise is from back, almost sure it's the big trunk lid somewhat not tightly secured and makes the noise. The dealer once fixed it form a while, but it's keep coming back, not sure if it's worth dealer visit to fix it for real or just live with it. Any GT owner has the similar problem? The noise is quite annoying as I don't feel comfortable driving through bumpy roads without slowing down! If this is the known problem, and dealer won't be able to fix it or even messing things up, I probably have to live with it, but not ideal

If I remember correctly, the rubber bump stops are adjustable...they screw in/out. It might only take a slight adjustment on those to take up any slack. If you press down on the closed lid, does it move any?

As the rubber gaskets age, it might help to use some rubber dressing on them. This does two things, helps to preserve them and also lubricates them. May not solve the problem, but wouldn't hurt to try.

The round bump stops to the hatches just pull out, clicking as you do so. First make sure the silver circles have not come loose. Then allow a hatch to close as you would normally, and it will push the stops in, automatically setting the correct spacing.

Also there are 2 side stops in the rain gutters that are adjustable - see images 4 and 5 here:

Never remove any of the buttons securing the guttering unless you have to - they are tight and inner section can break allowing water in.
