    This was the case for me as well. I did tighten those up and the rattle still went on. I took this damn thing apart several times and nothing helped. Turned out that my rattle came from mid rear seat. The bracket where it clamps to the adjacent seats was not holding on 100%. I use a piece of rag over the clamp. Noise is gone for good.

    Thank you for this information. The noise was driving me crazy! Had to tighten one side up as it was very loose and now the noise is gone.

    Another thing that causes a slight rattle is a thing cord in the rear by the spare tire. This is taped down but the tape dries out and the cord actually makes a loud rattling noise. Drove me nuts for months till I found it.

    Just tighten up these two nuts and rest easy.

    Finally got around to searching around for an answer to this rattling noise, and it looks like I let this get a little too severe before addressing the problem. The nuts under these two black caps are completely gone. Yesterday when closing my lift gate, I heard one fall through the body of the tailgate. I pulled off the plastic cover on the inside of the tailgate to check the other two to make sure my spoiler is still there, and they look secure, so I'm okay temporarily I think. Does anyone know the specific part to replace the two nuts under the black caps? And secondly, how the hell do I get the other two nuts that fell off out of the inside of the tailgate?! Thanks for any help.

    Fold your seats down and drive. See if noise is still there. If it is gone with folded seats, it is likely the clamp that holds seats in place. I had to use a piece of rag to make it tighter that there is no play which made the noise. It was the middle one in my case.

    My dealer fixed this exact issue. In my case the rear wing was wobbly. Also my rear 2016.5 center windshield mirror was wobbly too. They said its tight - but still tightened it.
