Hi All,

Quick question to help me on my way please:

Note: I've used sonax gummipflege a few times already of the trim areas.

Roof down = no rattles

Roof Up = lots of rattles

The roof cover (plastic shelf) I think contributes to the rattles and I want to get something for that. But the rattles and clunking seem to be coming from behind me in the boot. Advice would be greatfully appreciated.

The boot 'latch' worked itself loose on my 2005 171, at about 90,000 miles it must be said. It was a b.......d to tighten too!
The 'roof cover' on both the 171 and the 172 are prone to 'chatter' a bit, and I've used the magic elixir you mention all round the 'joins', which seemed to help.
Good luck with your endeavours on this bright and sunny day...

I find that the roof cover (plastic shelf) rattles if I leave it open, so I don't any more... much better to leave it closed, so I can put the roof down whenever I want without stopping anyway (I also have a SmartTop fitted). :D
