I've scoured through the search, and have not yet come by a thread that covers this issue. My parcel shelf creakes and carries on while I'm driving. Has anybody come up with a solution to this? My previous swift did this too. It must be a normal occurance with these cars.

Fair. If i can't get a hold of that, perhaps the soft material side of some velcro tape?

it shouldn't be that hard to come across, i have 3 rolls of it in my car. i think its called weatherstrip tape though. it's sticky on one side and foam padding on the other.

I got thrustrated with the noise and rattles, removed the 6x9's out of tray. I leaned it on the wooden fence, and kicked it in the middle as it folded in half, fken piece of s**t!!! :twisted: Besides it was already cracked in half, which was twice as annoying.

My dad says in his gs he had a sticky foam tape that was on the tailgate panel that covers the wipers etc, and when you shut the tailgate, the foam would go and rest of the shelf and keep it at rest when the hatch door is shut!...Need to try it with mine because mine is awfully noise on low speed bumpy roads

I have the same serious issue before, however it makes a lot of difference after I replaced the 18 years old stock shocks with a brand new ones BOGE, no tough no soft with very good damping with 4 brand new shocks.
