Something loose in the hatch

Something has come loose in the hatchback. I presume a bolt/screw/nut that is now free. Every time I open/close the hatch it rattles down to the bottom. Sounds quite chunky.

Rather than have the dealer throw it in the bin, I would like to have a look myself.

How to remove the interior trim of the hatch?

Generally, just pull the trim out. Watch out for random bolts in occasional places but mostly its a piece of p to take this car apart.

Have a look at the relevant diagrams here:

It will give you an idea if the relevant trim piece is just clipped in or actual fastened with a bolt.

Maybe my Hatchback fix will also work for you.
Maybe not
Unfortunately it is not a persistent rattle, but quite clearly when you raise the hatch you can hear something rolling down to the bottom (top of the hatch). Reverse when you close it. Something has come loose and fallen out inside.

Same probleme here on a Fastback From 2019 ...
When i open the tailgate i sometimes hear a noise and it disappears when i close it and reopen it.
In my case it looks like something is moving and goes somewhere but get stuck there for a moment.
And then later on it happens again ...

Iā€™ve noticed a bad rattle too, something is loose rattling around behind the plastic, can hear it when opening a closing the boot. Is there a quick guide for safely removing the trim to look?
